Davao Light equips Islamic library with computer unit

Davao City (17 January) -- Electric distributor Davao Light and Power Company donated a brand new, top-of-the line computer unit, complete with peripherals and accessories, for the first ever public Islamic library in Davao City.

The turnover was done last Friday, January 12, at the library located inside the compound of the Mosque in front of SM City Davao.

The donation is one of the company's projects under its corporate social responsibility (CSR) program that focuses primarily on improving the quality of education of the people in communities where it operates.

The same library was also equipped by the company with study tables and chairs, as well as a lounge sofa. The library that caters to students of Madrasahs or Islamic schools in Davao City, as well as those coming from mainstream colleges and universities who do research on Islam and the Moro culture, is a project initiated by a group of Moro professionals led by Region XI Department of Education (DepEd) director Dr. Diamar Kadon.

Davao Light president Alfonso Aboitiz and Executive vice president Manuel Orig approved the proposal of the company's Community Relations (ComRel) Department to grant the request of Director Kadon for a computer unit. The approval was subsequently affirmed by the Aboitiz Group Foundation Inc. (AGFI), the social development arm of the companies under the Aboitiz conglomerate.

The company also lent the technical expertise of its 11 people in setting up the computer and in providing orientation to the library management in its efficient use.
