Social Development Programmes
Sustainable community development programmes empowering individuals to create solutions to problems and shape their own future
Pandacan Expanded Assistance for Community Empowerment (PEACE) is a comprehensive social development programme (SDP) implemented in the fenceline communities of Shell Pandacan terminal. It aims to generate employment, provide livelihood opportunities, develop skills through education, conserve the environment, promote health and safety, and enhance capacities of partner community groups.
The Batangas SDP is geared towards helping the communities surrounding the Shell Tabangao refinery and the Malampaya onshore gas plant in Batangas. It seeks to help TALIM (Tabangao, Ambulong, Libjo, San Isidro, and Malitam) barangays develop self-reliance ad self-sufficiency to address their needs in livelihood and employment, health, and other basic social concerns.
The Palawan SDP sprung out of the successful implementation of Kilusan Ligtas Malaria (KLM). With KLM as the springboard programme, PSFI introduced other programmes to support the Palaweños and increase their capacities for taking care of their own welfare, apart from health.
Today, Palawan SDP covers health, livelihood and entrepreneurship, support to indigenous peoples, environmental conservation, sustainable tourism, and emergency response.
A comprehensive social performance programme was implemented by PSFI for the Pasacao depot in 2004-2005 to show a tangible community programme intended to widen stakeholder base and manage expectations from the local government. To re-establish relations with the LGU and help alleviate extreme poverty in the area after Typhoon Reming (international name: Durian), PSFI re-launched the Pasacao SDP in 2007. In coordination with the Pasacao municipal government, PSFI adopted project-based, short interventions focused on addressing concerns of livelihood and employment, waste management, capacity building, and emergency response.
The Tacloban SDP is a partnership among the Shell Anibong Depot, PSFI, and the City Government of Tacloban, together with the local barangays (69&70). It is a response to the expressed needs of the community in areas concerning employment generation and skills development, livelihood and enterprise development; health, safety, and environment.
