ISA Group Corporate Social Responsibility – Kuya Programme, Philippines

For Immediate Release

Perth, January 2015 – ISA Group’s CSR activities via the Kuya Programme in Philippines, achieved its objective of improving the lives of two young men in Manila.

Br. Luc Boudreault, sc said, “I am glad to inform that Wilmber Cabudoc and Jeffrey C Alla are now working. Wilmer is in Tarlac working in welding and is also studying a Bachelor’s degree. Jeffrey works in a construction company in Guadalupe and goes home to Litex. His wife is expected to give birth to their second child soon.”

Brett Merrey, Recruitment Director of ISA Group said, “We are certainly happy with the progress shown by the two young men and our role to help improve, empower them to develop life skills and values towards a productive life. We like to thank Br Luc for the support and the good relationship we have enjoyed over the years.”

In Wilmer’s first month living away from home he shared with his social worker that he felt nervous at the beginning. Although he is quite shy, he is very happy with the opportunity granted to him whose family has been a great support to him.

After initially struggling to get back in the routine of classes and studying, Jeffrey learnt a lot about welding. His family have been a rock of support and Jeffrey appreciates that the chance he has been given is very rare which opens up huge opportunities for him and his family.

Kuya program was supported by ISA Group in 2012, with the aim of contributing towards the community in Manila, and is designed to provide opportunities for young men from disadvantaged families to learn practical trade skills along with personal development. Over the years, ISA Group has been active in successfully recruiting and obtaining Australian visas for many Filipino nationals to move and work in Australia.
