Promoting quality education for all: PLDT turns over two classrooms in Del Carmen Campus, Siargao

by Katrina A. Mallari | Mar 26, 2018
PLDT, through its Community Relations Division, recently turned over two classrooms at Surigao State College of Technology (SSCT) in Del Carmen Campus, Siargao. Supporting the Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Program, PLDT, in partnership with the Philippine Business for Social Progress (PBSP), built the two classrooms from its Motolite-PBSP Balik Baterya Program funds. This is the first classroom to be built by PLDT and PBSP in the Mindanao region.

With her are, PBSP Mindanao Regional Center Senior Program Officer for Education Rommel M. Gonzales, Del Carmen, Siargao Mayor Alfredo M. Coro II, and SSCT Campus Director Dr. Romy Jun A. Sunico, standing 1st, 3rd, and 4th, respectively. 

PLDT is the pioneer donor supporter of the project and proceeds from the Company’s used batteries were allocated to fund several of PLDT ComRel CSR activities. To date, the Company remains to be the biggest benefactor of the Motolite-PBSP Balik Baterya Program.

“PLDT continuously aims to promote quality education. Through the Motolite-PBSP Balik Baterya Program, we strive to provide every learning opportunity for all. It is truly a privilege to see every student in SSCT optimize these new classrooms in hopes of a better quality education,” said PLDT ComRel Head Katherine Diaz De Rivera. 

Benefitting some 135 senior high school students, the newly built PLDT classrooms improve the capacity of SSCT Del Carmen for its students which was also complemented by the Local Government Unit (LGU) of Del Carmen with another two-classroom building. These PLDT classrooms also host the lecture and orientation venue of all the other senior high schools from the other municipalities. This is due to the Department of Education (DepEd)’s decision to choose SSCT as a Senior Technical partner. Aside from the two classrooms, PLDT also donated 90 student chairs, two sets of teachers tables and chairs, and other amenities, including separate comfort rooms for male and female. The chairs come from the PWDs organization all the way from Agusan del Sur.

Strong partnership
“The donation of the PLDT classrooms mean so much to the local community of Del Carmen. It establishes a strong continued partnership between the LGU of Del Carmen and PLDT – from programs such as the Digital Empowerment of Women to the PLDT Infoteach Outreach Program and now, the PLDT classrooms in SSCT Del Carmen. As PLDT continues to make its presence felt in SSCT, which is the only state college serving the nine municipalities of Siargao Islands, it increases the branding value of SSCT DC towards its commitment to serve its students by providing them the best quality education,” said Del Carmen, Siargao Mayor Alfredo M. Coro II.

Indeed, it takes a village to come up with something incredible such as the PLDT classrooms program. With some kilometers away from the city, the supplies used to build the classrooms came all the way from Surigao City, about three hours via ferry and an hour  to finally reach the school. With support from PBSP, PLDT manages to come up with a program truly for the common good. 

“SSCT Del Carmen is certainly blessed to have been given two units of classrooms from PLDT, through the relentless efforts of our Municipal Mayor and the former SSCT DC administration. Finally, another facility for conducive learning environment can now be enjoyed by our students and instructors,” said SSCT Campus Director Dr. Romy Jun A. Sunico. 

The PLDT-Motolite-PBSP Balik Baterya Program is aimed at encouraging proper disposal and legitimate recycling of used batteries and rid the environment of toxic and hazardous chemicals. Funds from donated used batteries are used to support CSR projects identified by the company and PBSP.
