Message from the

Chairman & President
This fiscal year marked the start of our 5-year strategic plan effective until 2019. We consistently implemented
programs in the hope that we can make our vision of self-reliant communities a reality. As we close this fiscal year,
it is time to look at what we have accomplished during the period.
ECOLOGICAL ENHANCEMENT. The protection of our natural environment remains to be one of our main priorities
as we continuously roll out initiatives to sustain our remaining ecological resources to preserve it for future
generations.
Because of our experience in watershed protection, we gained the trust of the USAID for the implementation of our
new project titled, “Defending and Protecting the Amburayan River through Good Governance and Active People’s
Organization Participation”. Funded through our NGO partner Gerry Roxas Foundation, the project capitalizes
on collaborative multi-stakeholder efforts to improve the condition of the river. This lead to the organization of
the Amburayan River Council composed of the local government unit (LGU), indigenous people’s organizations,
the business sector, government agencies and academe from three provinces and twelve municipalities in the
Cordillera Administrative and Ilocos Region. They formalized their commitment to the project and underwent
various capacity building activities to ensure these goals are attained in the next few years.
For the Saving Mount Purgatory project, we conducted activities that focused on an information, education
and communication (IEC) campaign and, capacity building activities during the period. The ecotourism and
forest management plan was also drafted and is currently being reviewed by the Bokod municipal council. Once
approved, the plan will become the basis for all implementing actions, strategies and ecotourism guidelines for
Mount Purgatory. Ecotourism is sought as the key preserving Mount Purgatory’s biodiversity.
We continued to serve the communities in Zambales province with the Building the Capacities of AES Philippines
Foundation Communities on Sustainable Water System Management project. More than the aim to make water
reach every household is to create awareness among community members on the importance of watershed
protection. The construction of a level 2 intake tank from the water source to communal tap stand in Barangay
Pinagrealan, Candelaria was completed this year.
ENTERPRISE DEVELOPMENT. Anchored on the principle of “helping people help themselves,” JVOFI’s microfinance
program allows communities to have access to economic resources so they could enhance their income-generating
activities. We continued to offer loans, savings and microinsurance services to enterprising women who desire to
improve the quality of their life, thus promoting economic development.
This year, we partnered with the Melbourne Microfinance Initiative (MMI) for the possible fulfillment of our
expansion to more rural areas in Benguet and La Union. The partnership will cover the development of a due
diligence report to determine potential investment opportunities within the areas as well as the development
and implementation of a formal recruitment and training program for new JVOFI loan officers. MMI is a student
society guided by experts that strives to achieve significant social impact within the University of Melbourne and
the global community

through the promotion of microfinance.
As of June 2015, the cumulative amount of loans released by the Foundation since the start of its microfinance
program in 2001 was Php 522,036, 249 and its repayment rate was 99.94%. The year end loan portfolio was at Php
17,570,321 with repayment rate of 99.87% and past due accounts PAR rate of 2.37%. Active clients totalled 1,852
and borrowers 1,541 during the period.
JVOFI uses the Progress out of Poverty Index (PPI) to measure the social impact of its microfinance program.
This internationally accepted tool used in the microfinance industry suggests poverty likelihood based on ten
(10) indicators: the number of household members and children below 15 years old attending school; the type
of house, cooking fuel, and toilet facility; and the assets owned. A PPI score of zero means that a household
is extremely poor. PPI scores of 572 client respondents for the years 2013 and 2014 showed that 41.43% had
improved PPI scores; while 42.83% clients had decreased PPI scores and, 15.73% had the same PPI scores. The
increased PPI scores was due to an increase in assets while decreased PPI scores among clients was mostly due to
the increase in the household members between the ages of 0-14 years.
SPECIAL PROJECTS. JVOFI continued to implement PMFTC’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programs with
a more active partnership since 2008. With PMFTC providing overall direction and the Foundation translating
these into programs and projects, the company approved nine proposals prepared by the Foundation with a total
grant of Php 59.91M during the fiscal year.
The CSR programs primarily aimed to promote development in the communities where the company operates
particularly in the areas of health, education, environment and livelihood through charitable and non-charitable
projects. It also covered activities that entailed capacitating communities on disaster preparedness and, raising
awareness against child labor.
During the recently concluded 2015 International Business Awards (IBA), PMFTC’s Program for the Poor (PFP),
Community Management Fund (CMF) and Child and Community-Based Interventions to Eliminate Child Labor in
Tobacco (C2C) received the Bronze Stevie Award for the Best Corporate Social Responsibility Programs of the Year
category in Asia, Australia and New Zealand. In addition, the Child Labor Prevention and Improving the Lives of
PMFTC farmers in the Ilocos Region and Occidental Mindoro (ALP) project received the Bronze Stevie Award for
Health, Safety & Environment Program of the Year category in Asia, Australia and New Zealand. The awards further
motivated us to become more dedicated to our mandate.
NEXT DIRECTION. Next year, we will be implementing new projects that will further broaden the horizons of our
experience. We are delighted that the World Food Programme (WFP) partnered with JVOFI for another phase of
the previously implemented project entitled “Capacity Building Support to the Government of the Philippines on
Disaster Preparedness and Response.” This project will allow communities in Benguet to become disaster resilient
since it is the second most disaster prone province in the Philippines.
The Philippine Tropical Forest Conservation Foundation (PTFCF) also approved our proposal for the third year
implementation of the Saving Mount Purgatory Project, allowing us to further ensure that protection and
conservation efforts will be sustained by our partners in Bokod municipality.
On the other hand, a new program will be added as one of PMFTC’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) programs
-- the BRIDGE Scholarship. The project aims to provide financial assistance to poor but deserving students who are
willing to pursue agriculture-related courses in response to the declining workforce and demand of professionals
in the sector.
Undeniably, we have again accomplished a lot but we gratefully acknowledge that behind every success are our
donors and partners with their unwavering support. We recognize them for having entrusted to us their projects
which propelled us to achieve excellence in everything that we could. We hope that we will continue to join forces
in responding to the calls of our communities towards desirable change!
As we approach our 35th founding anniversary, we remain focused on our goals with enthusiasm and vigor. The
next year will be a celebration of another milestone, a result of our relentless efforts towards ensuring a legacy of
sustainability for future generations.
We close the fiscal year by reminding ourselves of that mission set forth by our founder, Jaime Velayo Ongpin who
aptly said, “If we pull together as a nation, our dream of prosperity and dignity for every Filipino can be fulfilled.”

ECOLOGICAL ENHANCEMENT
Defending and Protecting the Amburayan River through Good Governance and
Active People’s Organization Participation. The Amburayan River flows through
three Philippine provinces, namely: Benguet, La Union and Ilocos Sur. It is a source of
life for it irrigates the farmers‘ fields and serves as home to various aquatic resources
like fresh-water fishes, shrimps and algae. Its protection is, thus, vital for sustaining the
needs of future generations.
One project goal is to designate the river as a Water Quality Management Area
(WQMA). This is a strategy to ensure protection of the river by setting in place a
management structure and having a common plan for the river. First, it entailed a study
in 2015 to determine the current state of the river as a springboard for identifying,
through a participatory process, the appropriate measures for protecting it.
After the signing of the Project Partnership Agreement by the 87 partners, water
sampling within the river tributaries was done over a 10-month period starting May
2015 to February 2016. The collected water samples will be analyzed for chemical and
mineral contents. In addition, Community Engagement Tree Planting Activities resulted
in the plantation of 13,150 tree seedlings. When fully-grown, these seedlings will help
replenish the water that flows to Amburayan River and prevent soil erosion.

Saving Mount Purgatory. The Saving Mount Purgatory Project was implemented
by the Jaime V. Ongpin Foundation with the support of the Philippine Tropical Forest
Conservation Foundation Inc. (PTFCF). The project aimed to strengthen capacities
on forest governance and ecotourism for a sustained protection, management, and
conservation of the Mount Purgatory Ecotourism Area.
Mount Pulag is popularly known as the gateway to Mount Pulag, the second
highest mountain in the Philippines. The site is classified as a mossy forest and a
breathtaking view of the Benguet Mountains can be seen from its peak. Various
species of flora and fauna still thrive on Mount Purgatory’s chilly atmosphere.
Ecotourism is considered the best strategy to sustain the site’s natural wonder.
For the community and visitors to understand the relationship between
their culture and their natural resources, various information, education, and
communication (IEC) campaigns and, capacity building activities were conducted.
This included the distribution of coffee table books and fliers; installation of peak
signages and biodiversity profiles within identified boundaries of Mount Purgatory;
conduct of slogan making contest; and conduct of trainings on basic life support,
mountain search and rescue, paralegal, and exposure to organic farming and
homestay practices.
With the forged partnership with the Bokod Local Government, a municipal
ordinance was adopted imposing the collection of fees for the site.

Building the Capacities of AESPF Communities on Sustainable Water System
Management. Water as a basic commodity should be made available in every
household. However, not all communities have access to abundant water supply and
suffer from distressful effects of water shortage.
AES Philippines Foundation Inc. (APPFI) partnered with JVOFI for improving the
quality of life among communities through the provision of community-based water
systems.
With the desire of the community members to end their plight on water issues, the
successful construction of the intake tank in Barangay Pinagraelan in Zambales was the
result of their collective efforts when they did most of the manual labor.
As narrated by Flynn Ayugat, JVOFI GIS and Visibility Officer, “the men carried steel
pipes and bags of cement, crossing rushing rivers and steep hills to reach the site. The
women formed lines and passed stones that would make up the walls of the infrastructure
and the children helped in any small way they could .”

The activity is part of a series of tree planting
activities hosted by JVOFI which aims to
plant at least 13,000 trees every year for three
years in the provinces of Benguet, Ilocos Sur

to reforest Amburayan River’s watersheds,
stabilize its riverbanks, filter pollutants and
reduce flood hazards.

Almost 1,000 trees were planted near the

WATER FOR ALL:
Empowering Communities
in Managing Rural Water
Systems
- Flynn S. Ayugat

In many rural areas of Candelaria,
Zambales, water is a luxury. Families
who can afford drinking water spend 400
to 500 pesos every month buying from
small purifying stations. This is a heavy
expense for the underprivileged majority
in Barangay Pinagrealan and Lauis
whose incomes are heavily dependent on
seasonal work. Many have no choice but
to subsist on the limited tap water which a
resident describes as yellowish and dirty.

of tobacco contracted farmers and farm
workers, 328 of whom served as respondents
of the survey. They were enrolled in forty-two
schools covering Ilocos, La Union, Misamis
Oriental and Occidental Mindoro.
The survey generally aimed to determine the
influence of the implemented projects to the
involvement of children in tobacco farming.
It included questions that will particularly
ask them of the lessons learned and their
willingness to participate in tobacco farming.

Results showed that 294 or 94% of the
children said that they stopped doing tobacco-

related farm activities after attending the
activities of ALP 1 and C2C Summer
School. The remaining respondents however
admitted that they remained doing the same
farm activities.
In addition, most of the respondents said
that they are now being discouraged by
their parents to do tobacco farming tasks.
Meanwhile, part of other PMFTC projects is
the conduct of dialogues and communication
campaigns among tobacco farmers for them
to become aware of the anti-child labor
campaign.

History
The Jaime V. Ongpin Foundation, Inc. was established on 17 December
1980 as the corporate social arm of the Benguet Corporation. Originally
called the Benguet Corp Foundation, its creation was inspired by the late
Jaime V. Ongpin, the company’s first Filipino president, who envisioned the
development of self-reliant communities.
The Foundation was initially tasked to attend to the needs of dependents
of company employees which were not directly related to the Company’s
business but nonetheless equally important to maintaining a productive
workforce. The Foundation’s mandate later extended to the neighboring
communities to enable them to transform into self-reliant communities that
would continue to thrive even when the company’s mines cease to operate.
Mr. Ongpin joined the Benguet Corporation in 1962 and became president
in 1974. He is credited with introducing corporate social responsibility as
a major concern from top management down to the ranks. This was later
institutionalized when he formed the Foundation in 1980. He joined the
cabinet of President Corazon Aquino in 1986 as the Minister of Finance. He

later returned to private life and a few months after his death in 1987, the
Benguet Corp Foundation was renamed in his honor.
The Foundation became financially independent from the Company in
1997 and operates in partnership with local and foreign donors, business,
government agencies, other NGOs and people’s organizations. JVOFI is a
non-stock, non-profit organization duly registered with the Securities and
Exchange Commission. It is a certified donee institution until 2017 by the
Philippine Council for NGO Certification and the Bureau of Internal Revenue.
The Foundation adopts a Strategic Area Management Approach. The
