Pinamungahan (also spelled Pinamungajan) is a 3rd class municipality in the province of Cebu, Philippines. Established in 1815 under the Spanish regime in the country, the municipality got its name from the diligent and hardworking people, working hand in hand especially during the agricultural harvest season. "Pinamungahan" originated from the visayan word "Pinamuhuan" for a worker's share for his effort during a farm harvest.

Out of 26 Barangays, Sitio Basan Purok Adelfa, Duangan Pinamungajan, Cebu which is situated on the mountain top was the recipient for PGRC Outreach Activity in June 2014.

As school year 2014-2015 open, total number of enrollees in Duangan Pinamungahan Cebu was only 200 students from Kindergarten pupils to Grade 6 students with 1 Classroom Adviser for grade 1 & 2, 1 Classroom Adviser for Grade 3 & 4, 1 Classroom Adviser for Grade 5 & 6, and a Principal who serve as adviser for Kindergarten pupils. Unfortunately, they only have 3 Classrooms and a principal's office in which Grade 1 & 2 will occupy on 1 room same with the rest of the class while the principal's office was converted as Kindergarten classroom.

As PGRC outreach program's commitment for Company Social Responsibility; the group decided to plan out the project " Oplan Gamit pang Eskwela 2014" in which 200 students will received notebooks, writing papers, coloring materials, rulers, ball pens, pencils and others materials.

The response of this activity was overwhelming. Donations from our Colleagues like PENTAX Medical Singapore, our Supplier, Contractors, anonymous donation from private individuals who shared their contributions in a little ways and from PGRC Department makes the activity became successful.

We also distributed slippers, candies and packed lunch to add the activity more excitement for the children.

With the joined effort of parents, barangay officials, city officials & teachers, the activity were very successful.

"Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today," commented Mr. Nilo L. Puspus, PGRC Head of Operations.
