OSF is the brainchild of the late David M. Consunji who wanted to give back to his hometown by helping the poor. It is in Bataan that his roots where strongly planted and it is the same place he wanted to grow by empowering the community.
Realizing the value of education – through formal means in schools and in teaching livelihood, Consunji collaborated with 11 other incorporators to create a foundation that would empower the communities of Orani, Samal, and Hermosa. On July 4, 2001, the Orani Suhay Foundation was formally registered at the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
The foundation has two main arms – the Suhay Scholarship and SSUWAK Livelihood. Unique in its proposition, Suhay Scholarship aids qualified students in their final year to complete their college education and those who are reviewing for their board examinations.
SSUWAK Livelihood is a program for the poor communities to create income and alleviate poverty.
