One of the pioneering Christian-Muslim public schools in Davao Oriental is among the recipients of the 50 brand-new computer sets recently donated by Mindanao electric cooperatives in partnership with Aboitiz Power Corporation and Aboitiz Foundation Inc. (AFI).

The computer donations, which also included computer desks and chairs, were separately turned over to Bobon National High School in Davao Oriental, Molave Regional Pilot School in Zamboanga Del Sur, Lubilan Elementary School in Misamis Oriental, Nasipit National High School in Agusan Del Norte, and San Roque Central Elementary School in Surigao Del Sur during the last quarter of 2016.

Each school received 10 brand-new computer sets with desks and chairs. Each school also received a multi-functional printer.

AboitizPower and AFI have partnered with Zamboanga Del Sur I Electric Cooperative (ZAMSURECO-I), Misamis Oriental I Rural Electric Service Cooperative (MORESCO-I), Davao Oriental Electric Cooperative (DORECO), Agusan Del Norte Electric Cooperative (ANECO), and Surigao Del Sur I Electric Cooperative (SURSECO-I) for the computer donations.

In one of the turnover ceremonies, MORESCO-I General Manager Julie B. Real thanked AboitizPower and AFI for helping and reaching out to communities, especially to public schools located in far-flung areas of the electric cooperative’s franchise locations.

ANECO Board President Nolie Namocatcat and SURSECO-I General Manager Joceler Moralda, during their respective computer turnover events, emphasized that they are one with AboitizPower not only in providing reliable and ample power supply to communities, but also in its commitment to explore better ways to integrate good social development into their business operations.

Apart from computer donations, AboitizPower and AFI in cooperation with Misamis Occidental I Electric Cooperative (MOELCI-I) and Zamboanga Del Norte Electric Cooperative (ZANECO) also updated the electrical wiring of classrooms in Mobod Integrated School in Misamis Occidental and Napuyan Elementary School in Zamboanga Del Norte.

Officials from the Department of Education, local government units, and beneficiary schools were all very grateful to the donors of computer units, which will help them in producing promising students and in building a better future for the next generation through quality education.

In September this year, Aboitiz Power Corporation and Aboitiz Foundation Inc. donated another 50 brand-new computer sets to New Sagay Elementary School in Zamboanga Sibugay, Tikalaan National High School in Bukidnon and Mulu and Muluan Elementary School in Mercedes, Zamboanga City, Piñan Central School in Zamboanga del Norte and the JH Cerilles State College in San Miguel, Zamboanga del Sur.
