MEET THE 10 WINNERS OF SUN LIFE FOUNDATION'S BRIGHTER WORLD BUILDER CHALLENGE


The Sun Life Foundation, together with The Spark Project is funding 10 financial literacy projects nationwide through its #BrighterWorldBuilder Challenge. Its 10 winners, which was recently announced have just been welcomed by Sun Life Philippines as their new allies in helping more Filipinos secure their future.

I personally saw the spark in the eyes of each of the winners as they receive their award a few days ago.  The Brighter World Builder Challenge program was launched to search for, fund, and accelerate financial literacy initiatives, in celebration of Sun Life Foundation’s 10th anniversary. Out of a total of 49 applications, 20 finalists were chosen to undergo a Social Impact Boot Camp spearheaded by The Spark Project and presented their final pitch to a distinguished panel of judges. Out of the 20 entries, 10 projects stood out and are chosen as winners for this year's Brighter World Builder Challenge.

The top 10 winners will receive a Php 100,000 grant they can use in the implementation of their projects and programs as well as crowdfunding support from The Spark Project. 

Alex Narciso, Sun Life Foundation President mentioned that their 10 winners have shown that is through creativity and innovation that Filipinos are encouraged to be more financially savvy and to become more financially secure.
