NGCP gives school kits to pupils in host areas
by Redjie Melvic Cawis / PIA

LA TRINIDAD, Benguet – More than 2,300 pupils from the different public schools in Benguet, Mountain Province, and nearby areas benefited from the back-to-school program for host communities of the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines.

The NGCP donated school supplies to pupils in the host communities through its “Gamit ni bulilit” program, a yearly project that aims to assist grades 1 to 3 pupils from public schools.

NGCP District 2 Corporate Communications Officer Melma Batario said that the beneficiaries are pupils from   Caliking, Atok; Ambangeg, Ambuklao, and Kawal, Bokod; Binga, Ucab, Tinong-dan, Ampucao, and Poblacion, Itogon; Piminggan, Lubas, and Ansagan, Tuba; and Beckel, La Trinidad all in Benguet.

Beneficiaries also include the Guinzadan Elementary School and Banao ES in Mountain Province; Pingkian, Kayapa in Nueva Vizcaya; and Bonboaya ES in San Manuel, Pangasinan.

More than 120,000 first to grade 3 pupils from 400 schools nationwide are included in the program this year. Beneficiaries are from 166 schools in North Luzon, 55 in South Luzon, 81 in Visayas, and 98 in Mindanao. These schools are located in barangays hosting NGCP’s facilities.

The pupils are also introduced to the basic concepts of transmission line safety. They are given age-appropriate lectures and materials on the do’s and dont’s around transmission lines and facilities, and on anti-pilferage.

“We focused our program on children from the lower grade levels on the idea that educational motivation is most effective during a child’s formative years. Fostering interest for learning at an early age will keep the children invested in their education and increase the chances of their staying in school. NGCP hopes that the children will be inspired to eventually finish their education,” the NGCP statement read.

“The program is also NGCP’s way of expressing gratitude to our host communities who, through the years, have been supportive in protecting NGCP facilities and in ensuring its safety so that everyone enjoys reliable electricity,” it added.
