Who We Are

The CARD Mutually Reinforcing Institutions or CARD MRI is a group of mutually reinforcing institutions with a common goal of eradicating poverty in the Philippines and upholding the lives of the Filipinos.


Established on December 1986 as a social development foundation by a group of 15 rural development practitioners, CARD MRI is committed to empower socially-and-economically challenged women and families to eventually transform them into responsible citizens for their community and the environment. From its humble beginnings, CARD MRI has evolved to fourteen development institutions.
