CLARK FREEPORT— With its aim to pro­vide in­clu­sive de­vel­op­ment, Clark De­vel­op­ment Corporation (CDC) has re­cently sup­ported var­i­ous school projects and pro­grams of its neigh­bor­ing com­mu­nit i es.

Through its Ex­ter­nal Af­fairs De­part­ment’s (EAD) Cor­po­rate So­cial Re­spon­si­bil­ity (CSR) Pro­gram, some schools in Tar­lac in­clud­ing San Vi­cente El­e­men­tary School (SVES) and Villa Concepcion El­e­men­tary School (VCES) have been given as­sis­tance by CDC. These in­clude the com­ple­tion of var­i­ous projects that will be ben­e­fi­cial for stu­dent - re­lated act i vi t i es.

CDC sup­ported the said schools by pro­vid­ing ma­te­ri­als for the con­struc­tion, con­cret­ing, and im­prove­ment of their re­spec­tive school grounds, ben­e­fit­ting some 508 stu­dents. The com­pleted projects were also re­cently in­spected by CDC-EAD As­sis­tant Vice Pres­i­dent Rom­mel Nar­ciso with Ca­pac­ity Build­ing Of­fi­cer II Agnes Ma­tias.

SVES Head Teacher II Mari­beth Ma­nipun said the im­prove­ment of their school grounds and pro­vi­sion of pave­ment in the area will help en­sure the safety of their stu­dents.

“We re­quested for this project be­cause our school grounds tend to be flooded dur­ing heavy rains and are con­cern is that it might cause mi­nor ac­ci­dents to stu­dents when this area be­comes slip­pery. But with the com­ple­tion of this project, we can en­sure the safety of the stu­dents while we con­duct var­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties here,” Ma­nipun said.

Ac­cord­ingly, Joanne San­tos, one of the teach­ers in SVES, thanked the state-owned firm for sup­port­ing the said project in their school.

“Our part­ner­ship with CDC es­pe­cially with its Ex­ter­nal Af­fairs have been very har­mo­nious. CDC have been very ac­tive when­ever we ask for their help. Ac­tu­ally, we asked for their sup­port in this project be­cause this area in our school grounds has been prone to flood and we can’t hold our flag rais­ing cer­e­mony here. But with the com­ple­tion of this project, we can now con­duct the cer­e­mony in our school grounds. We are very thank­ful that out of all the schools, they chose to pri­or­i­tize this project,” San­tos said.

Mean­while, the tribal coun­cil of Si­tio Malasa in Tar­lac also re­ceived two com­puter sets which will be uti­lized by both stu­dents and out of school youths in the area. These com­put­ers were pro­vided to help in the train­ing on ba­sic com­puter lit­er­acy and other train­ings.

CDC has also part­nered with its lo­ca­tors in ex­tend­ing help to se­lected com­mu­ni­ties. Re­cently, it col­lab­o­rated with Quest Ho­tel and Clark Wa­ter Corporation (CWC) where they con­ducted wa­ter ra­tioning in Si­tio Gaya­man and Barangay Anupul in Tar l ac.

Other CSR pro­grams of CDC in­clude the Bri­gada Eskwela where 14 schools from Ma­bal­a­cat City, Tar­lac and Po­rac ben­e­fited.— CDC-Com­mDep
