The employees also joined the annual nationwide Brigada Eskwela program, revamping the classrooms by painting the walls and chairs and installing the latest LED bulbs and tubes.
Meanwhile in Jakarta, Indonesia, 120 employees volunteered at two different schools, teaching the children about climate change and energy efficiency. The students were also given the opportunity to reflect on how they can mitigate climate change through their daily activities. As Prajna Khanna, head of CSR Signify Foundation says, “Some people dream, some people DO!” And now these students have the know-how to contribute to sustainability efforts in their daily lives.
To carry on the learning, 16 students were nominated to be official ambassadors of the program. “We vow to promote learning by sharing with others the skills we have gained here,” said one of them.
