Switotwins Inc runs as a profit-based enterprise with a social mission. Switotwins provides services to improve professional, business and organizational development and lift social impact in communities.
Switotwins, Inc has grown into a creative social innovation hub holding various programs. We now aim to become the accelerator of other social business ideas that are related to art and technology:
Swito Digital Storytelling and Peacebuilding workshop for survivors of armed conflict in Koronadal City. The workshops have been turned into modules replicated by other organizations that also advocate peace and conflict resolution. We have created a premier digital storytelling venue for people to express themselves using multimedia and this program has been commissioned by several institutions who advocate digital literacy, child participation and psychosocial recovery using art.
Balud Books fulfils dreams and empowers Filipino families from poor communities in developing baranngay of Mindanao by guiding them into becoming professional artisans of our locally produced products like books, zines, journals, bags, writing instruments, reading accessories, dedicated to our "balud" identity or ‘whatever the wave carries to our shore’.
Swito Architectural Designs program uses a holistic approach in imparting people-centered design, educating communities with design standards, promoting sustainable and eco-conscious designs and methods, and ultimately building with a heart.
BalayBalay 3D Architecture partners with design experts into to create our very own toy puzzles of Filipino Architectural Landmarks, Traditional Houses, and Vernacular Architecture made for adults and children. We felt that it’s high time for our fellow Filipinos to embrace our local culture through Architecture and thus harness our nationalism this way.
Balud Art Network program is an artist residency project. Part of the aim of this project is also to gather funds to put talented local artists into a scholarship program in order to bring the same opportunity to individuals from the marginalized sector of our country.
