MGen-GBP volunteers repainting the school gate and fence.
Fully embracing its commitment to community development, Meralco PowerGen Corporation-Global Business Power Corporation (MGen-GBP), through subsidiaries Panay Energy Development Corporation (PEDC) and Panay Power Corporation (PPC), actively participated in the recent 2023 Brigada Eskwela activity at La Paz I Elementary School in Iloilo City.
Brigada Eskwela, an annual undertaking organized by the Department of Education (DepEd), serves as a rallying call for both public and private sectors to unite and prepare schools for the commencement of the academic year. This initiative encompasses a range of activities, including school repainting and rectification of essential school utilities.
The participation of MGen-GBP in this meaningful endeavor underlines its steadfast commitment to fostering a conducive learning environment for students and educators alike. MGen-GBP also extended its encouragement to its scholars, partners, and affiliates to join the cause, resulting in a turnout of 140 dedicated volunteers.
“Our participation in the 2023 Brigada Eskwela is our commitment to nation building and to our companyâ€™s value of â€œMALASAKITâ€. It is our hope that through this volunteering activity, we are contributing to make the studentsâ€™ school conducive to learning and development”
– Antonio J. Cabalhug, Jr., FVP for Panay Site Operations.
“Since then, MGen-GBP and its subsidiaries are our constant stakeholders providing much support to La Paz I Elementary School. We now have a stable electricity supply because MGen-GBP previously repaired our electrical wirings. This year, I have goosebumps to know that our school gate and front fence will be repainted by the MGen-GBP volunteers”
– Dr. Girlie V. Pautan, Principal, La Paz I Elementary School & Supervisor, District of La Paz.
