JCI Makati’s Bid for JCI Metro South Area Conference
September 21, 2021
IT IS NEVER ABOUT WINNING, NOR THE ACCOLADE. JCI Makati Completed Their Projects To Better Themselves And To Rise As One With The Filipino People Whom Lives They Have Touched During This Pandemic. – 2021 JCI Makati President Lawrence Li Tan
14 Golden Titan Awards and 10 Merit Awards were vested upon JCI Makati in the recently concluded Area Conference of JCI Metro South Area last September 18, 2021. Joined by local organizations of the JCI Metro South Area, with 24 awards to contend on and more than 100 entries received. JCI Makati experienced a very humbling experience to be honored by the programs and projects that they accomplished for the year 2021.
Headed by its President Lawrence Li Tan, the local organizations have seen the value of collaboration, mentorship, cooperation with different other non-government organizations, companies, and government agencies. Their projects proved that the best outcomes are achievable if its mission were shared by more people in achieving a common good.
JCI Makati’s RISE AS ONE platinum agenda for the year is composed of more than 500 projects that were anchored on helping gear the economy to be resilient in times of pandemic. Programs were created that were focused on different society sectors, but activities were meant to mentor and coach Filipinos to be business-minded and utilize their unique talents, creativity, and skills to their advantage.
Overseas Filipino Workers were not helped to go find their horizon outside the country, but rather displaced OFWs because of the pandemic were taught to be new entrepreneurs. This was done with the premise that fewer Filipinos will find the beauty of leaving the country to seek better employment abroad in the future. Projects of JCI Makati were created to help Filipinos from different parts of the country to be resilient and to see opportunities, even in the most challenging time of the pandemic.
The local organization was able to push for its projects and programs with the help of its corporate sponsors and partnerships with the different organizations that share the same advocacies. Much was accomplished with collaborations and the unreachable Filipino Indigenous People (IP) were also reached with the help of JCI Makati’s partner organizations and donors.

True to JCI Creed, “service to humanity is the best work of life” JCI Makati exceeded what they thought was impossible. Thus above all the challenges that they met along the way while helping the Filipinos, our environment, and animals, the JCI Makati brothers also helped themselves by finding comfort within the organization. Realizing that there is more to life other than being self-centered and self-pitying and that their life can be so much more if it is shared by many by being of service to others and this planet.
