Maynilad to refurbish water facilities of 151 public schools
West Zone concessionaire Maynilad Water Services, Inc. (Maynilad) said it will help upgrade water and sanitation facilities in 151 public schools throughout its concession area in support of this year’s Brigada Eskwela program of the Department of Education (DepEd).
The water company kicked off its annual Brigada Eskwela participation with the installation of 26 bidets at Malinta Elementary School in Valenzuela City.
Maynilad’s employee-volunteers also replaced busted faucets and toilet flushes so these will be operational once classes start next month.
“We are honored to be part of DepEd’s annual Brigada Eskwela program. Through this initiative, we are able to not only provide a good learning environment for students, but also to reinforce the spirit of volunteerism among our employees,” said Maynilad President and CEO Ramoncito S. Fernandez.
Maynilad also donated 500 pieces of bottled water for the volunteers, educational signages, and cleaning materials to the school.
