As a reciprocating action for the renovation of the Cabuay Day Care Center, volunteers from Barangay Sinawal, General Santos City, Cabuay Multi-Purpose Cooperative joined the parents of the students from Cabuay Day Care Center in a Tree Growing Activity on January 20, 2017.
Prior to planting, Mahintana Foundation, Inc. (MFI) represented by Project Officers Ms. Ella Mae Babao and Mr. Rhofel Shanton Minion shared bits of information on the proper way of planting to ensure survival of the seedlings. At least 1,000 hills of assorted forest and fruit trees were planted along the cleared corn field bordering a gully area at Purok Raquenardz, Sitio Cabuay.
Afterwards, the participants from Brgy. Sinawal headed by the Brgy. Captain Dominador O. Lozano together with the parents and students of Cabuay Day Care Center proceeded to the Day Care Center building to witness the turn-over of the educational toys and reading materials and one (1) unit 29” LED TV which will be used for the educational development and learning of the students.
Dole Philippines, Inc. partnered with Mahintana Foundation, Inc., to implement the Day Care Center Renovation project by providing assistance to day care centers in improving its facilities to make it more conducive for learning to preschool aged children.
