Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC) and the Jacobo Z. Gonzales Memorial School of Arts & Trade (JZGMSAT) have solidified their commitment to quality education and knowledge-sharing through the renewal of their memorandum of agreement (MOA).
IPC, led by President Tetsuya Fujita and Executive Vice President Shojiro Sakoda, handed over a state-of-the-art 4-post lifter with wheel aligner, along with a unit of the Isuzu D-MAX pick-up, to TESDA CALABARZON Regional Director Baron Jose Lagran and JZGMSAT Vocational School Administrator Benito Reyes.
Initiated in 2017, this CSR initiative has previously provided the school with essential resources such as desktop computers, mock-up Diesel engines, and two units of automotive lifters, all actively used by service mechanic trainees in practical classes.
Following the spirit of their Auto Mechanic school in Tacloban, IPC extends specialized training programs within the MOA. These programs encompass Diesel Engine Technology, Common Rail Fuel System, and Engine Management System, enhancing the company’s knowledge-sharing efforts.
Expressing gratitude, Reyes stated, “We are very thankful to Isuzu Philippines for their continuous support to our vocational school. The equipment and technical training that they provide to us are all very beneficial in improving the competency of our trainees. This will truly help them in their practical classes and prepare them for real-world scenarios.”
IPC’s dedication to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has manifested across various nationwide endeavors. However, this partnership with JZGMSAT holds a special place, as Fujita emphasized, “We truly believe in the power of education. This is something we can give to the younger generation and hope that it will be able to change their lives in the future.”
