Last year, I had the honor of working with the Mindanao Trust Fund, a World Bank project that enables Bangsamoro institutions to uplift the region via livelihood and other programs. They’ve done great, amazing work, improving the lives of tens of thousands of people in a traditionally conflict-afflicted area of the Philippines.
My own contribution to the MTF’s mission was humble: I was there to design collateral materials ranging from ecobags to annual reports to stickers.
What made this freelance work so fulfilling, however, was actually seeing these tiny pieces of work being shared and used in the furtherance of development work. I felt proud knowing that however small my contribution was, it was of help to the MTF’s mission.
