Convergence meeting of Zero Extreme Poverty Philippines 2030
Jeu 17/10/2019

The Zero Extreme Poverty Philippines 2030 (ZEP2030) is a civil society-led movement launched in 2015 that envisions “Filipino families enjoying the fullness of life in sustainable communities”. Our collective mission is “to uplift one million Filipino families from extreme poverty to self-sufficiency by the year 2030.”  

ZEP2030 is a national coalition of multi-stakeholders working together through collective impact, with seven thematic clusters anchored on the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals: agriculture and fisheries, education, environment, health, housing and shelter, livelihood, and partnerships for Indigenous Peoples. 

Overall coordination is managed by the Philippine Business for Social Progress (PBSP) which serves as the ZEP2030 Secretariat and International Care Ministries is the lead cluster coordinator for Health Thematic Cluster.

This year, we are moving towards consolidating efforts on the ground and linking organizations for convergence building.  The importance of coming together and synchronizing our efforts is needed more than ever to move us closer to our goal. In this regard, ZEP2030, in partnership with the University Community Engagement and Advocacy Council-Ateneo De Davao University and the Philippine Misereor Partnership Inc. - Davao Region Cluster, cordially invite you to be part of the 1st Davao Convergence Meeting. This meeting, which coincides with the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, is an endeavor to gather ZEP2030 members and potential partners in Davao Region. 

This Davao Convergence Meeting will be held on Thursday, October 17, 2019, 09:00 AM – 3:00 PM at the Xavier Hall, 8th Floor, Ateneo De Davao University, Roxas Avenue, Davao City.
