More than 300 pupils of Nanapun Elementary School in Marawi City, Lanao del Sur benefited from a donation made recently by BDO Foundation, the corporate social responsibility arm of BDO Unibank, in partnership with BancNet, the Philippines’ leading electronic payments and ATM network. In preparation for the resumption of face-to-face classes, the foundation and BancNet provided backpacks, notebooks and other school supplies to kindergarten and elementary students. The corporate citizenship initiative, which supports the Department of Education’s Balik Eskwela program, is the partners’ latest joint project. BDO Foundation and BancNet have constructed a school building in Nanapun Elementary School in response to the Marawi siege.
