Over 9,000 books worth Php4.5 million were distributed recently by Atimonan One Energy, Inc. (A1E) and Rex Bookstore, Inc., to public high schools supervised by the Department of Education (DepEd) in Atimonan, Quezon.
Atimonan National Comprehensive High School, Malinao Ilaya National High School, Maligaya National High School, Malusak National High School, San Rafael National High School, and Balubad Integrated High School received the books which are now being used by schoolteachers to develop modules and other e-learning materials for over 4,600 high school students.
The donation topped up the P2 million worth of books that A1E and Rex Bookstore have distributed so far to 22 public elementary schools in Atimonan last year.
The project is part of both companies’ educational trust to push continuous learning despite the challenges posed by the pandemic.
A1E is a wholly owned subsidiary of Meralco PowerGen Corporation, which is a power generation company building a 1,200 megawatts power plant to utilize high efficiency, low emission (HELE) technology, the country’s first ultra-supercritical coal-fired power plant.
