Perhaps the desire to help is inherent in every hotelier.
As the executives, staff members and partners of New World Makati Hotel and AG New World Manila Bay have shown, their willingness to extend a helping hand to those in need extends well beyond the walls of their hotels.
This year, New World Makati Hotel and AG New World Manila Bay organized and participated in the second annual Golf Cup 2017. The event was held on September 29, 2017 at the Orchard Golf and Country Club with the goal of helping young scholars from the Springboard Foundation in line with National Literacy Month.
16 underprivileged scholars were ensured six years of private high school education.

“We are very pleased to announce that we have raised half a million pesos for the scholars of Springboard Foundation through the help of our sponsors and participants. This will enable these children to receive quality education critical to their future. New World Hotels and Resorts strongly advocates access to education; and it’s a pleasure to be able to do this while also creating camaraderie and be an instrument for change,” says New World Makati Hotel General Manager Farid Schoucair.
Participating in socially responsible activities has been part of these hotel’s core practices. In the past, they have successfully staged the Run and Raise charity fun runs 2015 to 2017, and as well as offered financial support to victims of natural disasters, committied to recycling and conservation efforts and provided career-enhancing training for all associates.
