June 18, 2015

Knowing the importance of a conducive environment necessary for the learning and growth of the students, Davao Light and Power Co.

, an Aboitiz-owned company, geared up B. Carpio National High School (BCNHS) in Buhangin, Davao City and Tanglaw 3A Elementary School in B. Dujali, Davao del Norte last May 16 for this year's school opening.

This is Davao Light's support to the Department of Education's (DepEd) annual Brigada Eskwela or National Schools Maintenance Week with theme “Tayo Para sa Kalinisan at Kahandaan ng Ating mga Paaralan”.

Around 200 employees gathered in BCNHS to help repaint the 4 school buildings or a total of 16 classrooms. BCNHS Principal Evelyn Magno led the opening ceremony together with the school faculty, staff, students and alumni. Buhangin Brgy. Captain Jimmy C. Salvador was also present to grace the event.

“Davao Light has always been very supportive to our school. For this year, we are a recipient of three projects in which one of these is the support to our Brigada Eskwela activity.

Other support that they will give us this year are the computer donation and the electrical laboratory. We could not ask for more with the generosity that the Davao Light has shown to our school.

” said Principal Magno.

Simultaneously, 19 employees from the Davao Light Panabo Branch helped refurbish and clean the 4 classrooms in Tanglaw Elementary School.

“Education is very important as it prepares the next generation for the future. We in Davao Light have been a product of education. This is why Davao Light together with the Aboitiz Foundation gives utmost importance to projects that would really promote growth and learning to all our students.

” said Arturo Milan, Davao Light's EVP and COO.

The Davao Light employees’ participation in the Brigada activities is not only a manifestation of support to the DepEd but also a way of engaging themselves in corporate social responsibility projects undertaken by the company.
