Communication Foundation for Asia is a pioneer in development communication. It was established in 1973 as a non-stock, non-profit organization, but its origins go way back to 1960, when the Social Communications Center was born with the publication of the Philippine Catholic Digest. Both organizations were founded by the Dutch missionary, Fr Cornelio Lagerwey, MSC, in collaboration with his mission partner Genaro V. Ong and other lay Filipino communicators. Together they pursued a mission of media production and training for the spiritual upliftment and empowerment of people.
The Communication Foundation for Asia has evolved into a multi-media center with almost 100 staff, working on video documentaries and TV programs, producing regular educational and religious publications for distribution to around three hundred thousand student subscribers nationwide, conducting training workshops on communication skills and media education, and organizing media events such as film festivals, peace communication camps, environmental forums and traveling photo exhibits.
