|Community-Based Employment Program
CBEP provides employment to skilled, semi-skilled, and low-skilled workers in the community where the program is undertaken through government undertakings, whether infrastructure or non-infrastructure. The program has been implemented for more than two decades now, though it is called in different names i.e., Emergency Community Employment Program, Community Employment and Development Program, Kabuhayan 2000, Rural Works Program, and Emergency Employment Program.
|Freedom Project of the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom
The Freedom Project aims to recognize outstanding initiatives in the Philippines that promote, safeguard and maximize the benefits of freedom. It seeks to translate freedom from a mere concept to actual programs that influence how individuals perceive themselves in relation to their role in society. The Freedom Project fosters appreciation of freedom as it relates it to issues that affect people and communities, and to solutions where one can be part of. Participatory democracy, good governance, human rights and competition exemplify freedom. The Freedom Project is looking for initiatives that bear these standards. Ultimately, through recognition, public awareness on these principles will heighten, and there will be replication and involvement.
