Chevron reaches out to communities with livelihood & road safety programs during Week of Caring 2017

Employees of Chevron Philippines Inc. (CPI), marketer of Caltex fuels and lubricants, shed their office suits and shared their culture of safety and excellence with their host communities during the recent Week of Caring 2017.

Stay-at-home moms in Pasig, where several Caltex stations operate, learned how to run a home-based soap-making business. While grade school pupils of San Pascual Central School (SPCS), which is near the Chevron Batangas Terminal, learned how to stay safe along the town’s busy street as they go to and from school.

CPI, through its employee cooperative, provided starter kits to the moms and its employees helped prepare, measure, and mix the mothers’ first batch of dishwashing soaps and fabric conditioners. Chevron also provided training on marketing, sales and bookkeeping to help the trainees launch and sustain their new home-based business.

“The goal is to provide the mothers with profitable knowledge that they can then use to earn and supply their families’ daily needs. We hope to impart long-term solutions for them and their families,” said CPI Human Resources manager Ramon Ortiz.

Road safety was the topic the CPI volunteers taught grades one to three students of SPCS in San Pascual, Batangas. The volunteers teamed up with the kids in learning activities and challenges that reinforce the importance of road safety and how to navigate the tricycle, jeepney and truck-packed streets of San Pascual, Batangas.

“We put premium value on safety, it’s our culture and a key performance indicator of how we do things in Chevron. Safety is a way of life for the employees. Road safety and road discipline are strictly practiced. To be able to share this advocacy and culture to young minds helps spread safety consciousness among our host community” said Atty. Raissa Bautista, CPI Manager for Policy, Government and Public Affairs.

For the two projects, the employees logged 128 volunteer hours from a total of 46 volunteers. These volunteers helped more than 30 mothers generate an alternative source of income and educated 30 grade school students with a road safety program.

Chevron’s yearly Volunteer Week program champions the need for diversity in the workplace through volunteerism that will benefit CPI’s host communities and disadvantaged people.
