HERO Foundation, Incorporated, is a non-stock, not-for-profit organized by the late President Corazon C. Aquino in 1988 with the Armed Forces of the Philippines Chief of Staff General Renato S. De Villa, who called on the business community to respond to the growing needs of the families our “heroes” have left behind.
HERO stands for Help, Educate and Rear Orphans. Since then, the foundation has been providing educational support to military orphans. The financial support helps keep orphans in school as it covers much-needed requirements such as school supplies, transportation, meals, and even a portion of their tuition fee.
For 34 years now, the foundation has not wavered in its commitment to provide educational support to the children of our soldiers and ensure that they have a better chance at a brighter future.
