The Tulong Aral ng Petron is a long term and strategic initiative that helps send poor children to school, keep them there, and make sure they learn. The Tulong ng Aral started in 2002 to give scholars the opportunity to complete elementary education. It has since provided scholarships to top scholars in high school and college.
This consists of Tulong Aral ng Petron, Tulong Aral High School Scholarship, Tulong Aral College Scholarship, Reading Programs, and Brigada Eskwela.
The Tulong Aral Scholars are enrolled from Grades 1 to 6 in partner schools in the National Capital Region (Caloocan, Malabon, Navotas, Valenzuela, Manila, Pasay, Mandaluyong, Quezon City, Paranaque, Taguig, Pateros, Pasig and Las Pinas) and in the Mindanao region (Davao, South Cotabato, Sarangani, Iligan, Misamis Oriental and Zamboanga).
PFI partners in Tulong Aral include the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) and the Department of Education (DepEd), with World Vision Development implementing the program. The partnership with SM Retail allows the efficient distribution of school supplies for the scholars.
One of Petron’s flagship corporate social responsibility programs in education is TAP, which aims to give underprivileged children from the company’s fenceline communities a brighter future by sending them to school and providing them with the necessary tools for learning.
