KOF PH leads youth empowerment in Gat Andres Bonifacio Elementary School by providing students most in need with school supplies. Coca-Cola FEMSA Philippines (KOF) has always been a staunch advocate of empowering the youth, with one of our main social outreach programs putting a focus on improving the welfare of schoolchildren. Last July, volunteers from the KOF PH Head Office visited the Gat Andres Bonifacio Elementary School (GABES) for the Balik-Eskwela (“Back to School”) program—an event that seeks to boost students’ scholastic performance by ensuring that they have adequate school supplies. Nearly 400 students across seven distinct school levels were given a school supplies—from writing instruments and art tools, from notebooks to school satchels—by KOF PH volunteers.

Making sure that young students are ready for school—easing their burdens that they may fully focus on their studies—is part of the work that the Makers and […]
An annual campaign of Coca-Cola FEMSA Philippines goes to the heart of the global company’s thrust to empower the communities it belongs in. Coca-Cola FEMSA Philippines and its associates continued their annual tradition of proudly taking part in Brigada Eskwela, or the Back-to-School Brigade—a campaign led by the Philippine Department of Education (DepEd) to help repair and prepare public schools nationwide before the regular opening of classes come. This year, our KOF volunteers spent a summer afternoon in the sponsored schools of their communities: painting walls, repairing chairs and tables, and leading general cleaning activities—and thus making sure that schoolchildren will return to clean, safe, and prepared schools this academic year. In the Philippines, May is Volunteerism Month—a commemoration realized by thousands of KOF PH associates all over the country, who staunchly believe that volunteerism plays an important role in our community development efforts.
