Philippine Action for Community-led Shelter Initiatives, Inc (PACSII) grew out of a church based organisation called the Vincentian Missionaries Social Development Foundation, Inc.  In 1992, this organisation supported the first community savings groups in an area called Payatas in Manila.  These groups have since encouraged and assisted groups in other parts of the city and country to mobilise around issues of land and housing.  The groups make up the Homeless People’s Federation of the Philippines, Inc (HPFPI), which today incorporates over 85,000 people in 200 communities in 14 cities and towns throughout the Philippines. PACSII has also set up a network of architects and technical services, the Technical Assistance Movement for People and Environment, Inc. (TAMPEI), which is assisting PACSII in developing its projects
