Global Busi­ness Power holds Christ­mas party for chil­dren

Cebu Daily News - - COMMUNITY -

GLOBAL Busi­ness Power re­cently held a Christ­mas cel­e­bra­tion for at least 400 chil­dren of its adopted barangays in Toledo City.

Two hun­dred of th­ese chil­dren were in­di­gents from Daan­lung­sod, Sangi, Lu­ray 2, Pobla­cion and Cam­bang-ug, the adopted barangays of GBP.

The re­main­ing 200 were GBP schol­ars, with 97 from ele­men­tary, 86 from ju­nior high school, 24 from se­nior high school.

“GBP is here to bring light and cre­ate elec­tric­ity that pow­ers so­ci­ety and in­dus­tries al­low­ing its peo­ple to also grow, progress and ful­fill their dreams,” said Engr. Leah Diaz, GBP’s First Vice Pres­i­dent - Cebu Op­er­a­tions.

The party, which GBP con­ducts every year, fea­tured games, raf­fle, and gift giv­ing for the par­tic­i­pants.

“The gath­er­ing is just one of the ac­tiv­i­ties that GBP does to sup­port the chil­dren who are the fu­ture lead­ers of the na­tion,” Diaz added, high­light­ing that GBP in­vests in the fu­ture of Toledo through schol­ar­ship and other so­cial de­vel­op­ment pro­grams.

For years, GBP seeks to make a pos­i­tive dif­fer­ence and build sig­nif­i­cant rela- tion­ships in places where its power plants are lo­cated.

GBP fur­ther aims to be­come a re­li­able and trusted part­ner in the com­mu­nity that is why it has other com­mu­nity ini­tia­tives aside from Ed­u­ca­tional As­sis­tance. Th­ese are En­vi­ron­ment Con­ser­va­tion, Health and Well­ness and So­cial De­vel­op­ment.

GBP is one of the lead­ing in­de­pen­dent op­er­a­tors in the Visayas, op­er­at­ing 11 power gen­er­a­tion fa­cil­i­ties in Cebu, Iloilo, Ak­lan, and Min­doro. In 2017, the com­pany ac­quired a 50% stake in Min­danao-based Al­sons Ther­mal En­ergy Cor­po­ra­tion.
