Villar SIPAG awards P5M to outstanding cooperatives

A total of P5 million in cash was awarded to 20 cooperatives as a result of the yearly nationwide search for outstanding organizations and community enterprises which are models of good practices in poverty reduction.

The Villar SIPAG (Social Institute for Poverty Alleviation and Governance) led by former Senate President Manny Villar, Sen. Cynthia Villar, and Las Pinas Rep. Mark Villar recognizes enterprises which helped reduce poverty in their communities through the Villar SIPAG Awards on Poverty Reduction.

"Through this initiative, we were able to recognize the work of cooperatives in supplementing government efforts to fight poverty. No cash prize can ever sufficiently reward the very important accomplishment of improving people's lives, especially in the rural areas," Cynthia Villar said.
