Northern Star Energy Corporation once again demonstrated its commitment to social responsibility through its inaugural Sikap, Tulong, Sulong! (STS) activity in 2023. This time, the STS initiative aimed to benefit Sinsayon Elementary School in Santiago, Isabela.
One notable addition to this year’s STS was Project Marigold, a donation drive led by the employees themselves. This initiative allowed those who were unable to physically participate in the STS activity to show their support.
On June 2, 2023, NStar presented the Project Marigold donations to the school: 15 electric fans to create a comfortable learning environment, a water dispenser to promote hydration and health, and a 40-inch Android TV to enhance teaching and learning.
The following day, June 3, NStar employee volunteers joined forces with their NGO partner, Renovate to Educate (rED), to organize a refurbishment event at the school. A total of 43 NStar staff, with assistance from the rED Team, fabricated seven blackboards and ten bookshelves, repainted three classrooms, repaired a roof, and replaced five ceilings.
The STS program has been an integral part of Northern Star’s initiatives for the past seven years, serving as a testament to the company’s enduring commitment to improve and move lives forward by making a positive impact in the communities where it operates.
