Chevron Philippines Inc. manifests its dedication to enabling human progress through its annual Volunteer Week, this year celebrating women and livelihood empowerment, education and career appreciation, and coastal sustainability.
Now on its 12th year, Chevron encourages its employees and business partners to volunteer their time and energy to work for the improvement of the communities where they operate, focusing on projects that positively impact the women, youth, marginalized sector and environment.
More than 300 Chevron employees, contractors, suppliers, Caltex retailers and other Chevron business units volunteered to help the less fortunate ones.
Mothers Leading the Move Forward
Chevron Philippines Inc. commenced Volunteer Week 2019 with “Project MOVE,” an initiative aimed at empowering mothers by equipping them with the skills needed to start a sustainable business as a form of livelihood.
Employee volunteers from Caltex Makati Credit Cooperative (CMCC), together with 12 mothers from Barangay San Isidro, Makati participated in a basic meat processing workshop by Negoskwela, a leading livelihood and technology training center in the Philippines that produces globally competitive Filipino professionals and volunteers.
The donated equipment will also serve to continue helping the migrant youth of Don Bosco Pugad run their bakery, located within the Don Bosco Makati compound.
