The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic has created a lot of change in our daily lives, some more than others.
For public elementary schools, the challenge now lies in continuing with education, while facing the challenges of mobility, safety and families’ limited resources.
As a longtime partner of public schools, Mondelez Philippines aims to help schools rise up to the challenges they’re facing.
For the past nine years, snacks company Mondelez Philippines has been implementing the Joy Schools program. This is a school adoption initiative which aims to support the nutritional needs of students through a nine-month daily feeding program, and interventions for nutrition education and the promotion of active play.
The extensive feeding program has helped some 4,500 undernourished students improve their nutrition and well-being and all the initiatives are in line with the Company’s Purpose to empower people to snack right, with the right snack, for the right moment and made the right way.
Since 2011, the Joy Schools has adopted 16 schools nationwide, as three more schools have been adopted this 2020, namely Don Galo Elementary School and Fourth Estate Elementary School — both in Paranaque City, and Balara Elementary School in Quezon City.
