    At 9:30 am, the Vice President attended the Asian Forum on Enterprise for Society (AFES) 2018 in Pasay City. AFES 2018 focused on what the future will look like and the powerful difference that corporate responsibility, good governance, social innovation, and greatness of spirit can make. It was originally called Asian Forum on Corporate Social Responsibility (AFCSR) and has been rebranded this year to expound the conversation. The AFCSR, founded in Manila in 2002, is Asia’s leading platform for thought leadership on corporate responsibility and social innovation.

    In her speech, the Vice President talked about how humans are becoming more advanced in technology but despite all these efforts, many are still left behind by such developments. “If I were to re-imagine a future so full of exciting innovations, I propose this: that we must think of humans, especially those who are poor and marginalized, in every decision that we make—big or small. Because if you think about it, not all the wealth in this world, and not all the tech, can save our world from the boiling wrath of the masses that have been left behind by progress.”

    At 5:00 pm, the Vice President signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Bato Balani Foundation, Inc. (BBFI) in Quezon City Reception House. This formalized their partnership on education advocacy under the Angat Buhay program. BBFI is a non-stock, non-profit organization engaged in the conceptualization and implementation of education development programs. The cooperation under the MOU aims to give school-age children both in school and out of school the access to learning opportunities. The BBFI will determine possible education development programs that are based on the needs of selected Angat Buhay communities. The Office of the Vice President will assist in coordinating with the communities through their respective local government units during the process of formulating and implementing the education development programs of BBFI.
