- Vision and Mission: UPLINK envisions a city for all where economic, social and cultural diversity is a source of richness and strength, and the poor can live a dignified life and uphold their basic rights including rights to determine the future of their selves and their community. The mission of UPLINK is grassroots empowerment through advocacy, organizing, and networking. Advocacy is aimed at influencing and changing public policies that detriment the practical and strategic interests of the urban poor. Organizing, in this case, is put into practice through programs that address the economy (daily saving, income generating activities), health (acupressure, traditional herbal medication), and rights to information (community radio, resource centre). The aim of networking is twofold: first, to develop strong local and national federation of organized urban poor groups; and second, to develop support and solidarity for the urban poor from other social groups such as the media, professionals, scholars, and others.
