Penbrothers, a business that values social impact, commits to create programs, activities, and eventually provide jobs for the youth at SOS Children’s Villages Philippines. This partnership was further strengthened by Josef Werker, Penbrothers’ Managing Director, being a goodwill ambassador.

“In my experience, people who go through the most difficult times are the people who achieve the most. And you know what? Life is not supposed to be this mundane and easy journey; it’s supposed to be tough, and that’s what makes us all special & unique. With those experiences behind you & with this incredible support mechanism that SOS Children’s Village provides, this is why you will succeed.” Josef says. 

 

The rest of the afternoon was spent by the volunteers cooking for the families, playing with arts & crafts, doing chores and wrapped up with a friendly game of basketball. “That’s how we do it here inSOS Children’s Village – it’s like visiting your nieces and nephews, that’s the whole concept of immersion.” says Admore Alzate, Corporate Relations Head of SOS Children’s Villages Philippines.
