Bantugon Alay Kapwa Foundation Inc. (BAKFI) takes into consideration the most fundamental aspects of a society – health, education, environment, livelihood – all for the benefit of its primary component, the people.
The foundation extends assistance to the needy with the collaborated effort and selfless acts of the affluent ones. BAKFI’s founder, Miguel Leonilo “Nilo” M. Bantugon grew up watching his politician father extends help to the people. Not wanting to enter politics, he delved on growing his own enterprising business.
Sixteen years ago, he went to Italy and lead the Filipino community there. When Nilo went back to the Philippines, he started doing small projects to bring together the less fortunate ones. One of the projects he intended to prioritize is the reviving of a river in Bauan through his coordination with the barangay captains.
In September 2010, Bantugon Alay Kapwa Foundation Inc. was officially registered as a legitimate foundation.
It is the goal of the foundation to be able to provide efficient access and effective mechanism which can facilitate development and progress of the less fortunate and encourage the participation of other privileged individuals and groups in its endeavors.
A vibrant organization that is able to multiply the effects of individual contributions to alleviate poverty through structured programs and unified efforts.
