BAYANI celebrates unsung heroes

“The award is inspired by our very own Bayani product line that helps individuals to start a small business and ultimately provide means to support their families. We are hopeful that with Tunay na Bayani Award, we will be able to inspire more Filipinos to spread positivity and initiate goodwill. Now more than ever, we need these kinds of people who will show selfless dedication to the welfare of their countrymen and our nation as a whole.” ~Prudencio Garcia, Mekeni President

BAYANI celebrates unsung heroes

The COVID-19 pandemic put most of us in many ups and downs. It also made us realize the importance of many facets of life, including living a grateful and compassionate life.

Apart from frontliners like healthcare workers, security guards, delivery personnel among others, there are also people who made the choice to rise above the challenge and pay it forward to the community.

These are the people that Mekeni Food Corporation would like to recognize in their recently launched program, Tunay na Bayani Award.

Inspired by the grit, talent, and skills of Pinoy micropreneurs, Tunay na Bayani Award aims to recognize a new breed of exemplary Filipinos who had contributed to the development of the community in their own little way.

Garcia added that they would like Tunay na Bayani Award to serve as a catalyst for change, a motivation to normal Filipinos to strive for more and continue to uplift their livelihood and life in their community.

Tunay na Bayani is not only a celebration for unsung heroes but also Mekeni’s way of giving back to individuals who are effecting positive change in the community. It is open to those who have shown selfless and admirable acts – big or small – within and beyond their community.

Ayala Foundation Wins Three Quill Awards

The social development arm of the Ayala Group won an Award of Excellence for its 2018 annual report The Future of History, and two awards of merit for the Maging Magiting program and Brigada ng Ayala program. Ayala Foundation will continue to support advocacies directed towards key areas such as education, youth leadership, community development, sustainable livelihood, arts, and culture.

Ayala Foundation Wins Three Quill Awards

Given by IABC Philippines, the Quill Awards honor outstanding efforts in business communication in the country. 

Ayala Foundation won an Award of Excellence for its 2018 annual report The Future of History, and two awards of merit for the Maging Magiting program and Brigada ng Aya-la program.

The 2018 annual report highlighted how the foundation continued to stay true to its commitment to improving lives, through programs that enabled communities where people are productive, creative, self-reliant, and proud to be Filipino. The theme The Future of History emphasized how the foundation merges traditional and innovative processes and practices to make an impact in the lives of its program communities. This merging of old and new was best expressed by the cover image, which depicts the Ayala Museum’s Dioramas of Philippine History and efforts to make them accessible through virtual reality. 

Ayala Foundation Wins Three Quill Awards

The Maging Magiting program, meanwhile, is a program that advocates love of country by honoring the extraordinary heroism of ordinary Filipinos, and by promoting appreciation and respect for our national symbols. In 2019, the Maging Magiting program dis-tributed more than 10,000 flags to all 17 regions of the country, reaching as far north as Batanes and as far south as Tawi-Tawi. Maging Magiting is implemented in partnership with the National Historical Commission of the Philippines, the Department of Education, and Chooks-to-Go.

Brigada ng Ayala is the Ayala group’s conglomerate-wide response to DepEd’s Brigada Eskwela program. In 2019, Ayala Foundation worked closely with the Ayala group to field Ayala citizens to public schools nationwide, serving as volunteers who would help clean, repair, and decorate classrooms in preparation for the opening of classes. During the year—which coincided with Ayala Corporation’s 185th anniversary—Brigada ng Ayala reached 190 schools and fielded 7,400 volunteers, generating at least 172,000 volunteer hours.

Ayala Foundation is the social development arm of the Ayala group of companies, with programs in such key areas as education, community leadership, suitable and sustainable livelihood, and arts and culture.

The Apprentice: ONE Championship Edition' Sends Two Candidates Home In Action-Packed Second Episode

Martial arts legends Georges St-Pierre and Renzo Gracie lead daring physical challenge; Catcha Group Co-Founder & Group CEO Patrick Grove Advises In Boardroom.

The Apprentice: ONE Championship Edition' Sends Two Candidates Home In Action-Packed Second Episode

“The Apprentice: ONE Championship Edition" returned with another exciting episode on Monday, March 29, on One Sports.

The Apprentice: ONE Championship Edition' Sends Two Candidates Home In Action-Packed Second Episode

Martial arts legends Georges St-Pierre and Renzo Gracie appeared in the episode and participated in a difficult physical task with the candidates. Catcha Group Co-Founder and Group CEO Patrick Grove later joined ONE Championship Chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong and Advisor Niharika Singh in the boardroom.

The Apprentice: ONE Championship Edition' Sends Two Candidates Home In Action-Packed Second Episode

Physical Challenge: Fort Siloso Skywalk on Sentosa Island

For the physical challenge, candidates had to rappel down an 11-story structure and quickly climb back up via rope ladder. The team with the shortest combined time from all candidates would earn a victory celebration at Bar Square and receive an advantage in the next business challenge.

St-Pierre and Gracie surprised the cast by performing the task first, and Task Captain Dom Lau briefed the group shortly afterward.

Candidates from both teams experienced difficulty rappelling down the skywalk and struggled to maneuver their way up the dangling ladder. Japanese candidate Sho Takei struggled with his fear of heights but ultimately willed himself through the challenge.

Despite Sho's tough time, his teammates pulled through, and Team Valor captured the victory behind a strong group effort.

The Apprentice: ONE Championship Edition' Sends Two Candidates Home In Action-Packed Second Episode

Business Challenge: Seven-Day Social Media Campaign

Teams had to create an engaging seven-day social media campaign, choosing between influencers Yumika Hoskin and Justin Bratton to promote Andaz Singapore's designer hotel experience. Because Team Valor won the physical challenge, the group had first pick.

With Filipino candidate Louie Sangalang as Project Manager for Team Valor, the unit mostly worked together in harmony while preventing Clinton Tudor from disrupting the productivity. Meanwhile, Eugene Chung's inexperience as a leader for Team Conquest resulted in a disorganized mess.

Both teams delivered solid presentations, but it quickly became clear which side had created the more robust campaign.

The Pitches

With ONE’s Siyodtong, Singh, and Catcha Group’s Grove examining every aspect of both marketing plans, the atmosphere was intense.

Sho, Kexin Ye, and Monica Millington led the presentation for Team Valor, impressing Sityodtong by combining analytics with creative ideas. However, Grove pointed out the lack of a clear seven-day plan, which the challenge required.

In contrast, Niraj Puran Rao and Paulina Purnomowati presented a clear plan for Team Conquest, but the campaign was bland and unoriginal. Singh criticized Alvin Ang for not contributing to his team enough and Roman Wilson for his PowerPoint design flaws.

With vastly different approaches, both teams headed to the boardroom.

The Apprentice: ONE Championship Edition' Sends Two Candidates Home In Action-Packed Second Episode

The Boardroom: Double-Elimination

Team Valor once again emerged victorious in the business challenge. Sityodtong credited the win to a superior concept and praised Millington's ability to build brand identity. Conversely, the ONE Championship CEO sent Ang, Chung, and Wilson from Team Conquest to the chopping block.

Chung delivered a passionate speech about changing his life and the inspiration he took from Sityodtong's own rags-to-riches life story, which moved the ONE CEO.

That kept Chung on the show, but Wilson's passiveness and Ang's lack of contribution saw both of them eliminated from the competition.

“The Apprentice” is one of the biggest non-scripted reality television programs in history, judging the business skills of candidates who are competing for a job offer under a high-profile CEO. It has aired in more than 120 countries. The first season of “The Apprentice: ONE Championship Edition" consists of 13 episodes and will be seen in the Philippines on Thursdays, 8:50 pm on AXN cable network, and on Mondays at 9 p.m. on One Sport.

RAFI and GCash team up for 'virtual to actual' tree-planting in the Visayas

“RAFI is committed to our environmental thrust of ‘greening’ the Philippines through this partnership.  The use of green technology is the way to go in supporting the country’s environmental sustainability efforts, one tree at a time, through our program and we are proud to partner with GCash in this GCash Forest campaign.” ~Ms. Riella Mae Guiogio, President and CEO of RAFI

GCash has forged a partnership with the Ramon Aboitiz Foundation Inc. (RAFI) to help protect forest lands in the Visayas through GCash Forest.

Through this team-up, GCash users will be able to earn ‘green energy’ points by doing everyday actions that reduce carbon consumption in the real world. More importantly, you get to participate in the campaign by adopting a tree by earning energy points by frequently using the app.

GCash, the leading mobile wallet in the Philippines, has forged a partnership with the Ramon Aboitiz Foundation Inc. (RAFI) to help protect forest lands in the Visayas through GCash Forest, an initiative that started in 2018 and has since drawn the attention of users to environmental issues facing the country while promoting digital transactions through the mobile wallet app.

GCash and RAFI are both committed to supporting sustainable development in a balanced and integrated manner, with climate change as a primary concern since it affects the entire world and has a direct impact on the environment and biodiversity. 

Both GCash and RAFI believe that this situation can be reversed if appropriate approaches and strategies are implemented in a collaborative and collective manner.  The partnership will support environmentally conscious and civic-minded communities genuinely concerned for the environment.

RAFI, through its One to Tree Program Unit which encourages communities to help protect and rehabilitate the environment, is involved in establishing native tree nurseries and tree plantations in the Province of Cebu. 

“We are very happy to welcome RAFI as our distinguished partner for GCash Forest. This is a very important partnership as it helps us act on the eminent environmental concern of deforestation. With the help of RAFI and our GCash Forest supporters, we aim to continue utilizing the technology to promote reforestation of vital forest lands in the Visayas and in critical areas across the Philippines as well,” said Martha Sazon, President and CEO of GCash.

Through the partnership, GCash users will be able to earn ‘green energy’ points by doing everyday actions that reduce carbon consumption in the real world. This includes activities like using personal tumblers in partner cafes and opting for reusable utensils when ordering food for delivery. 

More importantly, they get to participate in the campaign by adopting a tree by earning energy points by frequently using the GCash app for your everyday transactions such as bank transfers, buying load, paying bills, sending money, and by simply walking. Once enough energy points are acquired, users can then select a tree through the app. A myriad of native trees are offered through the app and all users need to do is acquire the needed energy points to be able to pick a tree to adopt.

If you earn 8,520 energy points, you can get avocado as your adoptive tree, while narra can be yours when you receive a total of 9,411 energy points. Molave, meanwhile, can be planted in your name when you earn 8,410 points and jackfruit can be your own tree when you acquire 6,305 energy points.

Other native trees that you will be able to adopt are guyabano (6,890 energy points) and mamalis (7,324 energy points). These trees can be adopted on your own or with other GCash Forest users. Once a tree is selected for adoption, it will get planted by the RAFI team at either Ipo Dam or Cebu.

Forests, which are an integral part of our ecosystem, are crucial in protecting watersheds, regulating water supply, and providing natural habitat to a number of species, in order to help mitigate climate change.  RAFI has been working hard to make this happen for their adopted forests in the Visayas specifically in the province of Cebu.

With over 33 million GCash users in the country, RAFI believes in the positive impact this new app feature could bring in the protection and restoration of the Cebu forests through sustainability initiatives like this. Both partners are positive everyone can work together to make a more sustainable future a possibility.

For more information on this eco-conscious initiative and a complete list of actions, GCash users can take to earn green energy points, visit
