In partnership with the Philippine Business for Social Progress (PBSP), PLDT recently turned over two classrooms in Bagnos Elementary School in Aurora, Isabela made possible through the PLDT Motolite-PBSP Balik-Baterya program. At least 160 elementary students of the school will be able to use the two classrooms along with 90 chairs and two sets of teachers tables and chairs.
Situated in Barangay Bagnos, the school finds its humble beginnings rooted in a three-classroom nipa hut. Through the years, it has thrived to provide basic education to the children of Barangay Bagnos.

There are at present a total of ten instructional classrooms in Bagnos Elementary School – four of which are unsafe for classroom teaching and learning. The additional two classrooms provided by PLDT pave a strong path towards conducive learning.
With these new classrooms, PLDT continuously promotes accessibility to quality learning for all – encouraging everyone to aim high and dream big. It provides an opportunity for each one to flourish within a learning environment that ultimately instills proper learning and growth.
PLDT has been cited as the number one donor of the recycling program, now on its 10th year of providing educational facilities to various beneficiaries. CC:
