Wilcon Provides Support to PFST 2012-07-31 15:51:15


     Wilcon Builder's Depot has been a strong supporter of the Philippine Foundation for Science and Technology (PFST), providing support on two separate occasions to the foundation.

From mid-January through to the end of February 2012, PFST conducted "Adventures in Discovery Travelling Science Centrum": an exhibit located at the Siargao National College of Science and Technology.  Wilcon's support came in the form of sponsoring the transportation of two industrial-scale container vans for the exhibit's use.  The exhibit was a successful one, with over 15,000 visitors and students learning about scientific concepts.  These concepts were essential, as they also discussed how science aids in depressed, deprived, and underserved (DDU) areas like Siargao Island.

More recently, Wilcon donated building materials to PFST for the repair and enhancement of the galleries of the (PSC) Philippine Science Centrum at Riverbanks Center in Marikina.  The material value of the donation amounted to PhP117,000.  The full renovation was completed prior to this writing.

The PFST is non-profit organization whose main mission is to promote science and technology consciousness among the youth, the general public and various sectors of the society.  The Philippine Science Centrum is their flagship program.

Wilcon has diverse portfolio of corporate social responsibility efforts, and supporting the development of scientific awareness among Filipinos is part of that.  Wilcon shares in PFST's vision of a better Philippines, and is happy to assist in any way it can.
