ON BEHALF of the school administration, community and local government of Barangay Biga, Toledo City, I would like to appeal to the management of Carmen Copper Corp. (formerly Atlas Mining) in Lutopan, Toledo City to grant the deed of donation for the school lot in Lower Biga, Toledo City for the Makatol Elementary School.
Our school has been serving Basic Education (Kinder to Grade 6) to the community since 1998 using makeshift buildings. DepEd is ready to provide a standard building for the school if it has the required deed of donation.
Our school is in a strategic and panoramic location with enough power and water supply to support school operations. It has also network signals for telecommunication. Our major issue for years is the lack of standard school building for our learners.
Our school with ID 190150 has managed to survive with its limited resources of 21K per month. During the pandemic, our school is the first to get 100 percent enrolment in the whole of Toledo City.
We recognize your company’s commitment to helping schools in Toledo City for years. Like your donations of water tanks, parameter fencing and feeding programs to mention a few. However, a deed of donation will be the best gift for the school and its learners in the community after two decades of waiting and sacrifices.
This is our appeal from the heart to the prestigious multi-national mining company that has more than 5,000 hectares of land in Toledo, the copper city with a heart of gold.
