20 projects to help education, environment and healthy living causes to be funded by Coca-Cola
MANILA, Philippines; September 30-- After careful deliberation of applications from college organizations all over Metro Manila, 20 projects by  students that aim to help educational, environmental and healthy living causes have been selected and awarded by Coca-Cola Foundation Philippines, the social investment arm of Coca-Cola Philippines and Coca-Cola FEMSA Philippines, under its Coke Barkadahan Grants Program.
Awardees each received P20,000 for projects ranging from building mini-libraries near public elementary schools to reforesting the border of Lian, Batangas with mangroves.
The Coke Barkadahan Grants Program aims to open opportunities for Filipino college students to execute their own project proposals on environmental stewardship, education, and active healthy living.
"Coca-Cola wants to inspire the youth to be active players in nation-building,” says Cecile Alcantara, president of Coca-Cola Foundation Philippines (CCFPI).  “We believe in supporting the building blocks of every young person's development through education and health, and championing the drive to cultivate the spirit of citizenship."
The Coke Barkadahan Grants Program is aligned with the global Coca-Cola sustainability framework, "Me, We, World," which focuses on improving personal well-being ("Me"), building stronger communities ("We") and protecting the environment ("World").
Guillermo Aponte, President and General Manager of Coca-Cola Philippines and concurrently chairman of CCFPI; Juan Carlos Dominguez, Human Resource and Corporate Communications director of Coca-Cola FEMSA Philippines and vice-chairman of CCFPI; and Atty.
