“We are committed to helping students from all backgrounds, particularly the indigenous peoples of our partner communities, achieve their educational goals. Our support for the Education Sector through our various programs is our way of helping the future leaders and mobilizers of change in our society. We strongly support students who have the potential to make a positive difference in their respective communities and chosen fields,” said May Che Capili, External Relations Officer of Apo Agua.

To celebrate the various milestones of its education projects and acknowledge the support of its partner schools, Apo Agua organized a Culminating Activity with the theme “Empowering Dreams through Education” on October 12, 2023. In attendance were the School Heads and Representatives from this year’s partner schools, Third District Congressman Isidro “Sid” Ungab, DepEd SGOD Chief Dr. Teresita del Valle, and Barangay Affairs Coordinator Ms. Carolina Domingo from the Office of Vice Mayor, Atty. Jay Quitain.

“We really have a good partnership with Apo Agua. I am thankful that Apo Agua is working hard, even beyond what was promised. Through your Corporate Social Responsibility [efforts] of helping schools, our teachers, and our students, we are going a long way toward helping our community,” Cong. Isidro Ungab said.

Through its educational programs in collaboration with their partner barangays and schools, Apo Agua affirms its commitment as an organization to empower communities and uplift the lives of Davaoeños. “We have the same goal: no learner should be left behind. You know there are students who said that they can’t continue going to school because of financial struggles. Hopefully, with Apo Agua’s assistance, the participation rate of the learners will increase,” DepEd-Davao School Governance and Operations Division (SGOD) Chief Dr. Teresita Del Valle said.
