“The Better Half” actress Shaina Magdayao was finally able to achieve her dream of helping the less-fortunate by building her own foundation.
Shaina Magdayao was finally able to achieve her wish to build her own foundation “SMILE Cares Foundation”. She shared that it took three years before she was able to successfully open up her own foundation. Magdayao also teamed up with Dingdong Dantes’ Yes Pinoy Foundation, alongside PBA player LA Tenorio.
In an interview for PBA Rush, Shaina Magdayao shared that the team’s goal is to help the out-of-school youth in Siargao. She said that they plan to build an eco-camp in the 200 hectar land donated to them, adding that they plan to use Indonesia’s Green Camp as model for the eco-camp.
@SMILECaresFoundation is grateful to have our first partner for the first program component, YES PINOY FOUNDATION, led by its chairman, Dingdong Dantes. We found ourselves a natural ally in terms of our advocacy to empower youth through EDUCATION (SCF) and ENVIRONMENTAL AWARENESS (YPF). With our partnership, the program "YES TO FULL STEAM AHEAD", in #Siargao, will emphasize on the importance of #STEAM in shaping up a generation that will steward a GREENer future, our program aims to create livelihood opportunities in the community using their natural resources in a sustainable manner. The selection of out of school youth is fitting because we wanted to show that #steam is for everyone, going back to what our foundation strongly believes, that 💡 POVERTY SHOULD NOT BE A BARRIER FOR GREAT IDEAS 💡and that the potential of OSYs to contribute to a sustainable future is huge! 💯 #SMILECaresFoundation #YESPinoyFoundation #YPFxSCFLaunch #YPFxSCF 🌈 Cheeeers! To 3 …turned 30 years of walang bawiang partnership 🤝🙏👏✅💡💚
