BACOLOD CITY, April 8 (PNA) — The National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) and Central Negros Electric Cooperative, Inc. (CENECO) recently partnered in a corporate social responsibility (CSR) program by donating educational equipment to a local elementary school in Negros Occidental.
NGCP and CENECO turned over three sets of computers with tables, and two sets of printers to the Cabatangan Elementary School in Talisay City, Negros Occidental.
The event was witnessed by the barangay council, teachers, parents and students of the beneficiary school.
“Gone are the days when we use drawings or posters to teach our children about computer technology. Now, we can use real computers. Through these computers, we can produce technically competitive pupils,” said school principal Nemia Laud.
Nelson F. Cabangon, NGCP corporate affairs department head, thanked CENECO for its willingness to partner in the project.
“With this project, NGCP hopes to contribute to the eradication of poverty in our own little way,” he said.
According to NGCP, education is one of their CSR advocacies and they appreciate power industry members, like CENECO, who are one with them in the worthy cause.
Earlier this year, NGCP also partnered with Batangas Electric Cooperative I, Inc. (BATELEC I), in donating computers to an elementary school in Talisay, Batangas.
CENECO is an electric cooperative located in Bacolod City, Negros Occidental and is currently serving the areas of Bacolod, Bago, Silay, Talisay, Murcia and Salvador Benedicto.
NGCP is a privately-owned corporation in charge of operating, maintaining and developing the country’s power transmission network.
It continues to work with power customers, local government units and other agencies, in its commitment to support the nation’s social and economic development. (PNA)
