DIRECT is a community-based disaster management organization. It was established in 1988 to respond the heightening cases of both natural and human-made disasters in SOCSKSARGEN.
It was registered by the Securities and Exchange Commission as independent organization in August 1991 but was inactive in the years 2003-2005 resulting to cancellation of the registration in the later part of 2006.  It was registered again in the same name, mission, vision and goals and areas of coverage in May 24, 2007.
DIRECT’s relief and rehabilitation work is rooted on the belief that people themselves have the growing capacity to respond the difficulties and calamities they experienced and be able to cope from the impending hazards.
DIRECT is one of the regional centers of the Citizens’ Disaster Response Network (CDRN) and the Philippine Network on Food Security (PNSF).  We believe that our programs and services must be people-oriented and developmental in approach.
