The VILLAR SIPAG AWARDS ON POVERTY REDUCTION was launched on August 2, 2013 at the VillarSIPAG (Social Institute for Poverty Alleviation and Governance). It was officially launched to honor community enterprises that have been instruments in reducing poverty. The event was led by the Founder of Villar SIPAG and former Senate President Manny B. Villar, Senator Cynthia A. Villar and Las Pinas Representative Mark A. Villar.
The Villar SIPAG Awards aims to recognize community enterprises as models of good practices in poverty reduction, to document community enterprises through SIPAG Poverty Knowledge Management Center and to share valuable information through action research, capacity building and seminars.
The process started with either direct application or nomination by any individual or organization. All entries received were assessed for eligibility to apply. There were series of screenings, site validations and interviews conducted by a team of validators in order to select the Ten Most Outstanding Community Enterprises and Ten Most Promising Community Enterprises.
The Villar SIPAG Awards will be conducted annually to recognize best practices of the community enterprise in increasing and reducing poverty. The criteria for selecting the winners for each category effectiveness, significance, financial viability sustainability and adaptability.

Each of the 10 winners for Outstanding Community Enterprise received 250,000 while 10 winners for Most Promising Community Enterprises each got 150,000. And SAN JOSE KOOP was one of the beneficiary of the 250,000 cash and plaque of appreciation from Villar SIPAG.
