Bantayan, Madridejos, San Remigio and nine (9) other Local Government Units (LGUs) of Cebu signed an agreement with The Ramon Aboitiz Foundation Inc. (RAFI) for the repair and construction of 218 classrooms that would benefit almost 10,000 students. 

The Php144-Million School Rehabilitaion Project was signed by the mayors and/or representatives of the towns of Alcoy, Aloguinsan, Asturias, Bantayan, Barili, Borbon, Carcar, Naga, Madridejos, Samboan, San Remigio and Sibonga  as a continuing commitment to provide the school children with a safer and more conducive learning environment.

Aside from building classrooms, RAFI would also assist the LGUs and the Department of Education in school governance.

“The challenge is not on fixing the school buildings anymore. What we need is to prepare the students so that they can compete,” said RAFI President Roberto Aboitiz, adding that there is also a need to build the character, competence, and citizenship of the students. 
As stipulated in the agreement, the 12 LGUs were expected to provide funds for manpower requirements as counterpart for the rehabilitation of their schools, among other obligations. The LGUs have also committed to assume full responsibility of the actual implementation and execution of the project.
