Asian School of Development & Crosscultural Studies

ASDECS aims to build the capacities of our practitioner-students on practical transformational development ministries. We equip the field/community workers and leaders of various communities and civil society organizations on fundamental competencies essential in facilitating societal transformation in their target communities. We do research and document best practices in community transformation ministries mainly in the Philippines and broadly in the rest of Asia for model building and shared learning. Our values include « rooted in Asian spirituality and cultures, » transformational & holistic paradigms, communal and culture-sensitive approaches, experiential and participatory methodology, mobile and flexible adult education learning. Our degrees are accredited by the International Council for Higher Education (ICHE).
