Message from Mr. Andrew Joseph Horrocks, Chairman and President of AES Philippines Foundation for the launching of AES Philippines Foundation and inauguration of AES Mobile Health Clinic on January 24, 2013:

I am happy to announce that today we are officially launching the AES Philippines Foundation. As an organization, this is a testament to our solid commitment to social development and nation building. As a team, I believe this is something we can all be truly proud of – reaching out to indigent communities that are in need not just of material support, but more importantly, empowerment that enables them to have a brighter future.

As the Foundation’s Vision is to be the “trusted partner in developing vibrant, model communities effecting positive change and improving people’s lives”, we have focused on four major flagship areas on which the Foundation’s programs are anchored on. These are Health, Education, Livelihood, and Environment.

As everyone knows, we launched the Masinloc Training Facility (MTF) early last year and it has already produced 34 skilled and TESDA certified graduates, one of them already employed at the Masinloc Facility while some have found employment opportunities within the region. The MTF is currently conducting sessions for the second batch of trainees. Through the MTF, we are able to expand opportunities for out-of-school youth members of the communities as well as the unemployed.

Alongside the launch of the Foundation today, we are also inaugurating the AES Mobile Health Clinic. Through the Mobile Clinic, we are able to provide easier access to basic health services to these indigent communities who are in need of such support. It is worth noting that access to such health facility significantly bridges the huge gap in terms of obtaining the needed assistance that will improve people’s health and welfare.

Moving forward, our goal is to also launch flagship programs for Education and Environment, on top of those that we are already running. With this, we hope to spark hope among the youth and encourage better care for the environment.

By giving importance to such endeavors, we are able to take an active role in energizing people’s lives in a way that is beyond business.
