Let's create A Better Life together

For years, authors and publishers have pursued to articulate how people's lives are touched and made better because hope have come to them in different forms. A library has become home to thousands of books about real-life Cinderellas, champions, miracles, unexpected victories and formulas on success, but a book is yet to be dedicated to the efforts companies have exerted to help people steer the nation to palpable heights.

A Better Life, Stories of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a coffee table book that brims with colorful and moving photographs, stories and vignettes about ordinary people making extraordinary changes in their lives. They are heading out of poverty, the result of the work of their own hands enabled by the passion and commitment of corporate citizens.

A Better Life features the CSR milestones of PBSP’s operations in the Visayas in the areas of livelihood and enterprise, education, health, environment and capacity building of communities. The CSR projects of 32 Philippine companies help make A Better Life an important resource book for companies, CSR practitioners, civil society, academe and individuals who believe in every person’s capacity for self-reliance in the face of adversity.
