In partnership with Ayala Foundation (AFI), Department of Education (DepEd), and the National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP), Bounty Agro Ventures, Inc. (BAVI) flew to Cebu City to distribute 130 Philippine flags at Mabolo Elementary School, November 8.
The activity was part of the Maging Magiting Flag Campaign, which aims to give 10,000 flags to public schools and police precincts nationwide by December.
BAVI President Ronald Mascariñas joined AFI Corporate Communications Senior Director Cel Amores, NHCP Head of Heraldry Teddy Atienza, and DepEd Cebu Assistant Division Schools Superintendent Dr Danilo Gudelosao attended the event.
A staunch advocate of patriotism, BAVI’s Chooks-to-Go has been traveling around the country with the campaign partners to pursue its goals. Previous flags distributions include those in Davao, Bacolod, Tacloban, Batangas, Bulacan, and Cagayan de Oro.
In his speech, Mascariñas thanked the project initiators and exhorted teachers and students to value love of country.
“In order for us to be a strong country,” he said, “kailangan na ang mga mamamayan mahal ang ating bayan.”
