Balik Baterya Supports Classrooms Repair in Pangasinan

PLDT, led by its Senior Manager for Community Relations Ms. Evelyn del Rosario, recently turned over 5 classrooms that were repaired through their donation to the Motolite-PBSP Balik Baterya funds.

The project benefited Mabini and Esmeralda Elementary Schools in Balungao, Pangasinan. Balungao is a fourth class municipality belonging to the 6th district and is identified as one of the underdeveloped municipalities.

Mabini ES has 134 pupils and 4 teachers while Esmeralda ES has 424 pupils and 12 teachers.

The schools are truly grateful for the improved learning environment provided by the Balik Baterya funds.

March 10 was indeed a joyous day for the two schools as pupils also rendered intermission numbers for the guests. Also there to receive PBSP (represented by Assistant Director for Luzon Regional Operations Mr Rene Fortuno) and PLDT were Hon. Mayor Philipp Peralta, barangay officials and school PTCAs.
