West Zone concessionaire Maynilad Water Services, Inc. (Maynilad) recently supported the Brigada Eskwela program of the Department of Education (DepEd) by sending employee-volunteers to refurbish classrooms and upgrade water and sanitation facilities in 88 public schools throughout its concession area.
This year, Maynilad donated some 26,400 water bottles, bidets, and cleaning materials to the schools. The company will also build 70 drink-wash stations in West Zone public schools, in support of DepEd’s WinS (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene in Schools) program.
“Maynilad has been an active partner of Brigada Eskwela since 2012. We fully support DepEd’s mission to provide a good learning environment for students, and we are happy to be a part of this initiative,” said Maynilad President and CEO Ramoncito S. Fernandez.
