Davao Light and Power Co., Inc. in partnership with the Aboitiz Foundation formally turned over school supplies to the National Commission of Indigenous Peoples (NCIP) on July 31 at the Davao Light Admin office.
The donation is in line with NCIP’s Tabang Pa-Eskwela project, which Davao Light has been supporting since 2015. Tabang Pa-Eskwela aims to provide basic social needs, including education-related necessities, to the country’s indigenous people.
Education is one of the focus areas of the Aboitiz Foundation’s corporate social responsibility initiatives. By partnering with the government to promote a better learning environment for the youth, the Foundation aids in co-creating safe, empowered, and sustainable communities.
