AIESEC brings gifts and Jollibee mascot to Goducate musicians in Laguna

On April 17, 2017, 30 youths from the Goducate music program in Laguna, Philippines, not only received a set of school supplies but also watched a dance by the Jollibee mascot. Jollibee is a Filipino multinational chain of fast-food restaurants. For some of the youths, this meeting with the full-sized mascot was very memorable because it was their first encounter with it.

The occasion was a Gift-Giving Event conducted by AIESEC members at the University of the Philippines. They had chosen the Goducate music program as their beneficiary for this event. At this event the 30 youths demonstrated their violin-playing and recorder-playing skills. In turn the 25 AIESEC members distributed gift packs containing a notebook, pencils, crayons, paper, and a sharpener.

AIESEC is a platform for young people to explore and develop their leadership potential. It is an independent, international, non-profit, non-political organization run by students and recent graduates of institutes of higher education. Founded in 1948 in 7 countries, it is now present in 126 countries and territories. AIESEC was originally an acronym for Association Internationale des Étudiants en Sciences Économiques et Commerciales, but has now become the name of the organization.

Goducate is very grateful to the AIESEC members of the University of the Philippines UP. We share their vision and mission of helping the community.
