We expect challenges and see empowering Filipinos as a long and winding journey. While prepared for crises, the COVID-19 pandemic that the country continues to struggle with has been an immense hurdle. Pilipinas Shell Foundation, Inc. (PSFI) continues to work with its partner communities, adapting to ever-shifting needs. As we move closer to the target year of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, we will continue to make strategic plans to contribute to the Philippines’ sustainable development. Ultimately, all our efforts lead towards helping move the #FilipinoForward.

PSFI’S 2021-2025 STRATEGY:
INPUT TO IMPACT

We are called to adapt to rapidly changing times. The ongoing pandemic has proven to be one of the most challenging crises the country has faced. It emphasized the need for better systems and strategies across all sectors and industries. For PSFI, this has been an opportunity for us to review and improve our delivery across our six thematic areas and target SDGs.

Since PSFI’s inception, the goal has always been for our host communities to become self-reliant. Our 2021-2025 Strategy is a more focused approach on contributing to the six thematic areas by operating in key locations where we can make the greatest impact. Our programs consist of those that: 1) meet current basic needs, 2) invest for future needs, and 3) secure needs now into the future. These are backed by supporting functions, so our programs realize their full potential.
