Cherry Mobile’s corporate social responsibility project, through its MSN Foundation, had been reaching out to the underprivileged communities in the country since it was established.

In our fifth year of implementation, almost 60,000 indigent school kids from different parts of our country have received these ‘bags of hope.’ It includes notebooks, pens, and pencils, but there’s more to it than being just school kits given to them. Inside the bags are our hopes and dreams that they may have a better and brighter future.”

Besides distributing Bags of Hope, it also gives scholarship grants, builds classrooms, provides educational equipment, supports teachers’ training, and organizes youth camps, and among other related projects.
