Manila Water joins gov’t’s Oplan Brigada Eskwela
East Zone water and used water service provider Manila Water said it joined this year’s National Schools Maintenance Week or the “OplanBrigada Eskwela” of the Department of Education as schools gear up for the influx of students when classes formally open.
As part of its contribution to the week-long event prior to the school opening, more than a hundred Manila Water employees volunteered to help teachers, volunteers and students clean their classrooms in different public schools in Metro Manila and Rizal Province.
Manila Water employees trooped to Villamor High School in Manila, San Isidro Elementary School in Cainta and Mambugan National High School in Antipolo Rizal where they helped co-volunteers in clean-up activities and at the same time donated cleaning and painting materials.
Another batch of Manila Water employees also joined the Operation Brigada Eskwela in Pasig Elementary School and San Joaquin Elementary School both in Pasig City and Full Mines Elementary School in Quezon City.
Manila Water Corporate Strategic Affairs Group Director Jeric Sevilla Jr. said that the company ensures that all public elementary schools and high schools located in its concession area enjoy clean and potable water through its Lingap Eskwela project where drinking fountains and wash areas have been installed.
Sevilla also added that every year, Manila Water includes the regular desludging or septic tank cleaning as part of its activities in the annual schools’ maintenance program.
