The 2012 award reads "for its exemplary passion and unparalleled support in providing child and youth centered-based Disaster Risk Reduction and Management programs and services thereby helping the children and their families to cope with the effects of disasters while contributing significantly to the empowerment of the Bicolanos for the development of a safe and well-prepared community during crisis situations."

In addition to the Hall of Fame Award and the "Best Civil Society Organization on Humanitarian Assistance for 2012," Agency Director Mr. Pio Salvador received special recognition for his "invaluable contribution in the field of disaster risk reduction and management."

Over the years, Children International has implemented various disaster recovery efforts in the typhoon-prone country, ranging from relief operations, the provision of "child-friendly spaces" inside evacuation centers, disaster-preparedness training, and drills to providing permanent housing for families who were forced to resettle after their houses were buried under mudslides.

The Gawad KALASAG awards are the country's premier annual awards for outstanding contribution in the fields of disaster risk reduction and management and humanitarian action. It is the principal mechanism by which the national Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council advances awareness of the best practices of DRRM and humanitarian response and assistance.
