With its commitment to contribute to empowering underprivileged Filipino youth through education, HARI Foundaton Inc. (HFI), the corporate social responsibility arm of Hyundai Asia Resources Inc. (HARI), has turned over a generous cash donation to its newest partner, the Sisters of Mary School.
“Through this donation, we reaffirm HFI’s advocacy for education as the most effective and long-term way of empowering our youth. But this is not just a one-off CSR campaign, HARI Foundation partnered with the Sisters of Mary School Girlstown and Boystown because of the excellent voc-tech training that they receive in high school. Once they graduate, we can further hone the skills of their best students who wish to undergo the automotive training courses that we offer at Hyundai Dream Centre-Philippines,” said Ma. Fe Perez-Agudo, president, HFI.
Hyundai Dream Centre Philippines (HDCP) is a world-class training and education hub built to provide underprivileged but talented young people the highest caliber of training and education in automotive technology. HDCP graduates now count to 80 that are currently employed as technicians and service professionals at Hyundai dealerships in the country.
Currently, there are two graduates from Sisters of Mary Boystown Cavite already in training in Course 2 at HDCP. With the partnership, HFI intents to increase the number of Sisters of Mary School graduates to its succeeding batches of scholars.
“This education to employment program fulfills our aim to give dignified careers to our youth. Unlike other programs that stop at graduation, we strive to bring these skilled technicians to our growing number of Passenger Car (PC) and Commercial Vehicle (CV) dealerships. This is, in turn, benefits our customers who deserve world-class quality services,” added Agudo.
