Aboitiz encourages UN's universal education goal

Davao City (2 June) -- Two weeks before the opening of classes in public schools, AboitizPower's wholly-owned subsidiary Hedcor Sibulan, Inc. in cooperation with Aboitiz Foundation, Inc. distributed school supplies to enrollees of far-flung Tudaya Elementary School in Barangay Sibulan, Sta. Cruz, Davao del Sur.

Three hundred incoming grades 1 to 6 pupils of the said school eagerly received a pack of paper pads, notebooks, pencils, ballpens and crayons exclusively given by Hedcor Sibulan, Inc. and Aboitiz Foundation, Inc.

"Low enrollment rate and dropping out of class due to lack of funds to send the students to school are our usual problems here", said Tudaya Elementary School Principal Ricky Amaro. "With these support in kind, I am sure the students are encouraged to go to school knowing they are equipped with the basic necessities to attend classes", added Amaro.

In January this year, United Nations (UN) warned the Philippines in leaving the poor behind when it comes to their education. Achieving universal primary education which includes expanding early childhood care and education, and providing free and compulsory primary education for all is UN's Millennium Development Goal # 2.

Tudaya Elementary School is one of the host schools to the 42.5 MW Sibulan Hydropwoer Project owned by HSI. Known as a neighbor of choice by communities, HSI and Aboitiz Foundation, Inc. give back to host communities through funds, donations and grants which focuses on primary health, education, livelihood and environmental sustainability.
