Australia Announces Two New Business Partnerships for Gender Equality and Improved Mental Health in the Philippines

1 September 2021

The Australian Embassy is pleased to announce two new business partnerships in the Philippines under the Australian Government’s Business Partnerships Platform (BPP).

The BPP supports direct partnerships between the Australian Government and businesses to promote inclusive recovery from COVID-19, while also providing sustainable commercial returns for businesses.

“By partnering with businesses, the Australian Government can help provide vital work and income opportunities that will foster the inclusive economic recovery of the Philippines and the Indo-Pacific region,” said Australian Ambassador to the Philippines Steven J Robinson AO.

The two new business partnerships are:

Data upskilling for freelance workers – A partnership with the leading online data upskilling firm, Eskwelabs; and the largest entrepreneurship and freelancing network for stay-at-home mothers in the Philippines, FHMoms; which aims to provide women freelance workers who have been impacted by COVID-19, with skills needed for high-value digital work opportunities that are increasingly in demand in the modern economy.


Digital mental health services – A partnership with Mind You Mental Health (MYMH), a mental health technology company that provides mental health services to staff of large companies in the Philippines, which aims to significantly increase availability of psychological services in the country to better support Filipinos who are suffering from mental illness.

The BPP reflects the importance of the private sector in the COVID-19 recovery.
