Foundation Trustees


Maria Lourdes “Bambina” D. B. Buenaventura

Bambina has been active in many civic and social organizations, as a “Kagawad” in Barangay Forbes Park, as a director of Kasiyahan Homes, and as board member of the Manila Polo Club and the Manila Gold Ladies Chapter.

In the late 90’s, Bambina organized the first call center training school in the Philippines. This led her to search for new methods of improving English proficiency. She is now involved in the distribution of English Language software products and is the Philippine representative of the Test of English for International Communications (TOEIC). Her advocacy for promoting English proficiency has gotten her involved in education-related volunteer work such as teaching English to scholars of the San Antonio parish and sponsoring English reading programs for day-care centers.

Apart from education, Bambina sees healthcare as another area where she can make a contribution. Having had personal experience in caring for cancer patients, Bambina believes in the Carewell program. She looks forward to being more involved in generating greater interest in support of Carewell activities.
