This Brief is about how the Homeless People’s Federation Philippines developed a different development path with support from the Asian Coalition for Community Action (ACCA), through providing funds to community organizations and trusting them to prioritize and use funding to address needs. The text is drawn from a discussion between two community leaders from the Philippines (Ruby Papeleras and Ofelia Bagotlo) and Somsook Boonyabancha, the director of the Asian Coalition for Community Action.
