Volunteers from construction solution company Holcim Philippines, Inc. went back to school to help local communities prepare public elementary and secondary schools for the start of classes this year under the Department of Education’s (DepEd) Brigada Eskwela initiative.

Sustaining its support to this activity for the fourth-straight year, Holcim Philippines donated school equipment and building materials, while its people again trooped to local schools to lend a hand in getting these ready for the year ahead.

Holcim Philippines employees nationwide, including this group from its plant in Lugait Misamis Oriental, joined the Department of Education’s Brigada Eskwela for the fourth-straight year to help schools in their communities get ready for the start of classes in 2016.


During the weekends of May and June, Holcim Philippines employees in La Union, Bulacan, Taguig, Batangas, Misamis Oriental and colleagues from affiliate LafargeHolcim Aggregates, Inc. in Rizal helped clean and paint facilities, repair chairs and tend gardens in various schools. It also conducted safety orientations for other volunteers as part of its efforts to spread the company’s safety advocacy.

The company continues to be committed to supporting the Brigada Eskwela.
