Even the differently abled can have the privilege of taking care of the earth, as students and faculty from Resources for the Blind Incorporated (RBI) proved during a visit to the Aboitiz Cleanergy Park in Davao City.
Davao Light welcomed the group last May 22 and gave them an exclusive tour of the park. They also planted mangrove seedlings along the shoreline, an activity that helped to further enhance their other senses and increase environmental awareness.
“We are grateful that RBI chose the Cleanergy Park to be part of their educational trip. Though the students will not be able to see the beauty of this park, I know that what they will take home with them is the fact that once in their lives they have been part of making a sustainable environment for their own generation,” said Fermin Edillon, Davao Light Community Relations Manager.
“Our students cannot see things with their naked eye but their minds and hearts are not blinded on what the world needs from us to help save Mother Earth through our own little ways.” said Daisy Corpuz, one of RBI’s pre-school teachers.
