Philkofa promotes equitable and sustainable development

The Philippine KOICA Fellows Association, Inc. (PHILKOFA) is the alumni association of the participants to academic and training courses, workshops, seminars, and other activities sponsored by the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) in the Republic of Korea.

PHIKOFA aims to make better world together by

promoting equitable and sustainable development
of its partner countries.

We are also actively participating
in the international community’s effort to

enable poor people
to improve their quality of life.

Vision

By 2020, 20% of KOICA scholars have shared skills, expertise, learnings, knowledge and services to target beneficiaries and communities towards the betterment of lives in various sectors and communities.

  • We maintain linkages between and among KOICA scholars here and abroad through social networking sites, newsletter, and website.

  • We collaborate with other organizations for continuing education and resource mobilization.

  • We conduct community services.

  • We establish mechanisms for sustainability

Where

Our membership base is distributed in four geographic areas – National Capital Region, Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.

How

A network of regional coordinative mechanisms serves as the communication and support link between officers and members in the different regions of the country. In short, we host and attend events from all over!

Who

Each area is headed by a vice president. There are six standing committees in the association, namely: Finance and Awards, Education and Training, Sports and Cultural Affairs, Social Services, Membership and Public Information, and Special Concerns.

All Filipino participants of KOICA-sponsored scholarship and training programs shall automatically become members of the association.
