Ianne Aquino

@ YMCA Albay, Philippines

Ianne is the General Secretary of YMCA in Albay, Philippines. A graduate of Civil Engineering who decided to pursue a career in the development field instead, Ianne has been pivotal in the revival of a dormant YMCA, which was dilapidated for more than 20 years. Using an ‘out of the box’ mindset and an ‘imagineering’ strategy, she will share how she transformed and rebuilt YMCA in her city as an established organization with functional facilities, notable programs, organized groups and social enterprises, as well as helped thousands of people to rebuild their lives and reconstruct their community through YMCA.
