JICA Alumni Association of the Philippines (JAAP)
With the goal of merging the alumni associations in the Philippines under the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) Training Program, a signing meeting of the articles of incorporation and constitution and by-laws was held on March 22, 2013 at the JICA Philippine Office forming the JICA Alumni Association of the Philippines, Inc. (JAAP).
JAAP is a product of the unification of the three alumni associations namely, The Philippines-Japan Fellows Associations (PHILJAFA), whose members are attendees of the courses under the Training and Dialogue Program; Philippine-ASEAN-Japan Friendship Association for the 21st Century, Inc. (PAJAFA 21), for those who participated the Training Program for Young Leaders; and recipients of the Japan Grant Aid for Human Resource Development Scholarship (JDS).
The three alumni associations were merged to strengthen the participation and network of the scholars and improve the management and coordination of their projects, which are all supported by JICA.
