Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation (MPTC) together with its family of companies is one with UNICEF in celebration of World Children’s Day to commemorate the anniversary of the adoption of the Convention on the Rights of the Child on November 20.
MPTC positions itself as an ally of UNICEF in protecting the rights of every child and it is one of the supportive partners that responded to UNICEF’s call for child equality and inclusivity, in celebration of World Children’s Day.
“MPTC’s support to UNICEF in celebrating World Children’s Day is a milestone for our company,” said Rodrigo Franco, President and CEO of MPTC. “This highlights the responsibility of businesses like ours to adopt policies and develop programs that will promote children’s rights.”
“MPTC prides itself in providing safe and convenient roads and highways, and necessarily, children accompanied by their parents who use our facilities. It is our responsibility to promote the right programs that would protect and enhance the convenience of these children.”
In November 2021, MPTC signed a multi-year agreement with UNICEF to help promote the safety of children on the road by supporting 100 schools in high-risk areas, potentially reaching 20,000 children.
MPTC holds the concession rights for the CALAX, CAVITEX, CAVITEX C5 Link Expressway, North Luzon Expressway (NLEX), NLEX Connector Road, Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway, and Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway in Cebu.
