Strong Focus on Education
The Parent Company sustained its sponsorship of scholars in Palawan. So far, this program produced 63 graduates from the local government units (LGU) and indigenous people (IP). The program covers the full tuition fee and monthly stipends of the deserving students during the school term.
Our subsidiary, MacroAsia Catering (MACS), has continued its partnership with various schools and universities through the Student Tour Program. In this Program, its officers and selected employees provide lecture sessions on food handling and safety standards to the student visitors, including their teachers and representative school administration personnel. MACS also allows the visitors to actually observe the operations inside the facility to complete their appreciation of the catering standards. Since the start of the program in 2008, around 21,625 students all over the country had already participated in this tour and had seen our catering facility. The Program had become so popular that MACS had to book requests of schools and universities in advance. This undertaking have been contributory to the image of MacroAsia being widely known as a food services provider in the Philippines.
Our affiliate, Lufthansa Technik Philippines (LTP), also had its eyes on education-related programs. Through its dedicated CSR arm along with the direct involvement of its employees, LTP has completed and turned over 61 education-based projects to date. These projects include construction of school buildings, facilities, donations of school supplies and textbooks, and technology support. This 2015, LTP, in partnership with HELP Alliance had completed a construction of two (2) buildings in Tacloban City, Leyte consisting of two classrooms each and other facilities. The inauguration and handover was last June 5.
