The National Power Corporation Ladies Foundation, Inc., or NPC-LFI is a socio-civic organization composed of the wives of NPC executives and managers, NPC female managers and employees.
As a charity organization, it implements social assistance and development projects for those in dire need such as victims of natural calamities, the poorest of the poor communities and other organizations that provide aid to the less fortunate. With its projects like medical and dental missions, blood donation, disaster relief operations and other fund-raising activities, the NPC-LFI continues to be National Power’s partner in its thrusts for Corporate Social Responsibility.
NPC-LFI was originally known as the NPC Ladies Circle, which was founded in 1978, led by its pioneering president, Ms. Luisita Itchon. It was first conceptualized as a support system for the men of NPC who were busily dedicating their careers in empowering the nation through National Power’s projects. It was then renamed as NPC-LFI during the term of President Joy Delgado, wherein it acquired an independent and juridical personality by registering it with the Securities and Exchange Commission as socio-civic organization.
While the Foundation’s leadership underwent a lot of changes over the years, the NPC-LFI’s core objectives remain the same: “To provide its less fortunate beneficiaries critical assistance in times of need through its fundraising and social responsibility projects.”
NPC LFI Programs and Projects
NPC-LFI sponsors blood donation activities in support of the health programs of the Philippine Department of Health. It encourages the participation of National Power employees countrywide by conducting mobile blood donation programs at the Head Office and its various field offices. NPC-LFI continues this noble endeavor by lining up blood donation programs for 2011 scheduled at Angat Hydro Power Plant, SPUG-Minuyan Field Office, SPUG-Visayas Field Office and Mindanao Generations headquarters. NPC-LFI is a four-time Libulan Awardee of the Philippine Blood Center of the Department of Health. This award is given to organizations whose bloodletting activities have reached 100-199 donations. Not resting on its laurels, NPC-LFI further aspires to achieve the Likabutan award which requires 400 blood donations within a one-year period. It aims to conduct its bloodletting programs more extensively by soliciting participation from all NPC plants, offices and facilities, which in turn, will yield more blood donations and help more beneficiaries needing blood transfusions.
