Pilipinas Shell: Empowering the future of livelihood
The name Pilipinas Shell is usually associated with fuels and lubricants. Rightfully so as it has been providing Filipinos with these products for a number of decades. Yet Pilipinas Shell can also stand for livelihood. More specifically, helping Filipinos find a viable source of livelihood via its Future Festival 2, which focused on the Future of Livelihood.
The said Future Festival was an online webinar that gathered top industry experts from government and the private sector who gave their insights about how to empower Filipinos to become entrepreneurs, as well as giving them the opportunity to make change happen for a brighter tomorrow.
Of course, the fuel company cannot do this alone. It has teamed up with entities such as the Department of Trade and Industry’s Philippine Trade Training Center, which trains would-be business owners on how to properly set up their chosen trade. It has likewise joined forces with a host of non-profit organizations such as QBO and Rags to Riches who likewise do all they can to help others like them start something that can secure their future.
This source of income can literally be anything under the sun. For the automotive sector, for instance, one can set up businesses such as:
- Auto detailing
- Car accessories shop
- Automotive repair and service
- Automotive parts supply
- Automotive restoration
For those that are looking to put up something that is more future proof, endeavors that come to mind could be:
- EV charging stations
- EV conversion shops
And the list goes on. All you need to do is research and find something that suits your fancy. With this, Shell and its partners hope to give Filipinos a brighter future.
