As the Compact drew to a close, the MCA, Philippines sought the expertise of a professional team who could rightfully capture, document, and feature the impact the Compact has made within Philippine society.
ASSIST Creativelab’s veteran team of writers and photographers was parachuted to the remote project sites of MCA-P where they took due time to immerse with the beneficiaries, understand the subtle nuances of how their lives were changed for good as a result of the Compact’s projects, and tell the true stories of upliftment and transformation.
