Foundever™ shows its commitment in making education inclusive and accessible to every Filipino by raising 8,400 books via its Big MAX Book Drive for the Library Renewal Partnership (LRP), a non-profit organization that aims to provide communities with a safe space where people can come together to learn, find livelihood, and support those in need.
The donated books, a mix of fiction and non-fiction covering a wide variety of topics, will benefit 100,000 learners in areas that include NCR, Baguio, Naga, and Puerto Princesa.
“Through our CSR Big MAX Book Drive, we help enable Filipinos to dream and empower them to pursue it,” Foundever™ Senior Manager for HR Organization Development Hiroki Revereza says.
“It’s very important for us to give our employees a platform to achieve their personal goals while living out a higher purpose of bettering society. That’s what it means to be in Foundever™.”
Revereza added that the initiative also aims to create a reading culture in their organization and make their employees a force multiplier when it comes to providing value to customers and helping communities thrive.
Launched in 2009, the LRP creates various kinds of libraries anyone, regardless of their income level, gender, or religion, can use for free. The organization puts up mobile libraries, town libraries, and prison libraries, among others, depending on what the community needs.
“I’m very happy that the books Foundever™ donated will go to communities that need them the most, including the Bangsamoro autonomous region of Muslim Mindanao, Tawi-Tawi, Basilan, and areas of conflict. The initiative will also help develop the country’s next managers and leaders,” Library Renewal Partnership founder Quintin Pastrana says.
“Foundever™ is not just focused on its growth but also on creating solutions for communities. We hope the 8,000 books is just the tip of the iceberg. We’re thankful to the company for making knowledge empower more Filipinos.”
