In line with its mission to make lives better, PHINMA is committed to providing opportunities for its employees to join in nation-building. PHINMA does this through the volunteer program, PHINMA HERO, which seeks to inspire, equip, and mobilize employees to make life better through volunteering and giving.
The PHINMA HERO is the employee engagement program of PHINMA since 2008 that was started with the vision of PHINMA founder Ambassador Ramon V. Del Rosario of a company-wide platform to encourage the sharing of time and talent for different advocacies.
Going beyond the once-a-year project, PHINMA HERO offers volunteer opportunities that cater to different advocacies with company-led CSR programs or through schools, nonprofit institutions, and adopted beneficiaries.
The Big Brother/Big Sister (BBBS) program is a joint effort of PNS and PHINMA Hero, wherein employee and PNS alumni volunteers provide mentoring to PHINMA scholars. The volunteers, called Big Brother/Big Sister, act as the mentors of the scholars, serving as eyes and ears of the PNS team. They closely monitor the academic and extra-curricular activities of the students, including any updates on their personal lives and well-being.
Brigada Eskwela (BE) is a Department of Education initiative to rehabilitate public schools facilities in preparation for the new school year. Every year, PHINMA employee volunteers, PNS scholars, and PHINMA Education students join Brigada Eskwela to paint, clean and repair public schools.
1PHINMA Reaches Out (1PRO) is a nation-wide and month long event (during PHINMA’s Anniversary Month!) that provides employees with the opportunity to help a specific community in need. This includes bloodletting, reforestation, mangrove planting, and river cleanups.
