Global Marine Group is helping to improve lives around the world. We promote stronger and more sustainable communicates through funding and volunteering within our local communities.
Currently the primary charity supported by the company is the Ninos Pag Asa Centre, based in Olongapo, Philippines. It is an orphanage for those who are not cared for nor looked after by any other agency.
It is authorised and licensed to operate as a social work agency giving medical assistance, educational programmes, skills training and community based rehabilitation. The centre not only looks after those who are residents, but also educates and assists other children and adults in the local community.
Global Marine Group has been supporting the centre since Cable Retriever, currently the company’s vessel supporting the maintenance region, arrived in 1998. The Captains of the Cable Retriever, together with the Make a Difference Team (MAD), in the UK take responsibility for supporting the orphanage and organise many activities to this end throughout the year.
Every year Global Marine Group provides funds for meals, electricity, water and hygiene supplies as well as school tuition fees, and help to make Christmas a special time of year for all the children.
The cause is close to the hearts of many of our colleagues across the globe, and in addition to the business’s support, the team at Global Marine Group recently took part in ‘Orphanage Week’ and raised over £1,700 for five computers for the children who are blind and visually impaired to complete their schoolwork, whilst the schools were closed during the pandemic.
