APRI supports DepEd's Brigada Eskwela

June 18, 2015

To create more conducive learning spaces for the students, AP Renewables Inc. (APRI) MakBan, a wholly-owned subsidiary of AboitizPower, through the Aboitiz Foundation, participated in the Brigada Eskwela at San Vicente Elementary School in Sto. Tomas, Batangas last May 16.

Brigada Eskwela or the National Schools Maintenance Week is an annual country-wide event of the Department of Education (DepEd) to prepare schools for the opening of classes on June.

32 APRI MakBAn team members geared up together with its five TechVoc scholars and school’s faculty members to repaint the exterior and interior walls and desks of four classrooms, which will be occupied by approximately 160 Grade 1 students. The beneficiary school is one of the nine public elementary schools situated in the seven host geothermal barangays of APRI Makban.

In previous years, San Vicente Elementary School also benefited from various CSR programs such as classroom construction, scholarships, cleanliness drive, donation of library kits, and teacher’s training on Information Management System.

APRI team members annually participate in the Brigada Eskwela. Since 2011, schools in the barangays of Bitin in Bay and Sitio Tamlong in Limao, Calauan, Laguna and Sta. Elena and San Jose in Sto. Tomas, Batangas have been reached by this initiative.

Meanwhile, 27 APRI Tiwi Geothermal Power Plant employees volunteered to refurbish three classrooms of Biyong Elementary School in Tiwi, Albay nurturing a total of 279 students last May 9.

“Education is one the key focus areas of our CSR programs in Aboitiz to help build goodwill in the communities where we operate. Come June 1, more than 1,000 students of San Vicente Elementary School will hopefully enjoy the new look and feel of their 2nd home and will be encouraged to study well,” shared APRI President and Chief Operating Officer Lino M. Bernardo.

AboitizPower remains true to its commitment of social responsibility and building good corporate citizenship by supporting the Philippine public education through the improvement of learning facilities. Moreover, its education, environment, enterprise development, health & well-being among other programs are geared towards the improvement of the lives of the Filipino nation.
