SNAP stays true to positive change



Participants from local government units and indigenous people’s organizations from the province of Ifugao, together with SNAP leaders pose for a solidarity picture during the Host Communities’ Forum at Santiago City.

On its 11th year, renewable energy company SN Aboitiz Power-Magat Inc. (SNAP-Magat) reaffirmed its purpose to power positive change. SNAP-Magat hosted the annual host community forum which recently gathered close to 200 participants from host local government units and indigenous peoples’ organizations from Ifugao, Isabela and Nueva Vizcaya.

Ifugao Vice Governor Glenn Prudenciano; Diadi, Nueva Vizcaya Mayor Sandy Gayaton; Ramon, Isabela Vice Mayor Nestor Banhan; sectoral representatives, and members of indigenous people’s organizations attended the forum, as the Isabela-Vizcaya leg was held on 19 November while the Ifugao leg was held 20 November both at Santiago City, Isabela.

SNAP-Magat president and chief executive officer Joseph Yu reiterated the company’s promise to continue “powering positive change” through its corporate social responsibility program.

Since 2008, the company has undertaken various projects worth around P259 million for the provinces of Ifugao, Isabela, and Nueva Vizcaya. These projects have developed community-initiated infrastructure, education, livelihood, indigenous culture, governance, health and the environment.

Gayaton thanked SNAP for its support over the years.

“Let’s keep our partnership, be one, and serve the people who should really benefit from the funds that come from SNAP,” Gayaton said.
