ABOUT HERO Foundation, Inc. on their Website
HERO Foundation was instituted in 1988 to answer the growing and continuing requirement to help the families of fallen soldiers. A group of distinguished leaders of business and industry of the country responded to the call for help. Among them were Don Jaime Zobel de Ayala, Henry Sy, Sr., Washington SyCip, Patricio Lim, and Raul Concepcion.
HERO stands for Help Educate and Rear Orphans. The Foundation was registered on August 24, 1988 with the Security and Exchange Commission as a non-stock, not-for-profit organization.
Today, the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP), through the AFP-Educational Benefit System Office (AFP-EBSO), rely on HERO Foundation, Inc. for supplemental financial support for the AFP orphans. The support come in the form of stipends that are directly given to the families to help them with the cost of books, uniform, meals, transportation, school supplies and sometimes, even their tuition fees. A new program, REACH (Rise, Empower, Aspire, Commit, and Honor) provides complete education assistance to selected exceptional college-level military orphans.
Secured and consistent education support for children of soldiers from the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) who made the supreme sacrifice of dying or being permanently incapacitated in the line of duty of being vanguards of our freedom and national sovereignty.
To provide educational assistance in the form of stipends to children and dependent siblings of Filipino soldiers killed in action (KIA) or totally incapacitated while in line of duty.
HERO aims to help these children obtain a college or university degree, or a certificate in a vocational course, in order to give them a competitive chance in finding good and decent jobs or profession. This will in turn provide them a better opportunity to help their families and become productive members of our society.
