SM Group's 104th School Building

The SM Group recently turned over its 104th school building, this time in Roxas City, Western Visayas. The two-storey fully furnished school, President Manual Roxas Memorial Integrated School - South was made in accordance with specifications set by the Department of Education. 

It has four classromms, furnished with desks, chairs for left-handed students, toilets per classroom, and a special toilet for PWDs on the ground floor. 

Supporting DepEd's commitment to ensure that learners have access to water for hygiene and sanitation, SM Foundation installed a handwashing facility along with liquid soap for community use. SM Group will also help with the maintenance and upkeep of the school. 

It was earlier announced by DepEd that roughly 21M students are enrolled this school year 2023-24. Amidst this, the agency reported that only over 100,000 out of the more than 300,000 school buildings are in good condition.

 Believing in the power of education in uplifting communities, SM Foundation has been an active member of DepEd's Adopt-a-School Program since 2002, turning over more than 100 school buildings to grassroots communities nationwide. The said program intends to address overcrowding in schools and provide an environment conducive for learning.
