In Cebu, Globe volunteers funded and painted a new library of Tulay National High School in barangay Tulay, Minglanilla town.
In Manila, Globe volunteers headed to Daanghari Elementary School in Navotas. The team, along with community members, volunteers from the SM Zone One Tondo Organization (SM Zoto) and United Nations Volunteers painted classroom walls, school chairs and tables.
The volunteers also visited and painted school buildings at Jose Fabella Memorial School in Mandaluyong City on June 2.
In Cagayan de Oro City, the Cagayan de Oro Central School served as the beneficiaries of Globe’s cleanup activity.

We fully support DepEd’s initiatives for Brigada Eskwela and are happy to partner with United Nations volunteers, as well as work with groups like SM Zoto, to make significant contributions in various communities,” said Globe corporate social responsibility head Rob Nazal.
