The Philippine office of the International Labor Organization (ILO) was proclaimed winner of the Earth Camp Photo Contest in Japan via a virtual awarding ceremony on Jan. 31.

The contest gathered photos from around the world that capture scenes of international cooperation. 

ILO Philippines was recognized for its submission, which features the ILO-Japan Water and Sanitation Project, in South Upi, Maguindanao. The representative of ILO Japan accepted the award on behalf of ILO Philippines during the ceremony. 

ILO Philippines country director Khalid Hassan says the photo depicts a message of hope as communities now have their water system amid the COVID-19, poverty, climate change, and conflict. “It shows how decent work can contribute to fulfill basic human rights in fragile communities and build peace.”

According to Hassan, the project hired community members as contractors and provided skills training.
