GAVA is a crowdfunding platform piloted in the Philippines, enabling others that they may dare to dream, wish, hope, build, create, and live, because we at Gava believe in the power of giving together. With our convenient service, multiple payment methods, and transparent platform, giving together is made easier.
Previously, Gava focused on gift campaigns - serving couples, celebrants and charities by enabling them to create their own campaign page, use our share tools to raise funds from anyone and receive those in multiple ways. Now, Gava has expanded, enabling anyone to create campaigns for anything - their wishes, hopes, dreams, passion and life.
In this screen age where younger generation are completely mobile and social, Gava aims to cultivate the virtue of generosity and make it a lifestyle. The vision of the team is for Gava to be top of mind when it comes to celebration of life and helping more people help more people. We dream that someday, through our platform, giving will be part of every land, every culture and every age, because we believe that generosity is never about the amount, it's all about the heart.

System Architecture and Security. I monitor DDoS attacks, emergency database rollbacks and faulty transaction handlings.
I see programming as a form of art, but you know: not all artists are the same. As with painters, there are many programmers who only replicate things, never coming up with something original.

Content & Design
As the content manager associate, I'm challenged to make visual designs for both print and web, manage Gava's social media, and act as an editor for written content. "Creating" and "Telling a story" are both things I love doing, and with design being a form of communication, the two melt together well.
My job is to keep the company going by building and strengthening relationships with our clients, partners and with foundations. As someone who's adaptable and usually very cheery, connecting with people comes naturally!
Business Dev Manager
Brand Development Manager; Handles Events & Marketing and looks after GAVA valued partners; my personal goal is to purposefully help & impact as much people as possible with the talent I've been given and enhance my skills for community development. There's nothing that I have that I did not receive, so I guess it's just right to pay back, give back. ;)
