As part of its efforts to help boost the country’s education sector, TeaM Energy, through its corporate social responsibility arm TeaM Energy Foundation, Inc. (TEFI) recently completed the construction of a fully equipped school building in Pangasinan, and a 320 square meter multi-purpose hall in Quezon.
The brand-new school building in Siaosio Integrated School in Sual, Pangasinan consists of two fully furnished classrooms that include armchairs, blackboards, teacher’s desks, electric fans, and lighting fixtures. The classrooms also have their own restroom for the convenience of students and teachers.
The multi-purpose facility comes complete with a stage, floodlights, and 100 chairs. This was donated by TEFI to Lipata Elementary School in Barangay Lipata, Padre Burgos, Quezon. This covered facility will be used for different programs and activities by the school and barangay.
“TEFI continues to partner with local government units and different organizations in helping uplift and improve the country’s education sector,” says Nestor Banga, Program Manager of TEFI. “We hope that these brand new facilities in Pangasinan and Quezon contribute in improving the learning experience for students and teachers,” he adds.
Over the years, TEFI’s Project SiKAP (Silid Aralan tungo sa Katauparang ng mga Pangarap), has successfully constructed high quality classrooms and school-buildings to aid the continuous development of the country’s education sector.
TEFI is the social development arm of TeaM Energy, which operates two coal-fired power plants: the 1,200 MW Sual Power Station in Pangasinan, and the 735 MW Pagbilao Power Station in Quezon Province. It also has a 50% stake in the 420 MW Pagbilao Unit 3 Power Project in Quezon.
