Greeting from Executive Director

Salt Philippines Timothy Alconga

Hello everyone, and welcome to our website! I’m Tim, the Executive Director of Salt Payatas Foundation Philippines, Inc.

I’ve learned that there is no such thing as a “self-made man” – all our accomplishments are the results of learning, experiences or impact of different people in our lives. I’ve been blessed with relative success in my career so far, partly due to a good education – which I received due to a scholarship from the country’s top private university.

Another reason people succeed is the indirect support we receive. My father grew up in an orphanage that was financially supported by a global NPO; every child received accommodation, meals, and education up to high school. My father then sought scholarships to further his college and graduate studies, and was met with success in the religious and academic sectors, and has always made it a point to help when given the opportunity.

Growing up, I’ve witnessed first-hand how help can go beyond the person receiving it – the help can be passed on and paid forward. I joined Salt Payatas Foundation in hopes of not just helping our beneficiaries through managing projects and programs, but also to find like-minded people to partner with us and help support our community.

We are a non-profit organization that focuses on community empowerment – through livelihood programs for mothers and educational support for children. Feel free to look around our website and take a look at the work we do. We hope you would consider partnering with us in supporting our community partners.

If you have any questions or are interested in supporting our cause, kindly send me a message at timothy.alconga@saltpayatas.com.

Salt Japan Hiroyuki Inoue

Hello, everyone. My name is Hiroyuki, and I am the Executive Director of the Salt Payatas Japan Corporation.

My first visit to the Payatas was when I participated in a study tour of Salt Payatas during my sophomore year in college.I still vividly remember the first time I saw a mountain of trash and the people picking up trash from it. At that time, I made up my mind that I wanted to do something to eliminate the number of people suffering from poverty in the world. However, I never imagined that I would be the executive director of the very organization that I joined for the tour.

I come from a single parent household, and my mother raised me by herself. My mother always said, “I will support you in whatever you want to do.” Since then, I decided I wanted to support the poverty-stricken people in the Philippines in their dreams and help them achieve their dreams.
