Leading telecommunications company Globe Telecom supported the Fiestang Kuliat of Angeles City by giving out livelihood grants to outstanding community enterprises.

Three recipients of the Globe BridgeCom Livelihood Grants were awarded P30,000 each on October 24.  They were judged according to financial viability (50 %); community benefit (25%); and business innovation (25%). 

“We hope that this grant, which is part of the Globe Enterprise Development Program, will be able to help in sustaining and expanding the community enterprises of Angeles City and ultimately help them achieve economic self-sufficiency,” said Yoly C. Crisanto, Globe Head of Corporate Communications.

Aside from the corporate social responsibility component, Globe also conducted a Youth Summit which included a Youth Empowerment Workshop with award-winning debater and TV personality Patricia Evangelista, outstanding educator and social worker Efren Penaflorida, and news reporter Atom Araullo as guest speakers.

There was also a photography workshop called “Angelenos Got Talent” which showcased the unique talents of the Angelenos, and a TM AstigFest concert which featured highly-popular rock band Parokya ni Edgar.

“Globe is honored to partner with the city government and community of Angeles City in celebrating the Fiestang Kuliat. This festival celebrates the endurance of the Filipino spirit and we hope that this activity will nurture the culture and entrepreneurial spirit of the Angelenos,” Crisanto said.

Fiestang Kuliat is a month long celebration of the city’s resilience since the place was devastated by the Mt. Pinatubo eruption in 1991. The activity is held in honor of its patron saint Blessed Virgin Mary of Rosary. Kuliat was the former name of the city.
