AIDFI wins two Asia Pacific Social Innovation Partnership Awards

Our CEO and COO returned today from Taiwan after attending the Asia Pacific Social Innovation Partnership Award (APSIPA) which is a regional award advised by the Executive Yuan, Taiwan (R.O.C.) and held by the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Taiwan (R.O.C.). It was established to explore dynamic social innovation models in the Asia Pacific and to motivate more change-makers to contribute to social innovation, aiming to discover and celebrate social innovation partnerships that connect diverse stakeholders and make significant social impacts.

The APSIPA was held during the 3 day Asia Pacific Social Innovation Summit (APSIS) held in Puli Township, Nantou from May 3 to 5. The APSIS was first initiated in 2018 and has since been one of the significant summits on advocating social entrepreneurs.

AIDFI got two awards: The Social Prosperity Award which focuses on social innovation initiatives relevant to fundamental dignity in human society and the Special Jury Prize which was chosen by the judging panel to honor the worthiest case of the year and the theme of the Special Jury Prize for 2024 was “Harmony”.

Our CEO then presented AIDFI's case on the 3rd day of the summit and also featured the miniature ram pump during the event. Visits to social enterprises in Nantou and Taipei were also facilitated by KPMG Taiwan including a visit to the Social Innovation Lab in Taipei. Our CEO and COO learned about how the government of Taiwan stimulates and links social enterprises through different programs established that help reinvigorate communities. It also included a visit to a cultural and historic center where they learned about the historical preservation of the old city and how the community plays a role in creating liveable places.

They were also interviewed for the Impact Boom podcast from Australia which features this year's winners.

AIDFI would like to thank the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Taiwan (R.O.C.), the Social Innovation Consulting team from KPMG Taiwan, and the sponsors who made this year's event possible and the opportunity to learn, explore possibilities, and meet like-minded social innovators. We look forward to future collaborations.
