Cebu Air, Inc. (Cebu Pacific), the Philippines’ largest national flag carrier, has signed on once again as the Official Air Carrier of the Ninoy & Cory Aquino Leadership Journey 2012.
Mr. Ruben V. Tangco, Managing Director of the Ninoy & Cory Aquino Foundation (NCAF), and Ms. Candice A. Iyog, Cebu Air Inc. (Cebu Pacific) Vice President for Marketing and Distribution, formalized the partnership during a Memorandum of Agreement signing ceremony held at the Cebu Air, Inc. office in Pasay City last May 31, 2012.
“2011 was a momentous year for the Ninoy & Cory Aquino Leadership Journey,” said Tangco. We were able to conduct four runs of the program. Twenty-two promising young student-leaders from Visayas and Mindanao were able to participate in the program thanks to the generous support of Cebu Air, Inc.”
This year, NCAF envisions at least four more batches of student leaders undergoing the Ninoy & Cory Aquino Leadership Journey, including additional runs in the Visayas-Mindanao area, to cater to more young and deserving Filipino leaders. Cebu Air, Inc. has committed to allot twenty-five round-trip tickets with assured seating (to and from Manila) for Journey participants from provinces in the Visayas, Mindanao and other remote islands in the Philippines.
“What makes this partnership ideal”, explained Tangco, “is that the Cebu Pacific brand has this distinct youthful appeal that blends well with the goal of the program—to mold committed and transformative young Filipinos.”
THE NINOY AND CORY AQUINO CENTER FOR LEADERSHIP (NCACL)
The Ninoy and Cory Aquino Center for Leadership is an institution established with the help of Drs. Rolando and Rosalinda Hortaleza of Splash Corporation. NCACL seeks to identify, form, nurture and recognize individuals who, through a process of self-transformation, can develop into a community of empowering, world-class leaders.
NINOY AND CORY AQUINO FOUNDATION (NCAF)
The Ninoy and Cory Aquino Foundation traces its roots to the Benigno S. Aquino, Jr. Foundation (BSAF), established by the late Senator’s widow in November 1983 to perpetuate his legacy. BSAF became her vehicle for continuing to engage non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and people’s organizations (POs) that played a key role in empowering communities and reviving democratic institutions alongside her administration.
