Two presentations were made during the event. Team Energy Foundation Executive Director Mr. Roderick de Castro highlighted his presentation with a case study on how CSR, with energy as catalyst, has helped in countryside development. He elaborated on their foundation’s rural electrification program and its positive as well as negative results in the lives of people in far-flung areas of the country. Another presentation, that of Metrolink Solutions Corporation, had Mr. Paul Brandenburg and Mr. George Delmas covering a social business initiative themed “SPARC” or Sustainable Progressive Action for Revitalization of Communities which provides a holistic approach to community development, education and medical services via internet-enabled content, applications and physical support structures.
