Our Philippines business is helping fund the respected local community organisation Bahay Tuluyan to aid at least 50,000 children through a new community “hub” for education, research and advocacy.
Consistent with our new corporate responsibility framework, the community facility will help provide education opportunities for children accessing Bahay Tuluyan’s services. The venue will enable local children and youth to learn, develop and improve a range of essential life skills including literacy, numeracy and computer skills.
The long term objective is for this training to lead to employment opportunities and the establishment of microenterprises, offering livelihoods for individuals and a means for the centre to be self-sustaining.
Bahay Tuluyan is a non-profit organisation working with children in need of special protection in the Philippines. It is currently providing alternative education and social services in Manila, Laguna and Quezon.
