Grab Philippines together with the City government of Navotas, has announced its partnership which aims to leverage on Grab’s platform and provide livelihood opportunities to Navotenos in helping them recover from the impacts of the pandemic.

At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Grab has launched its GrabBayanihan program with the aim of helping Filipinos respond and recover from the pandemic. While GrabBayanihan has delivered protection and support to Filipinos during the early stages of the pandemic, Grab is again calling on the spirit of bayanihan – this time through local government partners across Metro Manila.

“With responsible use of technology as well as our enduring partnership with the City of Navotas, we hope to continue helping our Navotenos who have been greatly affected by the pandemic get back on their feet through the many livelihood opportunities available on our Grab platform”, said Brian Cu, Grab Philippines President.

“This is a welcome opportunity for Navoteños who strive to support their families amid the pandemic. The GrabBayanihan program not only provides livelihood to our people; it also brings hope that life will become better if we help and lift each other up,” Mayor Toby Tiangco said.

Grab will be providing livelihood opportunities to around 500 tricycle drivers and displaced workers in the City of Navotas, whereby they will be trained and onboarded as GrabFood and GrabExpress delivery-partners. Likewise, Grab will be providing market access to at least 500 of the greatly affected MSMEs in the city so that they may continue operating their businesses digitally through the Grab app.

Under the GrabBayanihan Socio-economic recovery program, individuals who are interested in being part of Grab’s Food or Express Delivery Fleet must be:

1. A resident of the City of Navotas;
2. At least twenty one (21) years up to fifty (50) years of age;
3. Owns and knows how to operate a smartphone
4. Owns and/or operates either of the following which can be used for delivery: a tricycle, a motorcycle, or a bicycle;
5. In possession of a Driver’s License issued by the Land Transportation Office, and is valid for at least 21 days before the expiration date.
6. For motorcycle owners, they must present their registration documents such as:

a. Official Receipt and Certificate of Registration;
b. If the vehicle registration is not owned by the user, they must present any supporting documents as follows:

• Authorization Letter of the owner with Xerox Copy of valid ID with 3 specimen signatures,
• Notarized Deed of Sale and Reposition Certificate

Meanwhile, small business owners who wish to be part of the program must have the necessary business permits and other requirements issued by the City of Navotas.

Interested parties are highly encouraged to prepare their documents and to visit their Public Employment Service Office (PESO) for an initial assessment.
