Handum Sa Paeaabuton Scholarship Programme translates to ‘dream of growth, for the future’. The programme was established in 2009 when Shangri-La Boracay began to work with Yapak High School.

Outstanding graduates are given full scholarships to aid their pursuit of a college education. In addition to these scholarships, the hotel supports the enhancement of the school’s facilities and workshops for the local community on topics of hygiene and sanitation.

News 

Recently, the resort’s General Manager and staff visited the Lamberto H. Tirol National High School in Barangay Yapak, Boracay Island for the special reason of bringing new text books.

Last year, the resort supplied 100 books. Since then, 68 books have been added covering various learning topics from history of The Philippines and Filipino to mathematics, science and more. The average student-book ratio is now 1:3, whereas previously, text books were scarce and shared by several students.   The new books were bought from the contributions of hotel guests and employees. There is natural joy in sharing and inspiring others to read and continuously learn.

Cohabitation is key to preserving our natural environment

Cohabitation is key to preserving our natural environment

In line with our commitment to biodiversity conservation, the group launched SANCTUARY, Shangri-La's Care for Nature Project.

At Shangri-La Boracay, there is an Eco Centre where guests can get educational information about the island's rich flora and fauna. The resort also supports the cause of Friends of the Flying Foxes, a non-profit organisation that protects the natural habitat of the endangered fruit-eating bats of Boracay.

A few meters into the sea from the resort's private beachfront is the Marine Sanctuary Restoration Project. Artificial reefs are lowered into the sites to spur the re-growth of sea life and coral reefs. The resort is always engaging the employees and guests to join the weekly beach clean-ups.

As a steward of the community, Shangri-La Boracay supports the indigenous Ati tribe of the island by employing Carmen, a native who weaves Boracay handicrafts at the Eco-Center. Proceeds go to the livelihood fund of the Ati community.
