The Stairway Foundation is a charity based in Puerto Galera, Philippines. They deliver a wide range of community service activities, including environmental awareness and protection programmes.

The Marshall Foundation supports their Sea Adventure School, and funded the construction of a boat named “Berge Apo”. This boat serves as a floating classroom – taking local children to different sites around the beautiful Puerto Galera Bay.

2,000 Young People Trained Annually

Each year, more than 2,000 young people participate in the Sea Adventure School to enhance their understanding about marine biodiversity and ocean conservation. The programme has been endorsed by the Philippines’ National Department of Education as an official part of the science curriculum in the local school district.

19 Berge Bulk Colleagues Involved

In October 2022, a team of 19 Berge Bulk colleagues — including 10 Junior Officers, 5 Senior Officers, and 4 shore team members — joined the Sea Adventure School and experienced first-hand the importance of marine ecosystems such as coral reefs, seagrass, and mangroves. As part of the programme, participants also cleaned up a local mangrove forest that was congested with rubbish. Feedback from participants was overwhelmingly positive, and we hope to do more trips in 2023.
