Paying it forward

TaosPuso Foundation

The Tao Community reaches out to those in need through its foundation and CSR programs. With each life touched, our community is strengthened.

The Tao Community, through its TaosPuso Foundation, is doing its share to improve the state of public education in the country.  The company strives to “pay it forward” by focusing on public education, public sports programs and the promotion of Filipino music as its primary advocacies.

"Philippine education is in crisis.  Everyday, more than 17 million school children face the dreary reality of a lack of public classrooms, books and teachers."

Despite the best efforts of the government, 16% of children drop out of school in Grades 1 and 2.  Many cannot read nor understand what they read,  even in the higher grade levels.

For Public Education
TAO implemented the e-Impact Learning System, an alternative mode of delivery approved by the Department of Education and  developed by Seameo (Southeast Asia Ministers of Education) Innotech,  which not only seeks to improve the quality of education but through its innovative approaches and methods – expects to minimize, if not totally eliminate,  the reasons for drop-outs.

For Sports
Much like education, sports is an integral part in shaping a young one’s values and ability to move forward in life. TAO started the Energen sports program to teach values in sports, and provide communities the ability to participate in various programs. TAO supports the Energen U-16 Basketball team.

For the Promotion of Filipino music
7101 Music Nation was founded to enhance local music artistry. Under the auspices of the TaosPuso Foundation, 7101 Music Nation launched its pilot project, dubbed the Elements National Songwriting Camp. The event, the first of its kind in the Philippines, aimed to gather professional and aspiring songwriters from various disciplines and genres, and provide them with a venue to collaborate and create their own kind of music, all in a serene, natural setting, held annually in Dumaguete, Negros Oriental.

For the Tao Community, true success is achieved only if it succeeds in uniting hands and improving lives.

The program serves as a tool for character formation and leadership training of young individuals. This in turn, will also serve as a feeder program for the National youth team with the aim of regaining the lost glory of the Philippines in Asian Basketball.
