CSR & Sustainability

ABC champions from across the Aboitiz Group took a trip to Gawad Kalinga's GK Enchanted Farm to learn from and be inspired by the social enterprise models that are helping our local farmers create wealth in the countryside.


Enchanted trip to a better future

“The planned tour around the farm was a memorable one. Every step taken was a step towards understanding human compassion — of how the vision and action of the farm’s founders led to a community of equally compassionate individuals, whose social enterprises not only benefit their own families and the program itself but as well as that of the communities where they operate.”

Last October 15, Aboitiz unveiled an artist's perspective of the Balabag Wetland Park (Boracay Wetland No. 4) development project with Sec. Roy Cimatu (DENR), Sec. Eduardo Año (DILG,) DENR-BMB representatives, and LGU officials.

Building a future from livelihood starter kits

At the core of every successful community is a group of people working hand-in-hand towards a single vision. This is how one would describe the members of two Ozamiz-based organizations, Unity Association and Clarin National High School Family Multipurpose Cooperative, who found new livelihood opportunities at Pilmico’s Mahalin Pagkaing Atin Food, Agri, and Livelihood Expo last June at their city.
