Globe Group said Monday it teamed up with the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) to bridge the gap between telecommunications, mobile wallets and financial technology with various government social programs.

“Globe’s technology solutions will allow scale, transparency and convenience in providing social services to those who need them most,” said Globe president and chief executive Ernest Cu.

“This partnership is crucial in ensuring that through technology advancements, government services can be delivered in a more efficient manner, fostering active citizenship to assist marginalized sectors supported by the DSWD,” he said.

DSWD Secretary Rex Gatchalian said the collaboration amplifies the agency’s capacity to better serve society.

“It stands as a testament to the transformative power of technology in driving social change. Such partnerships are pivotal in bolstering government efforts to provide enhanced social services in our increasingly digital world,” Gatchalian said.

Globe, through the Hapag Movement, is joining “Walang Gutom 2027” to address involuntary hunger and improve national food provisions. Hapag Movement is also integrated into the DSWD’s sustainable livelihood program to uplift vulnerable communities through upskilling initiatives.

Other Globe initiatives include network enhancements in DSWD’s areas of influence, and leveraging Globe’s telehealth solution KonsultaMD to improve DSWD’s health services.
