Bayan Academy for Social Entrepreneurship and Human Resource Development (BASE-HRD or Bayan Academy) is a social development organization offering entrepreneurship, management and education training programs and services for development institutions, cooperatives, banks, educational institutions and micro and small enterprises, as well as livelihood and skills training courses. Primarily established to equip ABS-CBN Bayan Foundation’s micro borrower clients with the necessary skills to become small and even medium-sized entrepreneurs and also equip their relatives with necessary skills in order to obtain employment. At the same time, it propagates ABS-CBN Bayan Foundation’s human resource training program which puts emphasis on values formation and accountability.
Established in 2008, Bayan Academy grew out of the education and training initiatives of the ABS-CBN Bayan Foundation, Inc. (ABFI) under its Enabling Network for the Upliftment of Filipino Families (ENUFF). It was registered with Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in January 2009 as a non-stock, non-profit educational subsidiary of ABFI that promotes the democratization of entrepreneurship and management education in the country.
More than a training facility, Bayan Academy is a learning hub and laboratory for the development of new learning methodologies and technologies in teaching entrepreneurship and management, as well as innovative learning materials that cater to the entrepreneurial poor. Bayan Academy is envisioned to become the Center for Social Entrepreneurship, not only in the Philippines but in Asia.
Calling itself a “Servicer of Servicers”, Bayan Academy operates through a network of like-minded partners in social development who want to help build the Filipino nation from the ground up. It develops programs by pooling together different expertise and resources from among its partners to respond to the demands of the market, particularly its clients in microfinance and microenterprise, most of who are at the bottom of the pyramid.
Bayan Academy has developed different modalities to fit the learning preferences of its target beneficiaries – from tailor-fit livelihood courses through corporate partnerships, to entrepreneurship for the masses, workers assistance, technical and livelihood courses for communities, a culinary facility and technopreneurship. Bayan Academy’s 3 Es of Entrepreneurship, Education and Employment
