Aeta school in Zambales receives TV sets, fans, school supplies
An Aeta community school in Subic, Zambales recently received brand new TV sets, ceiling fans and school supplies from a business locator at the Subic Bay Freeport.
The donation was made to the Aeta community school in Subic’s Barangay Cawag by Networx Jetsports after holding the 2018 Jet Ski and Boat Charity Fun Run at the Silangin Cove in San Antonio, Zambales, the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority said.
The donated items included seven flat-screen TV sets and 14 ceiling fans, turned over to the Cawag Resettlement Elementary School, and various school supplies for 34 kindergarten and elementary school pupils, handed to the San Martin Aeta tribal leaders.
Manuel Sequeira, a representative of Networx, said the cost of donation is P250,000.
“Napakalaking tulong po ang mga ito sa mga mag-aaral na Ayta na karamihan ay nahihirapang makabili ng kagamitan sa eskwela,” Antonio Cabalic, chieftain of San Martin Aetas, said, according to the SBMA statement, as he expressed gratitude for the donation.
Cabalic’s community is located about two kilometers away from the Cawag Resettlement Elementary School, which most students reach either by walk or a tricycle ride worth P27.00.
SBMA Chairman and Administrator Wilma Eisma lauded the company’s display of “malasakit” to the community and said it “it was a good example that could be emulated by other business locators in the Subic Bay Freeport,” the agency said.
