H.A.R.I. Foundation, Inc., the CSR arm of Hyundai Asia Resources, Inc. (HARI) closes 2020 on an inspiring note with Hyundai Dream Center Philippines (HDCP) hailed “Outstanding CSR Program in Education” at the virtual awards ceremony of the 2020 League of Corporate Foundations (LCF) CSR Guild Awards.

This new and first-time citation from the LCF came at the heels of HDCP receiving the highest honors, the Platinum for Education, at the Driven to Serve Awards of the Society of Philippine Motor Journalists (SPMJ) last November.

The LCF CSR Guild Awards is a recognition program of outstanding social good initiatives of the country’s premier business organizations in the areas of education, arts and culture, enterprise development, environment, and health.

Hyundai Dream Centre-Philippines passed the scrutiny of the LCF’s 96 member organizations for its meaningful and sustainable impact on the communities and institutions that it serves.

“Hyundai Dream Centre Philippines embodies H.A.R.I. Foundation’s core advocacy for education–the education of bright young people who do not have the resources, but who have the capacity and the drive for a better shot at life. With this new and first-time citation from the LCF, we know that we are on the right track: For as we uplift lives, it will be easier for people to look beyond their basic needs, aim for higher goals, and take charge of their lives. Thank you for the inspiration and the renewed push for us to carry on,” HFI President Ma. Fe Perez-Agudo said.

The HDCP, launched on April 10, 2018 in Calamba City, Laguna, is a world-class automotive training and education hub established by HARI in partnership with Hyundai Motor Company (HMC) and humanitarian organization Plan International.

It is the fifth Dream Centre that HMC has set up in the Asia-African region since 2013. HARI is the first Hyundai distributor to be tapped to craft Dream Centre training programs that respond to local industry needs. HDCP scholars are referrals from Hyundai dealerships and Plan International program areas (Mindoro, Masbate, Cebu, Samar, Leyte, Cotabato, and Maguindanao). Its training programs are made up of three TESDA-certified training courses. Since its launch, HDCP has produced 174 graduates from 4 batches, 87% of whom are employed as automotive technicians, service advisors, and warranty officers at Hyundai dealerships across the country.

John Batten, Senior Adviser and International Outreach and International Development Consultant of the International Institute for Rural Reconstruction, and a member of this year’s LCF panel of judges, noted that this year’s winners stood out from among equally innovative social projects for demonstrating strong performance in long-term sustainability, employee involvement, and collaboration with NGOs and government institutions in order to scale and achieve the widest social impact.
