The RAMON V. DEL ROSARIO SR. AWARD FOR NATION BUILDING is a project of Junior Chamber International Manila (formerly, Manila Jaycees, Inc.), in cooperation with the Asian Institute of Management's Center for Corporate Social Responsibility, with the purpose of recognizing individuals who best exemplify outstanding corporate citizenship and have an underlying passion for nation-building. These achievements should be manifested through a keen focus in performing activities considered within the ambit of CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY, all of which were passions, traits and characteristics exemplified by the late Ambassador.
This annual award hopes to recognize men and women who have proven themselves worthy of honor and emulation, and should demonstrate such outstanding traits as Entrepreneurial Spirit, National or Global Impact, Corporate Citizenship and Social Responsibility.
The award is named in honor of Junior Chamber International Manila's founding president and the acknowledged "Father of Philippine Modern Industry." With its grand launch in September 2009, it aims to be the premier awards program of Junior Chamber International Manila, as it celebrates six decades of providing development opportunities for young people to create positive change within their communities.
