Coca Cola Philippines recently donated a Php 4 Million Little Red Schoolhouse in Bukidnon. The Coca Cola Philippines Little Red Schoolhouse project aims to help eliminate the child labor practice. The Coca Cola Little Red Schoolhouse in Bukidnon can be found at the Annex of the Quezon National High School in Barangay Butong, Quezon, Bukidnon.
