Construction of a classroom building for the Mainit National High School (MNHS) in Bontoc, Mountain Province is expected to be completed this year.

The Cordillera Golfers Foundation, Inc. (CGFI) has funded the purchase of construction materials to pave the way for the construction of a classroom on top a hill overlooking the village.

On September 2023 CGFI officials led by president Arnel Peil visited the MNHS to check the site where the classroom building will be built.

Based on the photographs sent by MNHS to CGFI, the school building is almost 40 percent complete, as residents, with help of the Philippine National Police, are offering free labor.

Personnel of the PNP Special Action Force led by Cpt. Marnetz Dawing together with personnel of the Regional Mobile Action Force Battalion 15 have been helping residents in the construction since last year.

The police personnel were even inspired to assist the community after being informed that one of CGFI’s incorporators is former SAF commander M/Gen. Rudolph Dimas.

In December 2023, CGFI joined the launching and formal turnover of a multipurpose school building at Kimpit Elementary School in Amlimay, Buguias, Benguet.

CGFI donated over P300,000 worth of construction materials to complete the building which was started through the efforts of the Parents-Teachers Association and the residents who first donated materials and extended financial assistance for the project. – CGFI release
