Mondelez Philippines will be collecting plastic waste and turning them into playgrounds for its Joy Schools program. The Joy Schools program is the Company’s flagship community program across South East Asia which aims to help children take positive steps towards their overall well-being. The program provides a 9-month daily feeding for 300 undernourished students across three schools in Metro Manila. This 2019 the program extends from nutrition interventions to helping students learn the importance of recycling and caring for the environment. With the help of the Joy Schools, Mondelez Philippines’ own employees, and partners First Balfour and the Philippine Business for Social Progress, ecobricks or plastic bottles stuffed with plastic packaging will be collected. These will then be turned into playgrounds for the three Joy Schools currently adopted by Mondelez Philippines with locations in Paranaque City and Quezon City.
