Continuing the Legacy of Volunteerism : Angat Buhay Achieves PCNC Accreditation

A year since its inception, Angat Buhay remains steadfast in its dedication to community upliftment, bolstering its commitment to good governance with the recent acquisition of the Philippine National Council for NGO Accreditation (PCNC) recognition. This notable achievement, secured merely one year after its formal launch in July 2022, reflects Angat Buhay's unwavering commitment to excellence, transparency, and accountability – qualities recognized not only by the government but also by various donor agencies.

On August 30, Angat Buhay proudly received the PCNC accreditation, surpassing the stringent standards set for NGOs. This milestone prompted a heartfelt expression of gratitude from the Executive Director, Raffy Magno, who acknowledged the challenging process undertaken by Angat Buhay to achieve this accreditation. In a Facebook post, Magno emphasized the accreditation's value as a catalyst for continuous improvement in the NGO's internal systems and processes.

"Mahirap-hirap ang proseso na pinagdaanan ng Angat Buhay para makuha ito. Pero sobrang sulit dahil naging tulay ang accreditation na ‘to para patuloy nating ma-improve ang systems at processes ng ating NGO," Magno shared.

The PCNC accreditation serves as a testament to Angat Buhay's dedication to good governance and effective management. Magno highlighted that the accreditation would help streamline and organize their internal systems and processes, fostering an environment of efficiency and effectiveness.
