Aligned with its mission to enrich lives and build communities sustainably, Security Bank Corporation has strengthened its partnership with the Center for Community Transformation (CCT) by helping build Lupang Pangako, a 37.5-hectare non-contiguous land in Cabanatuan City, Nueva Ecija.
Lupang Pangako, termed after the Promised Land, is a resettlement site for former street dwellers served by the CCT Kaibigan Ministry. At present, CCT Kaibigan Ministry helps around 5,000 street dwellers annually across the Philippines. CCT aims to relocate 180 rehabilitated street dwellers to Lupang Pangako yearly.
“We’re proud to support CCT as they continue to make a positive impact and provide chances for a better future. This initiative is closely aligned to some of the key pillars of Security Bank’s mission—to enrich lives and build communities,” says Tanya Deakin, VP and Head of Corporate Communications at Security Bank.
Since 2020, the Bank has supported the projects of CCT including CCT-Tindahan Para sa Bayan Program that extended PHP2.7 million to small businesses during the pandemic. A support package was also given in 2021 for the CCT-Visions of Hope to support the education of tribal scholars in Malungon, Sarangani.
