Qualfon, a mission-driven business process outsourcing (BPO) company and global provider of contact center services, and 42 employee volunteers removed weeds and shrubs across a 1-hectare reforestation area of the Mananga Watershed and Forest Reserve in Cebu, Philippines. This maintenance phase of work marks the next milestone in the company’s two-year commitment to assist the Philippine Business for Social Progress (PBSP) in rehabilitating 29,062 hectares of land.

In late February, 42 Qualfon Cebu employee volunteers joined six PBSP representatives and 16 members of the Armed Forces removing weeds and brush that were crowding out tree seedlings planted back in July 2016. Within Qualfon’s adopted plantation, volunteers also replanted any dead seedlings to ensure an 85% survival rate. The continued care is just part of Qualfon’s pledge to the reforestation project.
