WE CO-CREATE SAFE, EMPOWERED AND SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITIES
In everything we do, we in the Aboitiz Foundation stay true to our promise of Advancing Business and Communities (ABC) by co-creating safe, empowered, and sustainable communities. From our beginnings in 1988 to today, this commitment has been guiding us and our CSR teams across the Aboitiz Group in continuously helping communities live more inspiring and empowering stories.
Anchored on our core values of integrity, teamwork, innovation, and responsibility, we move forward in implementing scaled up CSR projects that to date, have uplifted the lives of 160,864 beneficiaries.
As we move beyond our 30th year, we further innovate our processes, systems, and technologies to create long-term value for all our stakeholders. Our strategic transition from corporate philanthropy to ABC has been changing the way CSR projects are developed and implemented across the Group.
Collaborations that drive change for a better world
We implement the Integrated CSR (iCSR), our localized, needs and resource-based approach to social development, which encourages our stakeholders, led by our Regional CSR Councils, to share and complement resources and expertise to deliver a mix of interventions on education, enterprise development, and environment.
As the driver of this integration process, we lead the groupwide effort in implementing UNITED for Communities, banner advocacy that promotes greater collaboration to improve project development and implementation.
UNITED for Communities is championed through the following iCSR programs:
Unwanted to Profitable
Goal: Rehabilitating the environment through sustainable waste management
New Income and Livelihood
Goal: Reducing poverty through sustainable livelihood
Innovations from the Youth
Goal: Empowering future leaders
Towards Disaster Resilience
Goal: Building disaster resilient communities and schools
Education that Empowers
Goal: Bridging education to employment
Drills to Save the Environment
Goal: Promoting responsible actions to combat climate change
The power of kindness in advancing communities
Aligned with the Aboitiz Group’s digital transformation journey, we constantly seek ways to use technology for social good. In 2018, we launched KINDer by Aboitiz, an innovative crowdfunding platform that empowers civil society organizations towards gathering donors and advancing their respective social causes. KINDer by Aboitiz offers a more convenient way of donating to various causes and connecting those who want to help with social organizations who need help.
From creating awareness on KINDer as a platform to support various social causes that speak to our hearts, we advocate a collective effort towards social progress and build #KinderEveryday ambassadors.
Building a #WeatherWiser Nation
We also work hand-in-hand with the Aboitiz Group’s WeatherPhilippines Foundation and Weather Solutions in building a #WeatherWiser Philippines.
This enables us to move further in our efforts towards disaster resilience, preparing schools and communities for potential disaster and severe weather conditions. Our partnership also highlights our support in the provision of accurate, localized, and timely weather information that informs effective decision-making and expands our network of partners.
