Tsuneishi Reaches Out to Local Students Through Brigada Eskwela

THICI employee volunteers join forces to beautify Balamban Central Elementary School during the Brigada Eskwela launch with the Balamban Municipality last May 18

In time for the opening of classes for academic year 2013-2014, Tsuneishi Foundation (Cebu), Inc., the philanthropic arm of Cebu-based shipbuilder Tsuneishi Heavy Industries (Cebu), Inc. (THICI), reached out to some 400 students from its host communities.

Through the Department of Education’s program, Brigada Eskwela, the foundation collaborated with the Balamban Municipality to improve the learning environment of this year’s beneficiaries, the Balamban Central Elementary School and Pondol Elementary School.

A total of 175 volunteers from the Tsuneishi Group who joined the event worked on the clean-up, painting, and repair of eight classrooms, with the aid of school teachers and some volunteers from the local government.

The foundation also allocated resources to donate materials needed for the school beautification such as paint, lumber, and additional cleaning materials.

“The foundation exhausts all means to enrich people’s lives by supporting the communities where we operate. We contribute in providing quality education to students through better facilities and other forms of assistance,” said THICI President Hitoshi Kono.

THICI is a joint venture between the Aboitiz Group and Japan-based shipbuilder Tsuneishi Group since 1994.
