In 2013, Category 5 typhoon Haiyan, with winds up to 196 mph, devastated the Philippines. Sweeping across the land, Haiyan's winds destroyed hundred of roads, homes, and buildings. One school along Haiyan's path was Mangoso Elementary School in the Eastern part of the Philippines.
Four years ago this was the destruction caused by Haiyan:
The destruction caused by Haiyan left the Eastern provinces of the Philippines without an educational institution for students to attend. To ensure access to education, Parktivity took to reinstate the operations of the Mangoso Elementary and education in the Eastern Philippines.
Sharing the belief of helping communities and improving student education, Broadway Stages donated, on behalf of CEO Gina Argento, towards the reconstruction of the elementary school. The restoration program has had an immense impact on the community where Mangoso Elementary is located. Not only were the donations used to build the school, but funding was also allocated to provide locals with jobs in building the school and reintroducing capital into the economy.
Through our combined efforts, this is how the Mangoso Elementary School looks today! This is a great example of how powerful coming together and helping others can be!
