To celebrate 25 years of going above and beyond in inspiring generations of Filipino families, Samsung Electronics Philippines (SEPCO) recently partnered with the Department of Education (DepEd) for Brigada Eskwela 2023 to help clean and repaint classrooms in Palar Integrated School in Taguig.
Brigada Eskwela is the DepEd’s program specifically aimed at preparing public schools for the upcoming school year.
More than 100 SEPCO volunteers signed up to help Palar Integrated School. Present during the activities were DepEd OIC – Schools Division Superintendent Dr. Cynthia Ayles, Palar Integrated School Principal III Dr. Magdalena G. Centeno, and DepEd OIC for Social Mobilization Networking Desiree M. Adrigado.
SEPCO President Min Su Chu led the volunteers and expressed gratitude to DepEd and Palar Integrated School for allowing SEPCO to celebrate its 25th anniversary through Brigada Eskwela.
“When we planned SEPCO’s 25th year in the Philippines, we were certain that we wanted to give back to the community that we have been part of all these years. Palar Integrated School is home to more than 4,000 students, 90 teachers, and hundreds of non-teaching staff, and it is very meaningful for us to help them in this way,” he said.
This initiative is in line with Samsung’s global CSR vision of empowering the next generation to achieve their full potential and pioneer positive social changes. People and co–prosperity are the core of Samsung’s corporate philosophy, and this is part of SEPCO’s commitment to collaborate with the government and various organisations to support education programs in the Philippines.
