The Foundation recently attended a free discussion with accredited foundations nationwide entitled “Malayang Talakayan” or literally Free Discussion last August 8-9, 2019 at Microtel Acropolis, Libis, Quezon City represented by its Foundation-Executive Director, Mr. Gerald V. Legaspi.
The forum, led by the Department of Social Welfare and Development national office, was attended by 52 representatives of government and non-government Social Welfare Agencies (SWAs). It aims to generate creative ideas, innovative strategies, and share good practices as well as to solicit suggestions or recommendation from SWAs on how to encourage other agencies to apply for accreditation and/or level up their accreditation status.
La Rose Noire Foundation, Inc. was one of the forum’s presenters wherein it shared its journey in achieving a DSWD Level 2 Accreditation status. The Foundation is among the fastest non-government organization to achieve this accreditation and is considered the second organization to achieve this status for the entirety of Region III.
