Help people live in a more human world.
Fondacio’s journey began in Asia through the birth of the two communities in Philippines and Malaysia in 1981. The growth during the first decade was through the presence of French members of Fondacio who came to Asia as fulltime lay missionaries. The main orientation during the first decade was the transmission of the Spirituality of Fondacio and the formation of local leaders. Today, we are engaged in youth education and social development projects in Asia. We have built Youth Leadership and Development Centers (YLDC) across Asia, particularly in the Philippines, Myanmar, Laos, Malaysia and Vietnam. This is to create opportunities for out-of-school youth who are financially challenged and all those who have the thirst for formation to become competent workers and contributors to society through quality human development and skills training. We envision the Institute of Formation Fondacio Asia (IFFAsia) as a Hub of formation, a network of Fondacio centers in the Asian region, co-creating with the young people and organizations to form Christian youth and people of other faith, giving them the opportunities to make a difference in the world and the Church by harnessing their spirituality and potential for the common good.
