As part of promoting quality education by providing classroom buildings to public schools with limited resources and very large student population, the 5ingkowelahan Project has formally turned over 2-classroom school buildings to Lamsogod Elementary School in Surallah, South Cotabato on April 3, 2017. The event was attended by Dolefil representatives namely, Mr. Recto H. Puno, Director of Dole Cannery Upper Valley Operations; Atty. Melquiades L. Hernandez III, Director of Corporate Affairs Division; and Ms. Leamor B. Bañaga, Community and Cooperative Relations Dept. Manager. Hon. Vice Mayor Pinky U. Divinagracia of LGU Surallah and Hon. Brgy. Capt. Anthony Baladjay also graced the occasion together with representatives from tripartite partners and other key stakeholders.
The first part of the program was the ribbon cutting and blessing of the building followed by the messages of support from project sponsors and the ceremonial turning over of the responsibility to the school. The school gladly accepted the symbolic building miniature and the Principal, Mr. Salvador Lacson extended his gratitude to Dolefil and its partners for their continued support and assistance. The building construction was completed in a duration of 3 months.
Lamsogod Elementary School is the 4th school beneficiary of the 5ingkowelahan Project since its inception in 2014. It is also the second building constructed using the new architectural design for Dolefil’s unique identity through the Unified Engineering and Manpower Services Multi-Purpose Cooperative Engineers spearheaded by Engr. Rosalito Amarante.
Dolefil’s Adopt-a-School (AAS) 5ingkowelahan project was created to help generate funding and support to education by constructing comfortable classroom buildings to public schools.
