Yayasan Cinta Anak Bangsa (YCAB Foundation) has yet again achieved a remarkable milestone by moving up in the prestigious global rankings. We are thrilled to announce that YCAB Foundation now holds the 28th position in the esteemed World TOP 200 SGO (Social Good Organizations) list, as published by TheDotGood. TheDotGood’s Top 200 world listing represents the highest level of people-centered governance and holistic innovation in the social good sector, embodying the criteria for achieving social profit. The sector has evolved beyond traditional charity-focused and faith-based organizations, with the emergence of social enterprises and social impact outlets leading to the term ‘Social Good Sphere’ to accurately describe the diverse and rapidly changing landscape of organizations working for the betterment of society. This commendable achievement highlights YCAB’s unwavering commitment to breaking generational poverty through education and economic empowerment.
Since its establishment in 1999, YCAB Foundation has remained steadfast in its mission to uplift the lives of mothers and youths, equipping them with the tools and opportunities they need to thrive. Our holistic approach, coupled with a strong focus on innovation, has propelled us to the forefront of the social good sphere. As we approach our 24th anniversary in August, we celebrate the impact we have made on over 5 million individuals, empowering them to break free from the shackles of poverty.
The recognition bestowed upon YCAB Foundation by TheDotGood is a testament to our people-centered governance, innovative programs, and transformative impact. The evaluation criteria for the World TOP 200 SGO rankings encompass three fundamental pillars: impact, innovation, and governance. YCAB Foundation’s dedication to creating tangible change in the lives of beneficiaries, our ability to overcome obstacles through creative solutions, and our commitment to positive mission implementation have all contributed to our continued success.
Veronica Colondam, the CEO and Founder of YCAB Foundation, expressed her elation at this achievement, saying, “We are delighted and immensely proud to receive this esteemed recognition. It is an evidence to the dedication and unwavering commitment of the entire YCAB Foundation team in breaking generational poverty. This achievement strengthens our resolve to continue empowering mothers and youths, transforming lives, and creating a more equitable society for all. With gratitude and optimism, we embark on the next chapter of our journey, guided by our core values of love and service.”
While the world is facing unprecedented challenges, YCAB Foundation remains committed to addressing social issues and driving positive change. As a social enterprise, we understand the importance of sustainability and self-reliance. Over the years, we have expanded our reach and impact by investing in several other social businesses that operate as portfolio companies under YCAB Ventures. This shared services strategy, along with the creation of a revolving fund, enables YCAB Foundation to support the longevity of our programs and further our social mission.
As we look to the future with great enthusiasm, YCAB Foundation will continue to innovate and adapt to ensure our programs effectively address the challenges faced by the communities we serve. We remain committed to breaking the cycle of poverty, changing lives, and creating a brighter future for all.
