Cebuana Lhuillier has grown significantly through the years. Compared to a humble pawnshop in Cebu, we are now the Philippines’ largest microfinancial solutions provider with more than 2,000 branches nationwide. Aside from that, we have also gained presence in other coutries through our international remittance partners. We wouldn’t have gone this far without our loyal clients and passionate workforce.
In the same manner when it comes to our corporate social responsibility, we have gone from a donation giving body to a catalyst of change and unity, partnering with government and non-government agencies to help improve the lives of Filipinos.
There is much wisdom in the old proverb, “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” This means that the key to combat poverty and to create a better life is through "teaching", "Education". So, we intensified our education advocacy by partnering with the Department of Education (DepEd) to enhance the Alternative Learning System (ALS). So far, we have established 31 ALS centers in different communities, with some located in the calamity-stricken areas of Tacloban, Bohol, Eastern Samar, and Northern Cebu.
These Cebuana Lhuillier ALS centers were equipped with improved facilities and programs that aim to help more Filipinos get better jobs. leading to higher income. This allows them to have access to more provisions to build better lives for themselves and their families. We ask for your prayers and for your support in moving forward with Cebuana Lhuillier ALS, pursuing the goal to make education accessible to all Filipinos from different ways of life.
We have gone so far but this is just the beginning. There are no limitations to giving help to those who need it. Through our efforts, we hope to start a ripple-effect, not only among other companies, but also among individuals.
Our cause is not just for education, not just against poverty, but also for a better Philippines.
