“This project is good. It will surely help the community if will be redeveloped. These students are the key to the country’s betterment,” the mayor added.
Meanwhile, according to Nike Cunanan, Nexus Coach, the inspiration behind the project was the earthquake which hit Pampanga last April.
The students, who personally experienced the tragedy with deaths, injuries and missing people in the province, came to develop the said project, he added.
