Globe and NABU collaborate to support the literacy development of underprivileged Filipino kids

One major problem that interferes with a person’s ability to participate in society is illiteracy. It restricts employment options and keeps people in a cycle of poverty. Despite having a basic literacy rate of over 95%, there are still some undeveloped areas of illiteracy in the Philippines.

Given the critical role that literacy plays in improving people’s lives, Globe and NABU, a reading software and mother language publishing platform that makes literacy available to children around the world, have teamed. NABU, a nonprofit organization with its headquarters in New York, aims to end poverty by promoting literacy.

The partnership is in line with Globe’s commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, including UN SDG No. 4 on the provision of quality education, and UN SDG No. 17, which highlights the value of partnerships in achieving the sustainable development goals.

“Globe is always looking for ways to empower Filipinos. We believe that literacy is a fundamental right that should be accessible to everyone. This partnership with NABU will help us make reading more accessible to Filipinos, so they can learn, appreciate local culture, and reach their full potential,” said Yoly Crisanto, Chief Sustainability and Corporate Communications Officer of the Globe Group.

“We are excited to be partnering with Globe on this project. This is the first time that we are venturing into the Philippine market. We are confident that this partnership will help us solve the imbalance in children’s book creation and distribution,” said Tanyella Evans, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Creator of NABU.

According to a joint report released by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the UN Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), and the World Bank titled “Where are we on Education Recovery?,” the Philippines is currently experiencing a “learning poverty” where an estimated 70% of 10-year olds in low- and middle-income countries are unable to read or comprehend a simple story.

Their findings also showed how learning has become further exacerbated by the global pandemic, driven by the disruption to in-person schooling.

Through this partnership, Globe will serve as a distribution unit for NABU’s e-books throughout the Philippines to complement students’ learning. Anyone can access the mobile app for free.

Together, the two organizations are bringing more than a hundred Filipino books, with some translated into regional languages such as Hiligaynon, Bicolano, Ilokano, Cebuano, and Maranao. NABU believes that helping children read in their local language first allows their confidence to grow. Having culturally-represented, original, and relatable stories in bilingual text increases the child’s motivation to read.

Over the next two years, Globe and NABU will seek to expand the platform’s reach by partnering with schools and learning facilities. NABU is also excited to hone the skills of Filipino creatives such as writers and illustrators to  continue telling and creating more stories that reach a wider audience.

On the Google Play Store and the App Store, you can get the NABU: Multilingual Kids Books app without charge. Visit or for further information. The Globe has consistently backed reading and comprehension. There are hundreds of age-appropriate storybooks, eLearning videos, and other resource items that may be seen online or saved for later use on the Globe eLibrary mobile app and website (, which is available in the Philippines.

DigiCon Valley and the Meaning of Startups: Mindset Over Place

The Internet & Mobile Marketing Association of the Philippines (IMMAPDigiCon )’s is the event to attend if you’re interested in marketing, advertising, or the digital sector. The event, which took place online on the conference platform ViVYD from October 10 to October 14, had DigiCon Valley as its topic this year.

The key topics of interest in the discussions were creativity, problem-solving, and the entrepreneurial spirit. There is expected to be a turning point in the Philippine start-up landscape with a rise in investments for Philippine companies in the next three years (a significantly greater pace when compared to the previous five years combined).

When asked about the focus on start-ups for this year’s theme (DigiCon Valley being, of course, reminiscent of Silicon Valley), QAIROS CEO and DigiCon co-chair Denise Haak said “We realized there is a perception of start-ups that is very pigeonholed. People seem to think that start-ups are separate things from enterprises or institutionalized organizations. But a start-up is a mindset, it’s a practice.”

The goal was to “Break down the walls of ‘we are not a start-up’ vs. ‘we are an institution,’ and show them that it’s a practice, a methodology, it’s attitude and it’s not merely a place. That’s why we have DigiCon Valley, which is not a place. It is a state of mind,” said Haak,

The idea of start-ups being a state of mind resonated with both actual start-ups and stable companies, said fellow co-chair and General Manager of FutureProof PH Trish Elamparo-Esteban. “From 2020 onwards, we all had to be agile and apply these problem-solving skills that start-ups do. We all had to be a start-up in one way or another.”


The opening keynote for DigiCon Valley went to Jake Knapp, New York Times Bestselling Author and inventor of Design Sprint, a process that uses design when bringing new products to market in five days. Credits to his name include Google Meets, Gmail, and Microsoft.

Knapp discussed Design Sprint, which is centered on the belief that solution planning can be condensed into one week, rather than a drawn-out timetable. “Focus on the key moment,” he said.


This was followed by Angkas CEO George Royeca, who discussed his company’s method of disruptive innovation. According to Royeca, there was an obvious problem of traffic and congestion and their effects, and an even more obvious opportunity to solve them. “Think of how to identify a real problem and the steps needed to solve it,” he said.

Disruptive innovation, said Royeca, is nothing more than disrupting the status quo. There can be pushback, which Royeca illustrated using the example of Elvis Presley, and which he then compared with the early days of Angkas. “I felt like Elvis,” he said, especially when they experienced market acceptance.

Like Elvis, he also experienced the naysayers from the establishment. “We were shut down, and our office was raided. Our bikes were impounded,” he said. At the government hearings, Royeca heard the testimonials of those helped by Angkas. “I never realized you could be an OFW in your city,” he said. It made him more determined to fight.


Over the next couple of days, other keynote speakers shared their tidbits of advice. Arianna Huffington, CEO of Thrive and founder of the Huffington Post talked about what she termed “collective delusion”: that to succeed, we must burn out and power through exhaustion.

For Huffington, her moment of realization happened after what could be called a series of unfortunate events. She hit her head on her desk and broke her cheekbone after a tiring day. “It helped me realize that burnout was not just my problem but a global epidemic.”

Rather than resting on her laurels and promoting her new mantra of rest and restoration through her eponymous media company, Huffington decided that the way to go was to build a “behavior change technology company.” The aim was to help people adopt healthier practices and to make them believe it was possible to go from awareness to action.

She also cautioned against completely leaving your chosen field, as it could lead to giving up on jobs or goals you truly want for yourself. “It’s not necessary,” she said. “It’s a choice between burnout and having a job with great boundaries where you do great work but where you are not defined by your job.”

Rather than work-life balance, Huffington proposed that “work-life integration” is the better prospect, due to its flexible nature. “There will be days when you need to work extra hard because you have a deadline to meet, you have a client presentation and there will be days when you may have a sick child or when you may have something at home that requires your full attention.”


Meanwhile, Nobel Peace Prize laureate and Rappler CEO Maria Ressa cautioned that misinformation is damaging to humanity. Social media’s power in influencing credibility is a double-edged sword that has repercussions in both personal and public life.

She named an MIT study that said that lies spread six times faster than truth. “When you hear the lie from so many different places and you hear it repeatedly, it’s kind of like Pavlov’s dogs, you become conditioned,” she said. “So, social media became a behavior modification system and we have seen this in many countries around the world. If you don’t have the integrity of facts, we don’t have the integrity of elections.”

How do we combat this? Ressa called on laws to protect, among others, free speech, online content moderation, user safety, and data privacy. She also believes that data privacy must be protected from those trying to profit from it.

Above all, being courageous and believing in the intrinsic good of people is needed, despite the current climate. “To be good, you have to believe it is good in the world,” she said. “Ask yourself: what will you sacrifice for the truth because your courage determines the fate of humanity?”

Globe releases a new mobile game to promote eco-friendly behavior one game at a time

In keeping with its pledges to take action on climate change, Globe today unveiled Climate Champions, a brand-new mobile game designed to motivate the company’s millions of customers to choose sustainable methods of consumption. Globe continues to promote climate education and action as a pioneer in sustainability and environmental, social, and governance (ESG) initiatives. The business uses gaming as a platform to encourage climate action through its smartphone game Globe Climate Champions.

Globe Climate Champions is a smartphone game that provides the Filipino population with helpful advice on how to lower their carbon emissions in daily activities. Players are challenged to reach the finish line as quickly as they can while having the opportunity to gain speed boosts by picking up rubbish along the way. I am so happy with this initiative of Globe because I acquired a lot of knowledge about what’s happening today. The discussion they did was such an engaging one and it is so informative, I am delighted with everything I learned. And I also enjoyed the mobile game, it is so fun to play and you can really learn from it.

Players can further shorten their run time if they select eco-friendly choices at the lifestyle quiz at the end of each round. They’ll also learn trivia on how to better care for the environment. More rounds played will unlock assorted prizes that encourage people to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle by shifting to digital transactions.

Climate Champion Game interface

The launch of Climate Champions is part of Globe’s commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs), specifically SDG 13 on Climate Action, the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) Principles, the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) Business Ambition for 1.5°C, and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Race to Zero campaign. The Globe Group is also an early participant in the Race to Zero campaign, which drives its Net Zero ambitions.

“Responding to the risks and effects of climate change is a shared responsibility. This game aims to raise awareness on what actions contribute to caring for the environment,” said Yoly Crisanto, Globe Group Chief Sustainability and Corporate Communications Officer.

Meanwhile, as esports continues to grow in the Philippines, Globe ensures that gaming becomes purposeful by matching games and gamers with relevant causes to support.

“We have always believed that gaming in the Philippines goes beyond gameplay. Globe Climate Champions empowers Filipinos to live sustainably by breaking down the long-term aspiration into short-term actions, all through a gamified experience that encourages conscious daily life changes,” said Ralph Aligada, Head of Globe Gamers and Esports.

The new Globe Climate Champions mobile game can be accessed through the New GlobeOne, GCash, and the KonsultaMD apps. Team Globe of Good brand ambassadors June Mar Fajardo and Kuya Kim Atienza are some of the first advocates to invite the public to play the Globe Climate Champions mobile game.

Encouraging the community to commit to sustainability

Coinciding with the Globe Climate Champions’ launch is Globe’s launch of the nationwide search for Globe Kali ‘Kada, which aims to look for citizens championing sustainable practice

“As we launch our nationwide search for Kali ‘Kada, we are sending the message that anyone with a true heart for the environment can be a champion for change. We are excited to help uncover a new breed of changemakers who will inspire others to commit to a more sustainable lifestyle,” said RG Orense, Globe Digital and Social Channel Strategy Head.

To lower its operational emissions, Globe has installed more than 8,500 Green Network Solutions around the country. In addition, it has converted 14 important facilities to renewable energy through Retail Electricity Supply Agreements (RESA) with renewable energy producers.

As we continue to pursue innovations in sustainable manufacturing, we are proud to announce that more than 90% of the new Galaxy Buds2 Pro is made with recycled materials. The new Galaxy Z series also incorporates ocean-bound plastics into key components and 100 percent recycled paper for its packaging.
