My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Roots of Health, Puerto Princesa, Palawan, , Philippines
Stars Foundation http://www.starsfoundation.org.uk/, has been working with the Roots of Health team for just over a year now, having awarded the organisation an 'Impact Award' in 2016, which recognise and reward outstanding locally-led organisations improving the lives of children and young people. My role is as Senior Programme Officer for the Asia-Pacific region.
Throughout the assessment process, the Roots of Health team highlighted and celebrated their successes and strengths, but were also open and transparent about their learning as an organisation, and the challenges they face. There is a strong 'learning culture' embedded across the organisation, which is very much to their credit.
We are so proud to be supporting Roots of Health’s efforts in raising awareness of reproductive health rights and addressing the knowledge gap in family planning information and the lack of access to reproductive health services, and would highlight the the participatory and community-led approach they take.
