The Metrobank Foundation, Inc. (MBFI), the corporate social responsibility arm of the Metropolitan Bank & Trust Company (Metrobank), recognized its development partners during its 35th anniversary celebration last January 29 with the presentation of the Partners in Empowerment, Advocacy and Commitment to Excellence (PEACE) at the Le Pavillon, Metropolitan Park, Pasay City. His Eminence Luis Antonio G. Cardinal Tagle graced the occasion as the Guest of Honor which was also attended by guests from the national and local government, academe, business, diplomatic, non-government and socio-civic organizations.

One of this yearís recipients is the Alalay sa Kaunlaran, Inc. (ASKI), represented by its executive director Rolando B. Victoria. ASKI is the implementing partner of the MetroGold Financial Education and Microfinance programs for 400 Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) in Singapore and 400 family members in the Philippines. To date, 322 OFWs have graduated from the program under the Financial Education, Basic Entrepreneurship, and Personality Development modules. This partnership recently won the distinguished Financial Inclusion Award by London-based magazine The Banker wherein Metrobank, through MBFI, was the lone global recipient.

The theme of the celebration is Launching Dreams. Through its recognition and social development programs, Metrobank Foundation has continuously strengthened, support, and assist the Filipinos in their endeavors, raising their abilities and way of life, inspiring and uplifting their spirits so that they may be empowered enough to reach their dreams. The theme used kites, an object symbolically representing flight towards greater heights.

Aside from its excellence awards programs, Metrobank Foundation, considered one of the leading corporate foundations in the country, has been engaged in various social development initiatives in education, visual arts, health care, journalism, and calamity assistance in the last 35 years. Through its Grants Programs, the Foundation has emphasized the importance of partnerships in development projects to make them more relevant and sustainable for human development and nation-building.
