We women play an import role in the society, especially in our family. We never stop in finding ways how we can improve or help our household. No stone is left unturned if we put our mind in something that we think could help our family, may it be emotionally, physically and financially. With these, companies find ways how to empower women to further improved their lives.
Last week, a company once again presented it’s commitment to the women of today. The event was held at Romulo’s Café in Makati. MasterCard is a technology company in the global payments industry. It operate the world’s fastest payments processing network, connecting consumers, financial institutions, merchants, governments and businesses in more than 210 countries and territories. MasterCard’s products and solutions make everyday commerce activities – such as shopping, traveling, running a business and managing finances – easier, more secure and more efficient for everyone.
In line with their CSR, MasterCard Worldwide renews its commitment to women’s empowerment by again joining hands with the Singapore Committee of UN Women to launch the third edition of Project Inspire: 5 Minutes to Change the World. MasterCard is also awarding an additional USD25, 000 grants to past Grand Prize winner Hapinoy.
Project Inspire is a digital and social media driven program that encourages young people across the world to empower disadvantaged women and girls in Asia/Pacific, the Middle East or Africa (APMEA). It opened in 2011, to coincide with the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day and the 25th anniversary of MasterCard in APMEA.
