The National Power Corporation (Napocor) through its Watershed Management Department’s ‘Alay ng Napocor sa Kabataan’ project donates 100 armchairs to Barasoain Memorial Elementary School in Malolos, Bulacan on Tuesday, January 27, 2015.

“The chairs were made from fallen trees during recent typhoons that hit the Angat Watershed and some confiscated logs. We have thought of converting the logs into something more usable and so the chairs came to be,” said Napocor President Ma. Gladys Cruz-Sta. Rita.

President Sta. Rita added that since Angat Watershed is in the province of Bulacan, it is just appropriate that the first beneficiary school comes from the same province. She chose the Barasoain Elementary school, the public elementary school where President Sta. Rita graduated.

According to Mr. Felipe V. dela Cruz, Principal of the Barasoain Memorial Elementary School, the chairs will be of great use to the students as the number of enrollees is ballooning each year. Currently, the school has 2, 121 students.

Napocor has also tapped fellow power industry movers, the Aboitiz Powers and the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines to extend assistance to the school through granting of school bags supplies to the kinder students.
