Developing Young Leaders for a Renewed Asian Church and Society

The Institute of Formation, Fondacio Asia (IFFAsia) is a school of Discipleship - Mission for young adults and lay in Asia. It is an initiative of a group of ordinary persons, laity from Malaysia and the Philippines belonging to Fondacio, a Catholic lay association, and concerned for the lack of any formation institutes or programs for young lay persons in Asia that will equip them for any social or pastoral work.

IFFAsia was launched in May 2006 in Quezon City, Philippines. It is at the service of local Churches and communities in the region. Its program requires the partnership of three parties - the participants and the local Churches and communities, with IFF Asia. IFFAsia opens an alternative career or life path for the young and helps them to engage in the peripheries and be in the mission to serve through the local church and civil society.
