The Metrobank Foundation positions itself as a development organization contributing to address the many faces of poverty plaguing our country. Its thrust to provide livelihood opportunities to people is aligned with the attainment of SDG 1”End poverty in all forms everywhere” and SDG 2 “End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture.”
Livelihood programs supported are those that allow underprivileged families to help themselves. Thus, the Foundation channels its interventions to its social development partners which aim to uplift the underprivileged and implement sustainable programs that address their needs. As a long term approach, the idea is to help them rise from their circumstances until such a time that they are able to break away from the cycle of dependence and poverty.
