Cebu Libre - - NEWS -

MACTAN, Cebu – A to­tal of 128 em­ploy­ees of GMRMEGAWIDE Cebu Air­port Corp. ( GMCAC) vol­un­teered in this year’s class­room main­te­nance pro­gram of the De­part­ment of Ed­u­ca­tion (DedEd), also known as Bri­gada Eskwela 2016.

GMCAC part­nered with four el­e­men­tary schools in Lapu-Lapu City from barangays Pu­sok, Basak, Buaya and Ibo dur­ing the four-day Bri­gada Eskwela cam­paign held from June 1 to 4.

Em­ploy­ees took turns do­ing gen­eral clean-up, re­paint­ing of class­room walls, re­pair of bro­ken chairs, and re­moval and dis­posal of con­struc­tion de­bris, among others.

La­bella Si­toy, Bri­gada Eskwela Co­or­di­na­tor for Buaya El­e­men­tary School thanked GMCAC.

”I am grate­ful to the GMCAC em­ploy­ees who vol­un­teered their time in clean­ing up the class­room. The group came in full force and were ready with their clean­ing equip­ment. They have been very help­ful in our Bri­gada Eskwela cam­paign and we hope to see them again next year,”

Si­toy said. “Em­ployee en­gage­ment is al­ways the primary focus of the Man­age­ment Team and Hu­man Re­sources and en­gag­ing em­ploy­ees in mean­ing­ful ways that help to give back to so­ci­ety is some­thing each em­ployee, who or­ga­nized and par­tic­i­pated the event, should be proud of,” said An­drew Har­ri­son, GMCAC Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Ad­viser.

GMCAC’s par­tic­i­pa­tion in the Bri­gada Sk­wela Cam­paign is part of the com­pany’s Cor­po­rate So­cial Re­spon­si­bil­ity port­fo­lio un­der its Ed­u­ca­tion plat­form.

Bri­gada Eskwela is an an­nual main­te­nance pro­gram ini­ti­ated by the DepEd that in­vites and en­gages part­ners and ed­u­ca­tion stake­hold­ers to con­trib­ute their time and ef­forts to help cre­ate a good learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment for el­e­men­tary and high school stu­dents in time for the open­ing of classes.

GMCAC – which is 60% owned by listed Filipino con­struc­tion com­pany Me­gaw­ide Con­struc­tion Cor­po­ra­tion and 40% by Ban­ga­lore-based GMR In­fra­struc­ture Lim­ited – won a 25-year con­ces­sion agree­ment to ren­o­vate MCIA Ter­mi­nal 1.

Last year, GMCAC has started work on MCIA’s Ter­mi­nal 2 to boost the air­port’s pas­sen­ger car­ry­ing ca­pac­ity to 12.5 to 13 mil­lion a year from the cur­rent 4.5 mil­lion by Oc­to­ber of 2018.

MCIA is en­vi­sioned to be­come the world’s friendli­est air­port gate­way that demon­strates the warmth and hos­pi­tal­ity of the Ce­buano peo­ple.
