One Meralco Foundation, Inc. supports Brigada Eskwela

Meralco engineers check the wirings of a circuit breaker in one of the classrooms at the Dalandanan National High School in Valenzuela City as part of One Meralco Foundation's "Safe Ang School Ko!" program.

In support of the Department of Education's annual "Brigada Eskwela," Meralco's social development arm One Meralco Foundation (OMF) helps public schools prepare for the opening of classes next month through its "Safe ang School Ko!" project.

The foundation partnered with Meralco's Business Centers and Network Sectors for the said project. Meralco linemen and engineers will be dispatched to public schools within the Meralco franchise area beginning Monday (May 19) until Friday (May 23) to assess the safety of electrical connections in school buildings, trim tree branches that could block power lines within the schools' immediate vicinity, and orient school officials on the safe and efficient use of electricity.

One Meralco participated in the National Capital Region (NCR) "Brigada Eskwela" kick-off ceremonies Monday morning which started with a caravan from the DepEd NCR office in Bago Bantay, Quezon City to the Dalandanan National High School in Valenzuela City.

"Our Safe Ang School Ko project has benefited more than 1,800 public schools within Meralco's franchise area. We are able to do this because of our employees’ strong volunteerism spirit and our determination to serve in the best way we can," said Jeffrey O. Tarayao, President of OMF.

"It is the goal of our 'Safe ang School Ko!' project to keep teachers and students safe by ensuring that their schools conform to safety electrical standards," he added.
