30.Jul.2012.Mon 12:00:00am

Congratulations to BARP Foundation President/ CEO Prof. Federico Balanag, a recipient of the Gawad Geny Lopez Bayaning Pilipino 2012 (Individual Category)!

The Bayaning Pilipino Awards is an annual search for modern-day heroes and shall continue to make a difference in spite of their limitations. Launched in 1995, it was envisioned by the late Don Eugenio Lopez, Jr. for which this award is now named, to give recognition to ordinary folks who had done heroic acts and extraordinary deeds. Thus with his acquiantance with Fr. Nilo E. Tanalega, SJ Excecutive Director of UGAT Foundation, Inc. this noble project was born.

The Bayaning Pilipino Awards, which is envisioned to be a yearly affair, comes as a fitting tribute to fine Filipino values of humanitarianism, industry, determination and dedication to public service. It is intended to hold in high public esteem "existing heroes who have rendered service to the Filipino people." "The heroes that we want to recognize now are those who are living and those whom the ordinary people can emulate, "ABS-CBN management stressed."

As envisioned, the annual search for the Bayaning Pilipino Awardees will promote Filipino values by highlighting their accomplishments in the field of public service. The project also forms part of the network's efforts to "reciprocate the unyielding loyalty of our subscribers and other supporters" as reflected by excellent performance ratings given the company by prestigious industry surveys.
