From Philam Foundation: Today, millions of children in the country’s remote and far-flung communities have no access to quality education. Schools in these areas, should there even be any, are makeshift structures that are not conducive for learning. Philam Foundation, the corporate social responsibility arm of Philam Life and affiliate companies, are committed to change this. With our Philam Paaralan program, we envision to build clean, safe, and well-furnished schools in every underserved region in the country. In fact, last June 29, 2011, we have already built eight (8) classrooms in the province of Isabela!
And we are just getting started. Our job to provide proper school infrastructure is far from over, we face the challenge of building more schools in underserved areas and bring education to the underprivileged.
But we cannot do it alone. To officially launch Philam Paaralan, we have organized the Run for Healthy Education: The Philam Paaralan Family Fun Run on October 29, 2011 5:00AM – 8:00AM at Tiendesitas, Pasig City wherein 100% of the registration fees will be donated for the benefit of Philam Paaralan.
