Unlad Kabayan Migrant Services Foundation, Inc.

About Us | Who We Are

Community Development in the PhilippinesUnlad Kabayan is a social entrepreneurship non-government organization (NGO) linking migration to community development in the homeland. In Filipino, 'unlad' means 'to develop, progress, or prosper' while 'kabayan' is what we call our fellow Filipinos abroad.

Established in the Philippines and registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission as a non-profit organization in 1996, Unlad Kabayan pioneered the innovative approach of harnessing migrant workers' resources to bear on local economy development. We build decent jobs and livelihood in the homeland, helping communities collectively harness their resources so Filipinos can migrate out of choice, not necessity.
