Cotabato Light builds kitchen for children with special needs

Cotabato City Central Pilot School had their new training kitchen tailor-fit for its 41 pupils under the special education division. The kitchen was built by Cotabato Light and Aboitiz Foundation upon the recommendation of Dr. Concepcion F. Balawag, Cotabato City Assistant Schools Division Superintendent OIC.

“We are very happy that we have materialized this project that would eventually equip these kids to live productivity and independently,” shared Anna Lea Nataño, head of the Cotabato Light communication office. The company provided materials to convert a room into a specially equipped kitchen as well as supplies, appliances, and utensils.

The overall aim is to develop career awareness and work skills through school-to-work transition among children with intellectual disabilities.
