Panasonic scholarship for nation building

Panasonic scholarship for nation building

Amid the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, PMPC continues to offer the Panasonic Scholarship Asia (PSA) in the Philippines.
The said program is one of the expressions of the Company’s commitment to contribute to society’s progress through the development of human resources. Panasonic provides scholarship opportunities to deserving students from low-income families, who wish to pursue higher education.
In the Philippines, Panasonic Scholarship is administered by Panasonic Manufacturing Philippines Corporation and offers financial assistance to promising students, who have difficulty receiving higher education particularly for economic reasons, but highly motivated to contribute to the country’s progress and development.  The 1st virtual awarding ceremony program ever administered by PMPC was held in 2020 and followed the same format in 2021 for the carefully selected students from different state universities, who truly exhibited exemplary qualities during the elimination rounds, including ability, determination, initiative, and above all, excellence.

PMPC has been regularly conducting the Panasonic Global Eco Learning Programs in various locations in the Philippines reaching out to thousands of school children (and their respective teachers) yearly. Discussing topics such as the "Causes and Effects of Global Warming" as well as the available environmental technologies to help in mitigating global warming's harmful effects to Mother Earth, PMPC staff enthusiastically promoted environmental awareness and education. The said activities also served as venues in promoting and implementing Panasonic's "Eco Picture Diary" contests.

Sharing resources to victims of natural calamities

Sharing resources to victims of natural calamities

PMPC continuously shares its resources also to victims of natural calamities.  In 2020 alone, the series of typhoons that entered the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR), which was punctuated by Typhoon Ulysses caused loss of many lives and extensive damages to infrastructure and properties.  And as responsible entity of society, in December 2020, PMPC once again responded to the appeals for relief.  This time, PMPC decided to provide washing machine units to evacuation centers in some of the areas mostly devastated by the said typhoon through their respective local government and social welfare and development offices.
PMPC also responded to the appeals for relief from communities affected by the eruption of Taal Volcano. Product donations were coursed through the local government, while cash donation was coursed through the Department of Social Welfare and Development.

Munting Handog Laking Tuwa ang Dulot Munting Handog Laking Tuwa ang Dulot

Munting Handog Laking Tuwa ang Dulot

The "Munting Handog, Laking Tuwa ang Dulot" (Lit. A Modest Gift, Brings Great Joy) project being held annually is truly a unique activity as it promotes not only volunteerism among employees but also the spirit of the ancestral trait of "bayanihan." "Bayanihan" is a Filipino word from the word "bayan" meaning town, nation, or community in general, and is thus used to refer to a spirit of communal unity and cooperation. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, the amount generated from the pledges of employees through the said project was matched by PMPC to help children and youth, who were victims of earthquake in Mindanao. 

Tree planting commitment

Since its incipience, PMPC has been conducting tree planting activities as part of its mission to contribute to society.  Trees are indeed essentials in the various efforts to reduce the impact of carbon emissions (trees take carbon dioxide from the atmosphere for their own growth and energy) as well as to restore natural ecosystems. Thus, one of PMPC’s regular endeavors is the and holding of tree planting program, wherein seedlings are being sown by PMPC employees in areas that need reforestation.  Likewise, whenever the Company celebrates a milestone or a special corporate event, PMPC sees to it that a “tree planting ceremony” is included in the program.
