Welcome to
the Adversity Archive.

Our vision

The Adversity Archive is an online publication and youth organization based in the Philippines, on a mission to give the unheard and the unseen a voice. By bringing stories of adversity to the forefront, we are able to magnify the urgency of our people's plight. As it is both poverty, and a lack of support that limits the dreams and potential of our people, we exist to empower our countrymen, and fuel our readers to take action.

Our mission

We seek to tell stories that bridge our readers with different communities in hopes of making the realities of different Filipinos known to all.

We work towards a future where every Filipino, regardless of socioeconomic status, is equipped with the courage, support, and opportunity to pursue their biggest dreams and reach their full potential.
