From SIKAT scholar to EDC employee: how EDC sparked a regenerative mindset in Grace Tito

Sixteen years ago, I was only an innocent kid inspired by how Energy Development Corporation (EDC) elevated our community through its projects in Negros Oriental.

Ten years ago, I became an EDC-SIKAT scholar, and it changed my life.


Six years ago, with EDC’s support, I saw my name in the roster of accepted students at the University of the Philippines Cebu. It was the best feeling in the world!


After graduating from college, that feeling was topped by another milestone—landing a job at EDC. I never thought that I had the potential to succeed. It feels great to share the same values with the largest pure renewable energy company here in the Philippines.


EDC sparked change in my life, and all of us can spark the same change in the world if we shift to 100% clean power and unite for a regenerative future. #WeAreEDC #ThankYouEDC
