The PLDT-Smart Foundation (PSF) has partnered with Aklat, Gabay, Aruga tungo sa Pag-angat at Pag-Asa (AGAPP) Foundation Inc. in building additional classrooms for kindergarten pupils across the country.

A two-room school building was turned over to Sampaga Elementary School in Apalit, Pampanga early this month in a simple ceremony where students and teachers of the school performed for the guests from AGAPP and the various member-companies of Metro Pacific Investments Corp. (MPIC) and the PLDT Group, including PSF and Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart).

MPIC and PLDT Group Chairman Manuel V. Pangilinan gives a short keynote speech to inspire the pupils during the turnover of the school building to the Sampaga Elementary School.

The new school building was funded by PSF through AGAPP Foundation’s “Silid Pangarap” project.  AGAPP is spearheading a program to build 2,000 school buildings by the end of President Aquino’s term in 2016.

Pupils of Sampaga Elementary School welcomed the new school building and the guests of honor during the turnover ceremony held early this month.

Mobile phone leader Smart has also supported the project and has helped build similar two-room kindergarten school buildings for public schools in Santiago, Isabela; Tuguegarao, General Santos, Davao City and Gumaca in Quezon Province.
