First Metro Investment Corporation, together with its subsidiaries First Metro Securities Brokerage Corporation and First Metro Asset Management, Inc., embarked on a transformative CSR mission through Brigada Eskwela. Employee volunteers of the First Metro Group joined hands to provide a more conducive learning environment for the students of Jacinto Zamora Elementary School (JZES) in Pandacan, Manila by repainting the classrooms and school canteen in time for the opening of classes. The First Metro Group also donated buckets of paints and essential painting materials. Through the vibrant transformation of the school premises, the Group hopes to inspire a love for learning and foster a learning environment where young minds can thrive and grow.
Brigada Eskwela is an annual event that brings together parents, teachers, students, local government units, and various stakeholders to prepare public schools, aiming to create a safe, clean, and conducive learning environment for public school students. The theme of this year’s Brigada Eskwela is “Bayanihan Para sa Matatag na Paaralan”.
