Shell: Fueling dreams through education

Nov 08, 2017

For a developing country like the Philippines, education is a critical engine in powering progress. For most Filipinos, it may be the only key to survival and getting better prospects in life.

Since 2007, Shell’s nationwide scholarship program “Gas Mo, Bukas Ko” (GMBK) aims to enhance
the skills of forecourt service attendants as well as dependents of its Pepeng Pasada drivers’ club. More than just providing motorists with smarter products for clean and efficient transport, Shell has undertaken such innovative methods in developing the potential of its people that enable them to provide cutting-edge services as well.

With over 1,600 scholars, GMBK continues to provide learning and capacity-building training programs that enhance employment and livelihood opportunities, as well as develop their values and character. In fact, 85 percent of these scholars have taken on bigger responsibilities as forecourt service champions, while some got promoted to higher positions.
