DAVAO CITY — It may be the era of social media for a digital generation, but school year 2016 saw the country’s public school students and teachers still using the traditional chalk, blackboard, and handmade diagrams on cartolina and Manila paper to teach and learn their lessons in class.
To address this gap, Chevron Philippines Inc. (CPI), marketer of the Caltex brand of fuels and lubricants, recently launched Cycle 2 of its multi-awarded Caltex Fuel Your School (FYS) Program which helps provide thousands of public senior high school students and hundreds of teachers in Davao City with much needed materials and equipment for learning Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) subjects.
“Through the help of motorists from June 1 to 30, we will donate P1 for every purchase of 1 liter of fuel or Delo Sports engine oil in all participating Caltex stations in Davao City,” says Raissa Bautista, CPI Policy, Government and Public Affairs manager.
Caltex FYS aims to raise P3 million in this month-long back-to-school campaign as grant fund to provide for STEM equipment and materials to 30 of the most disadvantaged senior public schools in Davao City.
Facebook users who are not based in Davao City may still help the 30 schools by voting for their favorite STEM classroom projects. Each vote is an additional chance for the school to get their longed-for learning tools, as reflected in the Caltex FYS leaderboard.
Schools are funded first in the order of highest number of votes. You can vote via the Caltex Facebook Page or directly at www.caltexfuelyourschoolph.com.
