Coca-Cola Foundation Philippines was established by The Coca-Cola Company and Coca-Cola Bottlers Philippines in November 1986, to demonstrate the long-term commitment of Coca-Cola to corporate citizenship in the Philippines. The Foundation envisions “people from all walks of life working together to make a meaningful difference, building a better Philippines for generations to come”. Its mission mirrors that of The Coca-Cola Company: To refresh the world. Inspire moments of optimism and happiness. Create value and make a difference. Since it began operating in 1987, the Foundation has helped to provide hundreds of thousands of Filipinos with better opportunities in education and in improving their financial livelihood. It has provided emergency assistance during disasters and implemented various projects on environmental conservation. The Foundation’s current programs are focused on enabling access to water in underprivileged communities, as well as providing education and development opportunities to Filipino youth. Funding for projects in the Philippines is available only for sites that qualify to the Foundation’s Little Red Schoolhouse and Agos Hydraulic Ram Pump projects.
