Company Description:

The RTN Foundation, Inc. (RTNFI), a non-stock, non-profit corporation was registered with the SEC on February 18, 1987. The Foundation was initially organized primarily in compliance with the Republic Act No. 7942 (Philippine Mining Act of 1995) to wit: “The contractor shall assist in the development of its mining community, the promotion of the general welfare of its inhabitants and the development of science and mining technology”. It also serves as the CSR of the Rio Tuba Nickel Mining Corporation. As such, the Foundation was tasked to oversee the operations of LASSO affiliated basic education school (Leonides S. Virata Memorial School) and primary hospital. The school and the hospital serve the needs of the residents of the 11 barangays that comprise the impact areas of the Foundation and the employees and families of the mining company. In addition, it operates a broad community based development program (housing, alternative learning system, infrastructure, health and sanitation and livelihood) that has marginalized sectors in the target communities and indigenous people in the Province of Palawan as target beneficiaries.

The Foundation is housed in a 16 hectare mining camp in Bgy Rio Tuba, Bataraza Palawan. Its Metro Manila office is located at 2F NAC bldg. Dela Rosa cor. Adelantado St. Legazpi Village, Makati. The Foundation has a regular staff of 132, project-based staff of seven (7), part time/contractual staff of 40, probationary staff of 15 and has no volunteers.

The Foundation was granted a five (5)-year certification on February 5, 2008 which lapsed on February 4, 2013.
