SUPER app Grab has partnered with the Presidential Commission for the Urban Poor (PCUP) to provide livelihood opportunities to at least 10,000 members of urban poor communities.

Grab President Brian P. Cu said his group can help connect these people to car and motorcycle owners looking for drivers and motorcycle riders for Grab’s different verticals such as GrabCar, GrabTaxi, GrabExpress and GrabFood. 

“We are humbled that we are in a rather unique position to influence inclusive growth across multiple sectors, and do our part to ease poverty in the urban communities of the Philippines. Grab has always committed itself to champion the best interests of the Filpino people, through our platform and the opportunities that come with our growth, every Filipinos’ success is a success for Grab,” he said. 

Grab is also supporting the PCUP’s nationwide job fair in Metro Manila, Baguio City, Pampanga, Cebu, Bacolod, Iloilo, Davao City and Cagayan de Oro. 

“Performing partners from PCUP-endorsed communities will be incentivized. The price of success is hard work — and with Grab, the perseverance of our partners is always being reciprocated,” Cu added. 

Cu explained that Grab shall conduct and facilitate driver training and onboarding sessions during the caravan. 

Successful applicants who have submitted complete documents and have undergone training from Grab will be matched with operators looking for GrabCar and GrabTaxi drivers, while motorcycle riders will be assigned to GrabFood and GrabExpress delivery services.
