As part of NGCP’s commitment to improve the lives of its host communities, NGCP partnered with the local government of Hermosa, Bataan for its drug rehabilitation and reformation program.
The project, called Bukas na Pintuan Tungo sa Pagbabago, aims to help drug dependents who voluntarily surrendered to be rehabilitated and reformed through providing skills training and opportunities for employment or livelihood.
NGCP and the LGU of Hermosa formalized the partnership through the signing of a memorandum of agreement by Mayor Antonio Joseph Inton, NGCP President and CEO Anthony L. Almeda, and other local government and company officials. The project will be in support of the LGU’s own Bahay Pagbabago Reformation Program which actively helps former drug dependents through skills training in several construction modules such as welding.
“NGCP saw how the Bukas na Pintuan Tungo sa Pagbabago project would really make an impact to the lives of the people of Hermosa. We believe that through this, our reformists will be equipped with enough knowledge needed for them to have gainful employment, be accepted by society, and live decent lives,” said NGCP.
The program will run for 12 months, with 21 participants per batch to be identified by the Hermosa LGU, for a total of 252 former drug dependents to benefit from the program.
The municipality of Hermosa will be host to the Hermosa-San Jose 500kV transmission line project of NGCP. This facility will improve transmission of power in Luzon by accommodating additional generating capacities in the Bataan and Zambales area.
NGCP is a Filipino-led, privately owned company in charge of operating, maintaining, and developing the country’s power grid, led by majority shareholders Henry Sy, Jr. and Robert Coyiuto, Jr. ###
