We also strive to maximize our commitment to community developmentthrough engaging our employees.
Some initiatives which Fuji Xerox Philippines is currently supporting are:
- Gawad Kalinga (since 2012)
- Fuji Xerox in Action: Workbook for Filipino children (since 2014)
- Adopt-A-Water Body (since 2015)
In January 2007, Fuji Xerox Philippines employees worked together to build houses for the poorest of the poor located in Taguig, Manila. Having partnered with Gawad Kalinga and the local government of Taguig, the employees worked during Saturdays and transformed into masons, painters, carpenters, and helpers. The project allowed employees to share their time and talent with the marginalized members of society. Fuji Xerox Philippines volunteer employees are truly a model of responsible corporate citizenship
The houses were completed and formally turned over to the beneficiaries in simple ceremonies in December 2007. It comprises 30 homes and a two –story multipurpose hall. The first floor serves as a daycare center, while the second floor is utilized as a computer training facility. One parent, Medy Austria, notes that she can now leave her children at the daycare center in the morning and work on her needlecraft. Above all, Medy is happy that her children can now attend school. Before, many families could not afford the cost of textbooks; therefore, their children were deprived of an all-important education.
The multipurpose hall is also open to local residents and other nearby GK Villages. Local volunteers regularly visit the facility to teach children how to use the computers. Companies that support other GK Villages in the same area donated the computers. Many children learning at the hall exclaim enthusiastically that they want to work using computers in the future. The multipurpose hall has truly become a hub where children can pursue their dreams and aspirations.
Today, life is much better for the local residents. Previously, they were always under pressure of being evicted since they built their shanties on the city’s property without permission. They were virtually isolated from surrounding neighborhoods and had to tolerate an environment rampant with violent crime and drunken street fights. Now, the scene is quite different with the establishment of the Fuji Xerox GK Village.
Taking Social Contributions to the Next Level
Providing ICT Education to GK Residents
A second phase of the project is now in place at the Fuji Xerox Gawad Kalinga Village to help enable the residents to channel their talents, time and potential into productive activities. This in turn will provide a source of livelihood and, in the long-term, build their self-esteem and self-worth.
Fuji Xerox Philippine (FXP) has opened Educational Centre inside the Fuji Xerox Gawad Kalinga Village, to foster social and economic independence of residents. The center is offering opportunities for ICT education. Based on Virtual Hollywood Platform (VHP) concept, FXP and FX’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) worked together to open the center in June this year. FX sent PCs it is no longer using to the Philippines as equipment, while an NGO is providing the educational content of the program. We are pleased to introduce the members of FXP and FX who have taken a new step toward solving the problems facing the region
Fuji Xerox in Action: Workbook for Filipino Children
As a socially responsible corporate citizen, through the Fuji Xerox Foundation of the Philippines and various business partners, Fuji Xerox Philippines, Inc. embarked on a project providing English & Math Workbooks to Filipino children. The workbooks were designed to help resolve educational disparity among these children who have limited access to education, aiming to improve lives in disadvantaged communities.
As of Sept 2016, we have distributed a total of 4,440 workbooks. With a target reach of 30,000 children in the Philippines over a period of 10 years, our journey has just begun. To express your interest or seek further information please contact our CSR Team c/o Ms. Beng Collantes (Beng.Collantes@phl.fujixerox.com or Tel #8785200)
Past & Present Project Activities in the Philippines
This project was initially launched in the Philippines in 2014. Fuji Xerox Philippines started the activity by distributing workbooks to 442 children in the suburbs of Manila in partnership with a local NGO, Gawad Kalinga. The workbooks were created using materials offered by Gakken Holdings Co., Ltd. In 2015, we checked how the workbooks distributed in 2014 (Workbook 1: English) had been utilized, and then distributed the next workbook (Workbook 2: Arithmetic) to children who had completed the learning of Workbook 1.
This year, FXP extended the workbook distribution to the beneficiaries/children in two other cities thru our implementing NGO partner, Gawad Kalinga. A total of 1,388 workbooks (English & Math 1) was distributed this year. This time, some of our business partners/customers share our goals and joined the projects as financial sponsors. Note 3
On its 3rd year doing 'Fuji Xerox in Action: Workbook for Filipino Children' project, FXP continuously partnered with NGO Gawad Kalinga by distributing 1,100 English Workbook to the children of its communities located in the rural areas of Davao, Mindanao Region of the Philippines.
On August 16, 2016, FXP signed a Memorandum of Agreement appointing its new NGO partner, CFC/ANCOP Cornerstone. A month after the MOA signing, FXP distributed 1,510 English workbooks to CFC/ANCOP Cornerstone’s Elementary Program which aims to reach out to slow readers in elementary children in public schools through Reading Tutorials and Values Formation.
FXP participates in Adopt-a-Water Body Program
FXP participated in an environmental program lead by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR). The Adopt-a-Water Body Program is a collaborative undertaking between and among communities along creeks and rivers, concerned local government units, private sector and the DENR to achieve a cleaner, safer and healthier environment.
On September 17, 2016, around 26 volunteers from FXP & family members, and 60+ volunteers from Barangay Pinagsama teamed up to clean up and beautify Pinagsama Creek in Taguig City. Close to 300 meters of the creek’s wall were painted while other volunteers cleaned the surrounding areas and the creek. It was a fulfilling experience for everyone.
