World Vision, Wells Fargo launch Bridge to Employment and En

Written by Amanda

Multinational financial services firm Wells Fargo has partnered with World Vision to provide the Manila youth with sustainable economic opportunities through entrepreneurial and employable skills training. The Bridge to Employment and Entrepreneurship Project will support 180 students under the Department of Education’s Alternative Learning System (ALS) and 20 out-of-school youth who will be enrolled in technical vocation programs of the Technical Education Skills and Development Authority.

“This project will definitely benefit the out-of-school youth and those under the ALS program as better opportunities are now within reach. Part of our commitment to spark hope, to spark joy and to encourage the children and their families. So that’s why we really value this kind of partnership, so our sincerest gratitude to Wells Fargo for opening the doors to this opportunity.” said Roberto Dazo, Operations Manager for Luzon Field Office of World Vision.

Wells Fargo’s partnership with World Vision aligns with the bank’s efforts to promote financial health and entrepreneurship in the communities where it operates.

“We have always endeavored to help communities succeed, and our partnership with World Vision provides another dimension which allows us to achieve this objective. Education is a foundational component to productivity and World Vision has always kept this at the forefront of their programs. Seeing our participants complete their technical training will pay dividends, not only to the participants themselves and their families, but also the community at large. ” said Dan Siena, Vice President of Wells Fargo Philippines, who co-facilitated a Vision Board Workshop for the Baseco youth during the launch event together with Wells Fargo leaders Chief Operating Officer, India & Philippines Lina Nair, Business Execution Director Pavithra Rajeev, Assistant Vice President Sharon Uy and Senior Community Impact & Sustainability Specialist AJ Tapia.

To complement the technical training provided by the formal curriculum, World Vision will also conduct value-based life skills sessions. The youth will also benefit from the project through capacity building workshops, as well as trainings on community issues and entrepreneurial development. They will also be taught how to save, to improve financial literacy. The Bridge to Employment and Entrepreneurship Project is the first partnership project between World Vision and Wells Fargo. This project will contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals #4 Quality Education and #8 Decent Work and Economic Growth.
