GMA Network, as part of its environmental advocacy project Kapuso ng Kalikasan, recently partnered with Maynilad to adopt one hectare of tree planting site in the Ipo Watershed.
Under Maynilad’s ‘Plant for Life’ program, its partner-communities planted 400 Narra saplings at GMA’s site in Mt. Balagbag, which is part of the Ipo Watershed. This initiative aims to rehabilitate and reforest Metro Manila’s main sources of water supply to help prevent land erosion, flooding, and drought.
“Beyond the Network’s thrust of providing quality news and entertainment to the public via our various platforms, we remain committed to helping protect our environment through one of our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programs, Kapuso ng Kalikasan,” said GMA Network Vice President and Head of Corporate Affairs and Communications Angela Javier Cruz.
“We hope that through this partnership with Maynilad, our fellow Kapuso would also be encouraged to do their part, whether big or small, in the preservation of our common home,” Javier-Cruz urged.
For several years now, GMA has been working hand in hand with Maynilad by deploying employee-volunteers, dubbed GMA G.I.V.E.S. (Guide, Interact, Volunteer, Educate, and Serve), to the latter's coastal clean-up and tree planting activities.
