Coca-Cola Foundation Philippines
In November 1986, Coca-Cola Foundation Philippines was established in celebration of the 60th anniversary of the bottling of the Coca-Cola in the country. The Foundation’s mission is: “To refresh the communities we touch through programs that provide Filipino youth the opportunity to become self-reliant, creative and productive citizens with the drive to excel.”
Coca-Cola’s partnership with TAYO began in 2005 through a special award dubbed as “Coke Barkada”, an award given to the youth organization that best embodies togetherness while making a positive change in the community. Since then, the Foundation’s commitment to youth empowerment grew ever stronger as it continues to support TAYO and its innovations year after year.
Other collaborations between TAYO and Coca-Cola Foundation include the Coke Planet Project and the TAYO Leadership Training.
