More students will be pumped up to drive through their dreams, as the Caltex Fuel Your School program has officially arrived at Ilocos and CAR Region. Aiming to raise P3 million, the project helps public high schools through a fuel-up-to-donate system that will run from June 1 to July 31, 2018.
The program affirms donation of one peso for every liter of fuel purchase in Caltex stations all over La Union, Ilocos Sur, Ilocos Norte, Abra, Mountain Province, and Upper Session Road, Baguio City. The accumulated fund will then be distributed to 30 public high schools that are in dire need. Each school will take P100,000 as means of support to classroom projects in Science, Technology, Engineering or Math (STEM) track.
Aside from Caltex, the major project partner Northern Star, also donated a total of P1.5 million, and also expressed its willingness to tap other 26 Caltex station to participate in the said project.
Caltex’s Fuel Your School campaign is on its third year, providing STEM resources to 88 schools, 3,000 public high school teachers, and over one million public high school students in Metro Manila, Davao, and Bicol.
“The implementation of the K-12 curriculum has laden the system with the lack of learning materials and equipment which has taken a backseat to structural provisions by the government. An inclusive and stakeholder-engaging project such as the Caltex Fuel Your School is indeed one of its kind and offers quick solution to the gap in learning resources for the STEM track. The program is revolutionary and we are happy to support it.”
This corporate social responsibility (CSR) program was applauded by various award-giving bodies such as the Silver and Gold Anvil Awards, the American Chamber of Commerce CSR Excellence Awards, and a merit recognition from the coveted Quill Awards.
