My Work


This year I am serving in Connor, Apayao with the E-CARE Foundation (Episcopal Community Action for Renewal and Empowerment) in the Diocese of Northern Luzon in the Philippines.  

 The ECARE Foundation is the newly-incorporated development foundation of the Episcopal Church that strives to work with communities to enable them to mobilize their assets and resources and leverage external partnerships so they can advance from a state of economic survival and/or subsistence into self-reliance and sustainability while strengthening values of sharing, caring and witnessing as well as gender sensitivity and environmental stewardship.
The Foundation adopts the ABCD [asset-based community development] approach where the assets and resources of communities are considered the primary building blocks and determining factors of sustainable development.
