One of the new community involvement activities of Esquire Financing Inc. for its CSR program is partnering with Habitat for Humanity for its Juan Brigade Program. Habitat for Humanity Philippines is an NGO that serves Filipino families in need of decent homes. Habitat brings together partners who share the same vision of transforming lives through building responsible and sustainable communities.
EFI participated in its Juan Brigade in Brgy. Pinagbuhatan, Pasig where 20 volunteers painted the houses of former informal settlers in Pasig. Habitat for Humanity introduces its sweat equity – where activities are shared by its beneficiaries. In this case, the house owners painted their houses along with the volunteers.
“These activities were a tool in the development of the community; serving the home partner families by providing a healthy and sustainable environment,” as stated by Charlito Ayco, Habitat for Humanity Philippines’ CEO and Managing Director.
