Grab Philippines solidifies social-impact agenda
Grab Philippines strengthens its GrabForGood social-impact agenda in the education sector with the launch of GrabScholar — a three-pronged scholarship program facilitated with online human-skills school BagoSphere. GrabScholar covers full-time college scholarships in partnership with PHINMA Education, bursary support for educational requirements, and a career acceleration program for aspiring business process outsourcing professionals with BagoSphere.
GrabScholar ladders up to Grab’s broader GrabForGood agenda which is geared at creating a positive impact on local communities through Grab’s technology and platform. Grab Philippines has launched other social-impact projects like its basic digital literacy program with Microsoft for driver-partners, and financial literacy program with the International Finance Corporation for small businesses.
Aimed at helping democratize access to educational opportunities here in the Philippines, GrabScholar will be supporting six full-time college students with four-year merit-based scholarships; 300 elementary and high school students with a one-time bursary for school supplies, books, and uniforms; and more than 150 adults with the Ateneo Center for Educational Development-BagoSphere BPO Fellowship Program.
