GABC partners with Efren Penaflorida's Dynamic Teen Company

The Dynamic Teen Company and 2009 CNN Hero of the Year, Efren Penaflorida
Last Saturday, a group of bloggers was invited to experience "Kariton Klasrum” (pushcart education), a literacy and hygiene program for unschooled children being conducted by The Dynamic Teen Company (DTC), a local NGO in Cavite headed by 2009 CNN Hero of the Year Efren Penaflorida.

This activity is also in line with  the recent partnership of DTC and GOLDEN ABC (GABC), the country’s  fashion pioneer and owner of leading local brands Penshoppe, Oxygen, ForMe, Memo and Regatta as part of their 25th anniversary and their corporate social responsibility campaign called "GET UP".

With this CSR platform, GABC pledged to assist in  providing knowledge to underprivileged children in barangay Caridad, an urban poor community in Cavite City.

“GABC believes that there are many who are inspired by Efren’s work and can be active agents of change in our  country,” said Bernie Liu,  CEO & President of GOLDEN ABC. 

GABC and its volunteers from different  sectors are  helping  Penaflorida in teaching  the underprivileged basic reading, writing, arithmetic, hygiene, character building values and  educating them to make  a difference in their lives.

“While Efren himself has been a valuable resource person and inspiration, GABC continues to make a difference by promoting the values of passion, volunteerism and teamwork towards making a positive change,” Liu added.

Since 1997, “Kariton Klarum” has made a difference and has helped thousands of underprivileged in slum areas who have no access to education, basic hygiene and sometimes, even love from their families. Today, the group holds different activities to address these issues.

Over the past two decades, GABC has been actively involved in various foundations that further the cause of people development. It has branded its corporate social responsibility platform as “GET UP”. The company’s advocacies each fall under a category such as support for education, environment, community building, and arts & culture.
