How are we paying it forward

PayMaya It Forward


PayMayaItForward is a social movement initiative of PayMaya Philippines aiming to inspire the Filipino to “Pay It Forward” this holiday season by doing random acts of kindness. As a company, PayMaya Philippines’ own act of kindness is to match the amount of cashback given to users in the ongoing 1-10-100 #ScantoPay Cashback promo. (Per DTI Fair Trade Permit No. FTEB 23069, Series of 2019), and donate it in support of youth education.

Our partners in championing kindness

Gawad Kalinga and Seed Philippines


For this promo, the PayMaya It Forward campaign beneficiary is Gawad Kalinga SEED, a non-profit learning institution that gives a chance to young people from poor communities across the country to pursue a two-year Technical Education and Skills Development Authority-accredited course on social entrepreneurship. 

It is the first school for social entrepreneurship for the poor which serve as a model for rural development through innovators. SEED prepares students to create social enterprises that will develop rural areas through rural and wealth creation. It serves as a pilot that will be replicated to provide quality education to thousands in communities across the Philippines.
