PHINMA Corporation, a proudly Filipino conglomerate with businesses in education, construction materials, property development and hospitality, celebrated its 16th year of commitment and contribution to the Department of Education’s (DepEd) annual Brigada Eskwela.
This year, over 800 volunteers from the PHINMA Group participated in the Brigada Eskwela. The school improvement initiative this year involves repairing and cleaning 40 public schools across the country. PHINMA also donated masks, gloves, alcohol, cleaning materials and school supplies in preparation for the resumption of face-to-face classes.
The PHINMA Group has been mobilizing its employees, scholars, and their families to participate in DepEd’s Adopt-A-School Program even before the institutionalization of Brigada Eskwela in 2008. Volunteers from across its network have engaged in various initiatives from repairing classrooms and building walkways and sheds to renovating gardens and donating school supplies.
PHINMA has helped at least 10,907 students and 247 teachers from public schools and has planted no less than 280 native trees in the past 10 years.
