PSE links with SM Foundation for a school building program
The Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE) will work hand-in-hand with SM Prime Holdings and SM Foundation for a school building program in Leyte, one of the provinces severely affected by Typhoon Yolanda.
The PSE will undertake the program through the PSE Foundation and will utilize a part of the donations received from stock exchanges in the region and trading participants for the project.
The identified beneficiary for the program is San Roque Elementary School in Barangay San Roque, Tanauan, Leyte. The two-storey, four classroom building that will be constructed is expected to be turned over to the school by November 2014.
“Partnering with SM Prime Holdings and SM Foundation is not an end in itself but the beginning of a long, meaningful partnership. And with our new partners, we will be able to touch the lives of our countrymen,” PSE President and CEO and Foundation Chairman Hans B. Sicat said in his welcome remarks during the Memorandum of Agreement signing ceremony.
