The Foundation marked its 30

founding anniversary this year. We credit this milestone to our forebears who had the vision of developing self-reliant communities. Established by Benguet Corporation which was then headed by my late husband, Jaime V. Ongpin, we were imbued with the desire to be actively involved in social development. The context then was communities that depended on mining’s largesse were at risk of not being sustainable since the industry they depended on was extractive and had a definite life span.

This orientation prompted the Foundation to review its social welfare approach; define who its “community” was; and, take on more proactive strategies that would contribute to self-reliance. At the same time, we at the Foundation gradually undertook steps to ensure our own sustainability in the face of Benguet Corporation’s declining profitability in the 1990s and shifting donor preferences nationally and worldwide. The Foundation today is the sum of our choices in the past. Opportunities and challenges alike shaped our character, built our confidence for partnerships, and produced invaluable lessons to pass on. We owe our longevity to many people who journeyed with us – our Board whose strong civic conscience has ably guided the Foundation; our donors who have supported our mission; our partners in government, business who put in their stake; our NGO friends who have contributed to our skill and growth; and the communities who have been our reason for being. In behalf of the Board of Trustees, thank you for contributing to this milestone and we look forward to meeting the challenges ahead with you.

Jaime V. Ongpin Foundation, Inc. Timeline
Formation 1980-1985
1980. Benguetcorp Foundation, Inc. was founded by Benguet Corporation based on the principle that corporate responsibility encompasses a social dimension. 1981-1985. The major programs implemented were Education and Training, Community Development, and Social Services. The Foundation directly implemented these programs in coordination with the BC Personnel Department.



1986. The Foundation secured a grant from USAID for the Benguet Community Development Project enabling it to expand its services beyond the mining camps and decentralize its operations. 1987. The Foundation was renamed the Jaime V. Ongpin Foundation, Inc. (JVOFI) in honor of the former president of Benguet Corporation and Finance Minister of the President Corazon Aquino administration who initiated the creation of the Foundation.JVOFI began the Integrated Livelihood and Primary Health Care Program in partnership with the Department of Health. 1988-1989. JVOFI begun to be involved in protecting and conserving the environment. It helped implement the Marine Conservation Project for San Salvador Island which earned for the LGU of Masinloc, Zambales a GalingPook Award from the Ford Foundation and the national government. 1990-1993. JVOFI was involved in Mt. Pinatubo relief and rehabilitation activities covering 10 municipalities in Zambales, Tarlac and Nueva Ecija.



1994-1996. Four core programs were implemented using the Strategic Area Management Approach: Ecological Enhancement, Enterprise Development, Institution Building, and Internal Capacity Building. 1997-1998. The Foundation became financially independent from Benguet Corporation in 1997 as the company veered away from mining as its core business. Faced with dwindling donor funds, the Foundation pursued projects which incorporated cost-recovery mechanisms to ensure sustainability of operations. 1999-2000. Innovative development models were replicated in other areas in Baguio City. The Foundation focused its thrust on environmental protection with watershed rehabilitation. 2001-2003. Learning from previous years, the Foundation forged new partnerships with government, business and civil society as it pursued its programs on microfinance, watershed protection and solid waste management.

Maturity 2004-2010
2004-2005. With JVOFI’s chest of rich lessons, the Foundation institutionalized its development approach which is holistic, area focused and attuned to the demands of the times. Beginning 2004, JVOFI adopted the triple bottomline approach targeting three (3) pillars for development: the economic, the social, and the environmental. 2006-2010. As JVOFI matured, it was befitting for the Foundation to share its strategies and approaches to other communities in similar need. At the same time, it remained open to continuous learning brought forth by new partnerships with local governments, business and the non-profit sector in Benguet province and selected urban and rural areas in Regions 1 and 2. New needs prompted JVOFI to explore new projects that were consistent with its triple bottomline approach. Organic farming spearheaded by a group of local vegetable farmers surfaced as a viable strategy for putting control over prices to the farmers, for ultimately addressing poverty, and for contributing to environmental protection. On the Foundation’s end, it became an opportunity for it to also develop its expertise in rural microfinance. Vulnerability of the poor to climate change was highlighted by the devastating Typhoon Parma in 2009. Benguet province was among those worse hit and it was but natural for JVOFI to be called upon to help farmers restore their livelihoods.


The Jaime V. Onpin Foundation, Inc. implemented various projects to meet its goals. Despite the inevitable challenges, the
Foundation continually explored innovative ways to deliver and produce high quality outputs that received the nod of its donors. On Ecological Enhancement, the Foundation for a Sustainable Society (FSSI), through HEKS funding, organized the Typhoon Parma Agricultural Disaster Rehabilitation Support Program that gave zero-interest loans to the identified beneficiaries in 2009. A total of Php6,212,448.56 was released to 301 farm families from the municipalities of Atok, La Trinidad, Tublay, and Tuba. To further assist to the recovery of the affected farms, several capacity building projects were made to strengthen the managerial, organizational, and financial skills of the farmers. As reported previously, the Foundation supported organic farmers from the LaTop Multipurpose Cooperative. In August 2010, La Top was recognized as the first organic producers’ cooperative certified by the Organic Certification Center of the Philippines (OCCP), the first in Northern Luzon. The Microfinance project of the Enterprise Development Program of the Foundation had 1,812 clients as of June 2011. Total loans released of Php255,649,072 helped enterprising poor women in Baguio City and La Trinidad. With this, the program reported a 99.83% cumulative repayment rate as of June this year. The clients also practiced savings discipline that greatly helped them to cope with crises. In 2010, the CHATON (Capacity Building and Harnessing Animal dispersal To transform lives and Nurture the environment) Project funded by Heifer Phils, Inc. extended in Tadian, Mt. Province as the InLivesPro Project in Isabela showed great impact in the family of the beneficiaries. To date, four (4) Self-Help groups were identified and trained. These groups compose of one hundred (100) families were given livestock gifts to help them generate income in a sustainable way. PMFTC Inc. continued to support the Coop Organizing and Capacity Building for Tobacco Farmers in Regions 1 and 2. There were twelve (12) farmers’ organizations, or 856 farmer-members, formed in two regions participating in the Fuelwood and Bamboo Plantation Program. The farmers’ organizations managed and established their plantations in La Union, Ilocos Sur, Cagayan and Isabela. As a result, one hundred twelve (112) hectares of idle lands were reforested with 155,445 planted seedlings in 2010. During the year, PMFTC Inc. funded the Curing Barn Furnace Project for 350 tobacco farmers in La Union and Ilocos Sur. Through the project, farmers were able to save 0.5-1 cubic meter, or 14% – 33% of fuelwood amounting to Php600.00/hectare for every curing thus supporting efforts to protect the environment and help farmers improve their incomes. As the Foundation continues to face challenges to contribute to the betterment of its target communities, Jaime V. Ongpin Foundation, Inc. believes that with the collective power of individual strengths and efforts, enabling communities towards self-reliance is possible.

FSSI-HEKS Typhoon Parma Agricultural Disaster Rehabilitation Support Program


agricultural industry of Benguet Province was greatly affected by typhoon Parma in 2009. Massive landslides and erosions caused damage to farmlands and endangered the livelihood of the small agricultural producers in the area. Farming is the major livelihood source in Benguet Province thus, the Foundation for a Sustainable Society (FSSI), through HEKS funding, organized the Typhoon Parma Agricultural Disaster Rehabilitation Support Program that helped the farmers restore their loses. Through Jaime V. Ongpin Foundation, Inc. (JVOFI), selected farm families were given zero-interest loans for re-establishing their farms. Farm repair materials, seeds, fertilizers & compost were provided. Irrigation equipment such as tanks, pumps and water hose were also included.

The project assisted over 301 farm families from the municipalities of Atok, La Trinidad, Tublay, and Tuba, seven of whom availed loan reflows. These families were able to gradually recover from the damages they experienced. With this, farmer beneficiaries and their families expressed their gratitude to the Foundation and its partners as they undoubtedly avoided borrowing money at high interest to restore their farms.

FSSI-Capacity Building Project
ffected farm lands in the four municipalities of Benguet Province are usually remote and dispersed. Monitoring status of farmers as well as the result of the recovery may be difficult without the assistance of farmers’ organizations and the farmers’ councils. Many farmers lack a collective voice to access affordable inputs such as finance and technology. The Municipal/Barangay Agriculture and Fishery Development Councils (M/BAFCs) were created by the Municipal Agriculture Offices to facilitate monitoring at the farm level. They also conduct regular AFC meetings and consultations to identify opportunities available and identify and resolve local problems/issues at their respective levels. The Council constitutes primary farmers’ organizations, women farmers associations and government line agencies such as the Department of Agriculture (DA). The Municipal Agriculture Officers (MAOs) also provided assistance to improve the leadership potentials of the council members. The project aimed to strengthen managerial, organizational, and financial skills, through training and the provision of technical assistance, of the farmers in these areas. Trainings on monitoring, evaluation and disaster mitigations were conducted among officers/leaders. They also underwent sustainability trainings and workshops to ensure the continuity of the project.



The MAFCs and the BAFCs were equipped with the skills, attitude and the knowledge needed to carry out their functions as leaders in the community and as partners in development. The awareness level and the increasing number of organic farming practitioners are among the indicators of the progress. The presence of these leaders during trainings and meetings showed that they have the desire to learn. Despite financial difficulties, they still sacrificed some of their savings for their transportation going to the meeting and training venues. They said that it’s a sacrifice worth their time and effort.

Upscaling Organic Vegetable Production in Metro Baguio and Benguet Project

To promote the economic viability of organic farming as an
appropriate method, the Foundation for a Sustainable Society, Inc. (FSSI), in partnership with JVOFI, funded the Green Financing Project for La Trinidad Organic Practitioners Multi-Purpose Cooperative (La Top), being the model organic farm cooperative. To date, La Top farmers demonstrated the economic viability of organic farming with the increase in their income from an average of P3,859.11 per month to P5,385.66 per month per farmer. Their production also increased from 94kg to 104kg per month despite the absence of chemical-based pest control and soil supplements.With this, La Top farmers were able to show that income from organic farming is more stable and not affected by the consistent price changes in agricultural inputs. This project proved that organic farming offers opportunities for farmers to earn steady incomes due to lower cost of production. On the other hand, the green financing assistance offered an effective and simple microfinance support facility that specifically caters to the needs of organic farmers. The facility enabled farmers to expand their production areas, increase and sustain their production even during the rainy season. The facility also provided loans for composting sheds, shredders, and other essential farm tools. To date, a total of P2,756,799 loans were released to 90 farmers as loan assistance. The Green Financing loan fund of P525,000 from FSSI was able to finance a total of 5.25 loan cycles. The availability of the Green Financing Assistance facility encouraged many farmers in different municipalities of the province to shift to organic farming.
The following were also achieved: - Certification of La Top from the Organic Certificate Center of the Philippines released last August 2010 (La Top is now recognized as the first organic producers’ cooperative to be certified for North Luzon). Capacity Building Activities were conducted to strengthen La Top MPC to undertake major role in the dissemination of organic farming technologies, monitoring of their members’ compliance with organic methods of production, and marketing of organic farmers’ produce In terms of environmental impact, organic farming poses no risk of ground and surface water pollution as only natural materials are used as soil amendments. The soil analysis indicated that 52% of La Top farms have a soil pH range of 5.5-7.5, which is also the standard for certification from the OCCP. 9


Enterprise Development
Promote the enhancement of income generating or livelihood projects through microfinance, technical assistance and institutional development

Vegetable Trader

Over a decade ago, the Jaime V. Ongpin Foundation, Inc. launched the Microfinance Project. It aims to promote
economic growth, reduce poverty, support human development and improve the status of enterprising poor women, as its target sector, through small loans which helped them achieve financial stability. The project provides savings services with 7% interest per annum. Covered areas are Atok, Baguio City, Bokod, Itogon, La Trinidad, Tuba and Tublay. Using the Bangladesh’s Association for Social Advancement (ASA) methodology, more and more small businesses of enterprising women were financed. ASA methodology includes savings, loans, and mutual aid among clients of the microfinance project. Through this, they were able to secure loans with small interest to expand their small businesses and save money at the same time. Since then, the number of active clients increased and the financial performance improved. As of June 2011, the project already achieved the following:

Total Clients Borrowers Loan Guarantee (clients’ savings) Loan Portfolio Repayment Rate: For the Fiscal Year Portfolio-at-Risk (PAR) PAR Rate

1,812 1,447 Php 7,238,763 Php 14,066,060 99.20% 5.02%


The Microfinance Project of the Foundation plays an important role in improving the condition of small entrepreneurs in Benguet Province. Now, with its continuous advocacy on self-reliance and poverty-reduction, the Foundation is targeting to expand its areas to extend more assistance to enterprising poor women to help them improve their livelihood hence, improve their life.

I started on September 2008. My first loan was three thousand pesos (Php3,000). After I received the loan, I immediately bought a foot spa machine. Because of that, I was able to earn extra savings that enabled me to assist my husband in supporting our family’s daily needs and the school allowance of our children. There were days that I even earned an income of five hundred pesos (Php500) or even more. Maribel S. Duetiz It was February 2009 when my loan increased. My husband and I tried poultry raising but unfortunately we did not succeed. We used the small amount of money we earned from poultry raising in procuring a lot where we built our house.

Finally, we were able to slowly build our own house. On October 2010 my family and I transferred already. I am very grateful to our Almighty God and to JVOFI. If not for them, maybe we are still house caretakers up to now. JVOFI is really a big help. We even bought additional tools and materials for my husband’s construction business.

I started to become a member of JVOFI Microfinance Project in 2009. I had a friend who convinced me to join this project. At first, I honestly didn’t like to join because I thought it was just a waste of time. There were weekly meetings I needed to attend and requirements I needed to pass. And then eventually I was convinced to try it. I got five thousand pesos (Php5,000) initial loan. I used it to purchase my stocks and eventually I was able to improve my business. This year, I borrowed a bigger amount so my business all the more improved. The Microfinance Project is really a big help because this is where I get my capital. This is also where I get money for my children’s education. I have six (6) children, three of them are in college -- . that alone is of big help to me. Compared with other lending companies, the interest on my loan is smaller so the payment is not difficult. With this, I am very thankful to JVOFI for the assistance they give to micro-entrepreneurs like me. I am Annie Judaya. I started to join JVOFI’s Microfinance Project on April 2007, four years ago. The initial loan that I received was five thousand pesos (Php5,000). It increased until I reached fifty thousand pesos (Php50,000). It was of great help for my family because I was able to slowly put up an apartment for rent. Our house has a second floor already. The loan I got also helped us to support the schooling of my children. I am now able to buy things they need in school. Annie D. Judaya
Apartment Rental Owner

Aside from the apartment, I also have a small grocery store. At first, my items for sale were just hanged in the window. But now, I was able to construct a small store so it became more organized. I also added gas refill tanks and mineral water in my store.

I also have a water delivery business. The cost is fifty pesos (Php50) per drum. If JVOFI will give me a bigger loan, my husband and I are planning to have our own water pump so we can earn more instead of buying the water we deliver from a supplier.


Special Projects

Empowering the Farmer-Families

Coop Organizing &Capacity Building
for Tobacco Farmers in Region 1 and 2
PMFTC, Inc. organized a project called the Fuelwood and Bamboo Plantation Program in 2008. It aims to replace the amount of fuelwood used by the farmers in curing their tobacco and at the same time to prevent the destruction of the environment due to indiscriminate cutting of trees in the forest. Part of the project is the formation of Peoples Organizations (POs) that will establish and manage the plantations in La Union, Ilocos Sur, Cagayan and Isabela. Through these cooperatives, the project was able to sustain the interest of farmer-members while waiting for their fuelwood plantations to mature at a minimum of three (3) years. Tree seedling propagation, on the other hand, became a major livelihood opportunity for them. They were paid Php3.50 for every seedling planted and Php35.00/bamboo which contributed to their capital build-up. As the project continued to show great potential in improving farmers’ livelihood, more farmers in Region 1 were encouraged to form their own peoples’ organization. As a result, four (4) new farmers’ organizations were formed in Bangar, La Union; Lidlidda, Ilocos Sur; Banayoyo, Ilocos Sur; and, Sta. Cruz, Ilocos Sur and were registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). To date, there are already 12 farmers’ organizations, or 907 farmer-members, in Region 1 and 2 organized through JVOFI. One hundred twelve (112) hectares of idle lands were reforested with 155,445 planted seedlings. Landowners signed a contract with the farmers’ organizations at mutually beneficial terms spanning a period of at least 10 years. All farmer-groups were assisted by JVOFI in their registration with the SEC and the Cooperative Development Authority (CDA).

Since the tobacco industry is dependent on the availability of bamboo and wood to cure tobacco,


Farmers’ organizations brainstorm during the sustainability training in Region 2

On the other hand, in order to ensure that the people’s organizations (POs) formed in 2008-2010 become sustainable, several capacity building activities were conducted in the four provincial areas. Farmer-members underwent orientation, trainings, seminars and workshops to familiarize themselves with cooperative organizing. They attended and actively participated in the Project Orientation, Assessment & Planning, Visioning & Planning Workshop, Leadership & Organizational Development Training, Members Savings Generation & Bookkeeping, Public Speaking, Basic Cooperative Good Governance, Proposal Writing, and Sustainability Planning Training and Workshop. Capacity building was undertaken as a critical component of the triple bottomline approach that JVOFI adopted for this project. This approach helps ensure that economic and environmental benefits are sustained by the communities who are the main stakeholders in the project.

“I am so grateful for the programs they organized for us farmers and the benefits we received. Truly our expenses were lessened because of these programs. I hope they will continue to help not only us farmers but also our families.” (Coop Organizing and Capacity Building) - JoselitoGines, Banayoyo, Ilocos Sur

PMFTC’s 2010 Curing Barn Furnace Project
Project of PMFTC Inc. It was December 2010 when PMFTC Inc. chose farmer recipients of the venturi furnaces from nineteen (19) tobacco producing municipalities in Region 1. On February 2011, the company, together with the Jaime V. Ongpin Foundation, Inc. (JVOFI), started to give the venturi furnaces to each farmer-recipient. This project is part of PMFTC’s commitment to farmers reduce fuelwood consumption that will eventually redound to lower production costs and promote protection of remaining forests. JVOFI, with the help of PMFTC’s leaf technicians, reported that with the new furnaces, farmers were able to save 0.5-1 cubic meter, or 14% – 33% of fuelwood amounting to Php600.00/hectare for every curing. PMFTC’s suppliers, Trans Manila Inc. (TMI) and Universal Leaf Philippines Inc. (ULPI), were also given assistance through this project. One hundred (100) TMI farmers from the Ilocos Region were given Anawang furnaces while one hundred (100) ULPI farmers from the same region were given Venturi furnaces. Under the project, JVOFI assisted in the monitoring of the installation and consumption of fuelwood. A total of 350 tobacco farmers benefited from the 2010-11 crop year Curing Barn Furnace Project of PMFTC Inc.

Passing On The Gift CHATON
hunger and poverty and with good environmental condition. It uses 12 Cornerstones which echoes Heifer’s practices that ensure projects sustainability. Passing on the Gift, one of Heifer’s cornerstones, allows families to become donors themselves of the gifts they received from the foundation to other families in need. This practice enables the families in a community to extend the benefits of the project to other families in their area and other neighboring barangays. In line with this, Heifer Philippines International, in partnership with Jaime V. Ongpin Foundation, Inc. (JVOFI), organized a project in Tadian Mountain Province in 2010. The project was called CHATON – Capacity Building and Harnessing Animal dispersal To transform lives and Nurture the environment. The project not only aims to improve the socio-economic status of the beneficiaries but also to instill good values among community residents. To date, CHATON Project, with the help of JVOFI, has now identified and trained one hundred (100) original families which divided into four (4) Self-Help Groups (SHGs). All partner families went through series of Cornerstone workshops and trainings like the Improved Animal Management Training, Community Management Disaster Risk Reduction Training and PSRP Training. Now all of the 100 partner families have already received Heifer’s gifts of one hog, and a pair of chicken (1 hen and 1 rooster) each. They were also given a shovel, assorted highland vegetable seeds, corn and soybean seeds, camote cuttings, citrus trees and timber trees. With livestock gifts and trainings, partner families were given a chance to improve their nutrition, especially children, and generate income in sustainable ways. The animals in particular served as the partner families’ living loans as they agreed to give one of the animal's offspring to another family in

Heifer International, a non-profit charitable organization, envisions a sustainable world without

need, in exchange for their livestock and trainings. CHATON Project indeed contributed to Heifer’s mission turning lives of hunger and poverty into self-reliance and hope.
