STRENGTHENING PARTNERSHIPS THROUGH THE SUPPORT OF TCIS
Our continuous collaboration with Habitat for Humanity’s Terwilliger Center for Innovation in Shelter (TCIS) cemented many outstanding achievements in the Fiscal Year 2021.
Recently, Habitat Philippines’ homeowner communities have become instrumental in piloting the community test of a Learning Management System (LMS) developed by the School of Knowledge for Industrial Labor, Leadership and Service, Inc. (SKILLS) in partnership with TCIS.
Our partnership with TCIS also jumpstarted the ongoing discussions with the Lafarge-Holcim global group expand its portfolio in the Philippines by making it more inclusive for the affordable housing segment. Habitat Philippines also joined TCIS in the Way Forward Coalition, a group of housing-focused organizations united behind a central aim of elevating housing as part of a COVID-19 recovery strategy. This led to the development of the Creative Housing Actions (CHA), the coalition’s signature policy initiative, which aims to engage governments to identify housing initiatives that will deliver significant value and the policies needed to make them possible.
