Akari formalizes foundation’s Lim Liok Lim and Carter Tiu Scholarships

Extending its support to the youth beyond collegiate sports, Akari recently gathered the 2018-2019 Adamson University scholars of the company. In an intimate dinner, Christopher Tiu, Akari CEO, reiterated the lighting and energy company’s commitment to help enlighten the future of the Filipino youth.

“Through the Lim Liok Lim and Carter Tiu scholarships, we aim to give back via tertiary scholarship grants. The immediate family members of our employees, as well as the nearest kin of the athletes of the company-sponsored school teams are our priority. We’re also open to providing scholarship grants to indigent but deserving individuals,” the lowkey executive said.

Scholars of the Akari Foundation can choose an engineering-related course under the Carter Tiu Scholarship; other specializations will fall under the Lim Liok Lim Scholarship. Aside from full tuition fee grant, scholars will also receive free textbooks and the opportunity to be hired by the top local lighting brand after earning their degree.

“The Akari Foundation scholars should take advantage of the quality of education they stand to receive from a top Philippine university. We are likewise happy to expand our partnership with Adamson University. We not only support the university’s athletic program in the UAAP; beyond that, we believe in the high-quality Vincentian education. It is our hope that in the future, our grantees will in turn give back by helping their respective families have a brighter and better life,” Tiu closed.

Interested individuals may send their application for a scholarship grant to akarifoundation@akari.com.ph.


Akari lights up Brgy. Kuya in Maguindanao

Akari, through the Kabayan Special Patrol segment on TV Patrol, once again answered the call of providing solar-powered LED lanterns to another community with no access to electricity. This time, 200 families from Brgy. Kuya, Sitio Benuan, South Upi Maguindanao benefitted from Noli de Castro’s program aiming to reach out to far flung schools and communities deprived of electricity.

With Akari’s donation, Brgy. Kuya stands to benefit from the LED rechargeable lanterns that can be powered though solar charging. Along with Kabayan, Akari is hopeful that this will ignite the students’ persistence to education despite the circumstances.

Akari Lighting & Technology Corp., through Mr. Noli de Castro’s efforts, is proud to support Kabayan Special Patrol’s continuing initiative to reach out to schools in remote areas. Ka Noli recently visited Arakan, North Cotabato. The said province was badly hit by El Niño, prompting several of its residents to join the 2016 Kidapawan Protests.

In addition to school supplies, vitamins and teaching aids provided by the TV program to the students of Ganatan Elementary School Extension, Akari donated the much needed rechargeable LED solar lanterns to residents of Brgy. Ganatan, Sitio Makati in Arakan. The electricity-deprived community was elated to receive the solar-powered lamps.
