The PHINMA Foundation, Inc. (PFI) on Friday, June 23, celebrated 34 years of making life better by announcing a new partner school in their scholarship program and the formal launch of the disaster fund of the PHINMA Group.
The PFI signed a memorandum of agreement with the Technological University of the Philippines – Manila, represented by its president, Engr. Reynaldo P. Ramos, PhD., EnP, and Dr. Margaret S. Aquino, the dean of the Office of Student Affairs, to announce the new partnership between the two institutions. This year, the PHINMA Foundation welcomes TUP-Manila students as it reaffirms its commitment to provide better opportunities to more Filipinos. This will increase the intake of students this year to 70.
“Through this assistance, our college students who need a regular allowance can pursue their dreams of becoming engineers. I am sure that PHINMA’s generosity will return to them a hundredfold as the beneficiaries become instruments of social change, progress, and development,” said TUP-Manila President Ramos.
The PHINMA National Scholarship Program has produced over 250 licensed teachers, engineers, and accountants with 4 partner schools since 2006: University of the Philippines, Philippine Normal University, Polytechnic University of the
Philippines, and PHINMA University of Pangasinan. The schools signed during the ceremony a memorandum of agreement to continue their partnership with the PHINMA Foundation.
TUP-Manila will also benefit from the expansion of the PHINMA Foundation’s Science and Engineering Education Fund (SEEF), together with the Caloocan National Science and Technology High School. SEEF provides support to high school students from reputed institutions and engineering students from universities recognized as Centers of Excellence.
SEEF’s reach extends to nine universities, including the Cebu Institute of Technology The University of the Philippines, Xavier University, Ateneo de Cagayan, and University of the Philippines. The program also supports 11 high schools, including GUSA Regional Science High School, Manila Science High School, Muntinlupa Science High School, Caloocan National Science High School, Cagayan Valley Campus, PSHS Central Mindanao Campus and PSHS Central Visayas PSHS Eastern Visayas Campus , PSHS Southern Mindanao Campus, PSHS Western Visayas Campus, and PSHS Ilocos Region Campus.
Through strategic partnerships with these institutions, SEEF aims to enhance learning experiences, provide financial assistance, and foster a culture of scientific inquiry and innovation among students.
The PHINMA Foundation also activated the newly established 1PHINMA Disaster Fund, starting with the signing of a memorandum of agreement with representatives of the PHINMA Construction Materials Group, PHINMA Education, PHINMA Properties, and PHINMA Hospitality for the prepositioning of relief goods. , which will empower them to lead disaster preparedness and response within their respective communities. Among the prepositions are food, hygiene items, medicine, modular tents, and blankets for more than 240 families.
The 1PHINMA Disaster Fund was established earlier this year as the PHINMA Group responded to the need for a long-term disaster response by combining the efforts of all business units and mobilizing them to help when disasters occur.
“PHINMA’s presence in many communities across the country not only allows us to serve them with our products and services; We also know these communities thoroughly and we are able to identify their needs. With the 1PHINMA Disaster Fund, we will be better equipped to help quickly and adequately when disasters occur,” said PHINMA Foundation Vice President Peter V. Perfecto.
