About Fondacio Asia

Fondacio in Asia - Our story

Fondacio’s journey began in Asia through the birth of the two communities Malaysia in 1981 and in Philippines in 1982. The growth during the first decade was through the presence of French members of Fondacio who came to Asia as fulltime lay missionaries. The main orientation during the first decade was the transmission of the Spirituality of Fondacio and the formation of local leaders. Today, we are engaged especially in youth education and social development projects.

Firstly, we envision the Institute of Formation Fondacio Asia (IFFAsia) as a Hub of formation, a network of Fondacio centers in the Asian region. For this purpose, we co-created with the young people and organizations a program to form Christian youth and people of other faith. Above all, we wanted to give them the opportunities to make a difference in the world and the Church by harnessing their spirituality and potential for the common good.

Secondly, we have built Young Lives across Asia, particularly in the Philippines, Myanmar, Laos, Malaysia and Vietnam. This is to create opportunities for out-of-school youth who are financially challenged, but also for all those who have the thirst for formation. Indeed, we are targeting all those who want to become competent workers and contributors to society through quality human development and skills training.
