Since its inception in 1982, Pilipinas Shell Foundation, Inc. (PSFI) has touched over 15 million Filipinos through our various programs. 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 PSFl’s inception, the goal has always been for our host communities to become self-reliant.
Our 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.

In order to make a significant contribution to the country’s sustainable development, we strive to reach as many Filipinos in as many communities as we can. Understanding the number of individuals, families, communities and institutions we’ve been able to support through our programs is critical to knowing the scale of our contribution,
During the height of the outbreak, we quickly joined in the country’s efforts to mitigate the effects of the pandemic.
