Davao Light tours students from the Resources for the Blind in the Cleanergy Park

June 18, 2015

Doing something to help Mother Earth is a privilege for everyone even those individuals who are physically challenged. Last May 22, Davao Light and Power Co. welcomed students and faculty from the Resources for the Blind (RBI), Inc. in the Cleanergy Park in Punta Dumalag, Matina Aplaya.

The students, who were assisted by their guardians, together with the RBI teachers and the scholars from the Department of Education toured the newly opened Cleanergy Park and planted mangrove seedlings along the seashore.

This is part of RBI's educational tour intended to expose the blind students with new activities that would further enhance their other senses and at the same time increase their environmental awareness.

“We are grateful that RBI chose the Cleanergy to be part of their educational trip. Though the students will not be able to see the beauty of this park, I know that what they will take home with them is the fact that once in their lives they have been part in making a sustainable environment for their own generation.

” said Fermin Edillon, Davao Light Community Relations Manager.

“Our students cannot see things with their naked-eye but their minds and hearts are not blinded on what the world needs from us to help save Mother Earth through our own little ways.

” said Daisy Corpuz, RBI Preschool teacher.

For requests to visit the Cleanergy Park, please call 229-3572 or visit Davao Light Lanang office.
