Company Description:

The Bayan Academy for Social Entrepreneurship and Human Resource Development, Inc. (BASE-HRD or Bayan Academy) was registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) as a non-stock, non-profit organization on January 13, 2009. It was primarily established to equip ABS-CBN Bayan Foundation’s micro borrower clients with the necessary skills to become small and even medium sized entrepreneurs and also equip their relatives with necessary skills in order to obtain employment. In 2011, the Board of Trustees of ABS-CBN Bayan Foundation and Bayan Academy decided to merge the two (2) organizations, with Bayan Academy as the surviving organization. After the merger, Bayan Academy maintained a mixed portfolio of income-generating and socially-oriented programs and projects. In 2014, the Board of Trustees decided to spin off the income generating program into a separate entity, the Bayan Enterprise Development, Growth and Evolution, Inc. (Bayan-EDGE). To date, Bayan Academy pursues its social mission offering entrepreneurship, management and education training programs and services for development institutions, cooperatives, banks, educational institutions and micro and small enterprises, as well as livelihood and skills training courses. More than a training facility, Bayan Academy is a learning hub and laboratory for the development of new learning methodologies and technologies in teaching entrepreneurship and management, as well as innovative learning materials that cater to the entrepreneurial poor. Bayan Academy has developed different modalities to fit the learning preferences of its target beneficiaries-from tailor-fit livelihood courses through corporate partnerships, to entrepreneurship for the masses, workers assistance, technical and livelihood courses for communities, a culinary facility and technopreneurship. Its main office is located at 2nd Floor, Cinderella Building, 825 EDSA, Quezon City. The foundation has 17 regular staff, 2 project-based staff, 10 members of the Board of Trustees.

Its purposes (V-M-G), among others, are “to be a stewards of a happy, healthy and wealthy Filipino, caring communities and progressive industries; to improve the quality of life and uplift the socio-economic status of Filipino families, especially those in the lower income group, and provide them the means to live with dignity and sufficiency; and to be the role model in social entrepreneurship and the exemplary stewards of sustainable philanthropy”.
