Ayala Coop, FHL partner to bring MyLibrary to CENTEX Manila

The Ayala Multi-Purpose Cooperative, an institutional cooperative for the employees of the Ayala group of companies and its subsidiaries, recently entered into a partnership with the Filipinas Heritage Library to develop the library of the Center of Excellence in Public Elementary Education (CENTEX) Manila. The CENTEX Manila Library was inaugurated on September 16.



Through FHL’s flagship program, MyLibrary, Ayala Coop funded the development of the CENTEX Manila Library. Fernando Zobel de Ayala, president of Ayala Corporation and co–vice chairman of Ayala Foundation, was present during the inauguration of the library.

FZA affirmed that it is every child’s right to have access to books and libraries. He also congratulated the people who had worked together to develop the CENTEX Library. In particular he noted that the library was the product of cooperation among two Ayala institutions—Ayala Coop and Ayala Foundation, of which both FHL and CENTEX are a part. FZA said: “This project is a testament to the fact that the spirit of partnership and collaboration within the Ayala group of companies is alive.”

Located on the second floor of the CENTEX building in Tondo, Manila, the library will serve the entire student population of the school. It will also open its doors to the nearby Gregorio del Pilar Elementary School.

Also present at the inauguration were Randy Maranan, Ayala Coop chairman and BPI Foundation executive director; Lourdes Orosa, Ayala Coop general manager; John Philip Orbeta and Eliezer Tanlapco, Ayala Coop directors; Kit Zobel; Maritoni Ortigas, FHL director; Ramon Miranda, CENTEX director; Suzanne Yupangco, FHL deputy director; Dr. Narcisa Santa Ana, assistant schools superintendent of the Department of Education (Division of Manila); and Ma.
