BDO Foundation, the corporate social responsibility arm of BDO Unibank, has inked an agreement with the Philippine Geothermal Production Company (PGPC) to construct a three-classroom school building in Baybay Elementary School in Catarman, Northern Samar.

The memorandum of agreement (MOA) was signed by (from left) BDO Foundation trustee Ismael Estela Jr., BDO Foundation trustee Lucy Co Dy, BDO Foundation president Mario Deriquito, PGPC president Napoleon Saporsantos Jr., PGPC chief finance officer Ian Jason Aguirre, and PGPC director for legal and corporate affairs Ma. Fe Guirnalda-Lucero.

Supportive of the Department of Education’s (DepEd) Adopt-A-School program, the project addresses the need for more classrooms.

The initiative also aligns with the partners’ shared advocacy to support underserved communities affected by disasters. Catarman has been severely affected by typhoons in recent years.
