BDO Foundation, the corporate social responsibility arm of BDO Unibank, has inked an agreement with the Philippine Geothermal Production Company (PGPC) for the construction of a three-classroom school building in Baybay Elementary School in Catarman, Northern Samar.
Supportive of the Department of Education’s Adopt-A-School program, the project aims to address the need for more classrooms in the school. The initiative is also in line with the partners’ shared advocacy to support underserved communities affected by disasters. Catarman has been severely affected by typhoons in recent years.
