Welcome to
the Adversity Archive.


Our mission

The Adversity Archive is an online publication and youth organization, committed to giving 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 and fuel our readers to take action. In doing so, we hope to empower our countrymen and reverse the notion that they are a forgotten sector of society. We seek to tell stories that bridge the marginalized with those who have the desire to learn about them and the ability to help.

Our vision

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

July-August's community:
The “Kayumanggi Kami!” Project

The Adversity Archive is partnering with the Alon & Araw Club to feature the stories of various children and families from a fisherfolk village in Barangay San Isidro Cabangan, Zambales. The partnership will shed light on the important advocacies and values of their community which are sports accessibility, environmental awareness, education, and youth empowerment.
