Manila Science High School
Our President asked if we are participating in Brigada Eskwela this year.
Our HR remarked that Brigada ends on May 24, and that there are already two courses lined up for in-house employee training on that day.
"We should prioritize Brigada instead" our President said. "There is no greater teacher than experience."
And so some 59 employees went to Manila Science High School to scrub, sweep, and sweat in order to do what a simple act of volunteerism can do for incoming students this June 2. To learn by action and by experience, that by helping others, and by placing importance on the value created by helping others, we instill corporate values outside of the confines of training rooms and lecture halls.
Brigada Eskwela is an initiative of the Department of Education inviting school officials, parents, students, and private organizations to volunteer in an effort to clean and repair schools in time for opening of classes.
