Manulife partners with 3 NGOs for social development programs 

MANULIFE Philippines has partnered with three non-government organizations for its corporate social responsibility initiatives focusing on health and well-being, inclusive economic opportunity, and environmental sustainability. 

Manulife, a subsidiary of international financial services provider Manulife, signed contracts on Wednesday with Gawad Kalinga, the Corazon Sanchez Atayde Foundation (CSAMF), and Haribon Foundation. 

“We have partnered with three NGOs that are aligned with our values and have the knowledge, expertise, experience, and track record to effect positive change,” Manulife Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Melissa Henson said.  

“By collaborating with these organizations, we are confident that we can maximize engagement with our sustainability programs and make an impact on the communities that we serve.” 

The company will support Gawad Kalinga’s Goodbye Gutom program, helping 300 families in 30 locations across the country to grow their own food. They will also be working on the establishment of learning centers, where five Gawad Kalinga villages can have access to internet for virtual classes. 

With the CSAMF, Manulife is expanding their existing partnership for a financial counseling program to 1,200 students from an initial 100 two years ago. 

For nature conservation group Haribon Foundation, Manulife will provide support to its Forests for Life Movement, adopting 12 hectares of land in Laguna, Quezon and Rizal, where 15,000 native trees will be planted to improve soil quality and water retention. — Tobias Jared Tomas
