Bounty Agro Ventures, Inc. (BAVI) President Ronald Mascariñas today received Special Olympics Asia Pacific President and Managing Director Dipak Natali in a brief meeting in Pasig City.
Natali came to thank Mascariñas for the support which BAVI is extending to Special Olympics Asia Pacific.
“We truly appreciate all the work that your company is doing to help people with intellectual disabilities [PIDs],” he said.
BAVI, through Chooks-to-Go, recently rolled out the nationwide Kaya ‘Yan, Manok ng Bayan campaign, which seeks to engage PIDs in sports and recruit them to BAVI.
On January 25, the campaign held its first Unified Basketball Clinic in Pasig City. More than 130 PIDs, their families, Special Olympics volunteers, BAVI employees, and national 3×3 basketball team members played together in drills and games.
“We are happy and thankful to Special Olympics for opening our eyes [to the unique abilities of PIDs],” said BAVI President Mascarinas.
Accompanying Natali were Special Olympics Asia Pacific consultant Kaye Samson and senior director for finance Jericho Mercado.
