Brigada Eskwela: BAVI volunteers prepare five schools for class opening
Bounty Agri Ventures Inc. (BAVI) employees recently took part in the Brigada Eskwela program of the Department of Education. The nationwide program encourages organizations to donate and lend a helping hand towards refurbishing public elementary and high school classrooms and facilities in time for the opening of classes.
At the Punta Integrated School in Calamba City, BAVI volunteers, led by president and general manager Ronald Mascariñas, partnered with parents of the students and other stakeholders in repainting the classrooms’ walls, ceilings, chairs and tables. The company behind the famous Chooks-to-Go oven-roasted chicken brand also donated gallons of paint and painting equipment.
“We at BAVI are committed to help provide needy schools with classrooms that are conducive to learning. We believe that this will inspire our young students to study more, learn new things, including love for country, towards becoming the best that they can be,” Mascariñas said.
In Butuan City, more than a dozen BAVI volunteers also helped repaint the Taligaman Central Elementary School and Ampayon Central Elementary School using paint donated by the company.
BAVI also provided funds to the Amado V. Hernandez Elementary School in Tondo, Manila and the Balatong B Elementary School in Pulilan, Bulacan to support their activities during Brigada Eskwela which is also known as National Schools Maintenance Week.
