Banda Kawayan serenades GNPower birthday celebrators

Mariveles, Bataan – GNPower Dinginin Ltd. Co. (GNPD) and GNPower Mariveles Energy Center Ltd. Co (GMEC) employee volunteers shared their birthdays celebration with the 42 talented members of Mt. View Elementary School’s Banda Kawayan.

With the aim to uplift the youth development while enriching our musical culture and preserving the roles of ethnic cultures, specifically the bamboo orchestra of Mt. View, this month’s leg of Project Saysay featured 14 birthday celebrators were greeted with a doxology performance from the students.

The event was also participated by the 36 children under the Kiddie Crew program GMEC and GNPD, another company initiative that aims to teach the employees’ children about healthy work ethics while nurturing family ties within the company.

With the company’s advocacy, President and CEO Dennis B. Jordan expressed his gratitude to the employee volunteers, parents, and teachers, and emphasized on the importance of supporting the talent of the children as he recalled his moment as a student.

“Nagpapasalamat ako sa mga teachers na nagtiyaga talaga para turuan kami nang maayos atsa mga magulang who were always there.” Jordan also left an inspiring message to the students, “Tapusin ninyo ang pag-aaral ninyo… sa mga kabataan natin, please make sure you put in the right work.

”Furthermore, he serenaded the audience with a duet with AVP for SHES-RAD Carisa Sari while Banda Kawayan performed more songs, including their own rendition of the classic Leron, Leron, Sinta and Happy Birthday for the employees.

General Parents and Teachers Association President and Banda Kawayan Officer Roselle Alibar showed their gratitude.“Maraming-maraming salamat po sa inyong patuloy na pagsuporta sa amin. Salamat po sa pagbibigay ng costumes, bag, at ibang supplies.”

Project Saysay is one of GMEC & GNPD’s advocacies with the mission to “Plant A Love” among the community through outreach programs led by the employee volunteers.

This program encourages monthly birthday celebrators in the company to choose a community or group they wish to share their special day with. Moreover, it aims to be the avenue for collective action of employee volunteers and be a beacon of hope for their chosen beneficiaries.
