Magat power firm donates computer units to Ifugao public schools

Aguinaldo, Ifugao (15 February) -- As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), the SN Aboitiz Power (SNAP) Magat, Inc. recently handed over to the municipality of Aguinaldo, Ifugao at least eleven units of computer equipment which will benefit some 1,600 students of eight public schools here.

The handover ceremony held last month was led by Aguinaldo Mayor Delfin Bullan, Vice Mayor Gaspar Chilagan, Councilor Agustin Natuno and SNAP External Relations Manager Atty. Mike Hosillos.

Mayor Bullan who accepted the equipment in behalf of the schools, vowed to ensure proper maintenance and maximum use of the computers for the school children and teachers.

"We thank SNAP-Magat for bringing this project to our municipality. These computers will go a long way in the educational development of our children," Vice Mayor Chilagan said in his welcome remarks.

Atty. Hosillos hoped that the project will help improve the teaching and learning process among teachers and school children. "SNAP wants to make a positive impact on the communities where we operate through its program of corporate social responsibility. We don’t want to see children being left behind in this computer-driven age," he added.

He also emphasized that other than its CSR projects, SNAP promotes a culture of honesty and integrity in the conduct of its business, ensuring compliance to applicable business laws.

SNAP-Magat also supported a medical and dental mission last month, benefitting 111 dental patients and 67 medical patients also in Ifugao.

The mission was spearheaded by Don Bosco High School Alumni Association Batch 84. Volunteers provided medical services to residents of Barangays Cudog, Boliwong, Burnay, Buyabuyan, Caba, Tunggod, Ponghal, Poblacion in Lagawe and some from the municipalities of Lamut and Kiangan.

SNAP Magat owns and operates the 360 megawatt Magat hydroelectric power plant bordering the towns of Ramon, Isabela and Alfonso Lista, Ifugao. The company is a joint venture of Aboitiz Group and SN Power of Norway, which took over government operations in 2007. (PIA 2) [top]
