Irineo Bong Alvaro, the man behind the Bridges of Benevolent Initiatives Foundation Incorporated recently awarded a full year college scholarship grant to some 95 students from various universities and schools as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility.

The awarding ceremonies were held at the Fiesta Pavilion of the Midori Resort and Casino, one of the premier hotels inside Clark Freeport Pampanga.

Alvaro has been very active in various socio-civic activities which made him a notable public figure since becoming a full time businessman who wants to extend his services especially in the academe sector.

Providing scholarship grants to 95 beneficiaries has indeed brought change in the lives of the needy in poverty-stricken areas in various parts in Angeles City and other nearby communities.

Alvaro’s foundation aims to provide opportunities for the people to become self-reliant, independent, resilient and productive members of the community in particular, and of society in general.

“With this noble undertakings, it reminds me of my late father who once told me that if I want to get out poverty I need to finish my studies,” Alvaro said during his speech in the event.

Keep it up Bong!!!
