MAP BRINGS BRIGHT SMILES TO CHILDREN IN GEORGIA

ORAL HEALTH EDUCATION IN THE REPUBLIC OF GEORGIA

Adela, a Senior Brand Manager for Wrigley Romania, had the experience of a lifetime in September 2013. She was assigned to a small school in the town of Mtskheta, Georgia, where she was excited to find she could make a difference in children’s lives and develop professionally at the same time. Through the Mars Ambassador Program (MAP), Adela and six other Wrigley Associates gave children in the small town the gift of brighter smiles through improved oral health.

“Even though the other ambassadors and I came from seven different countries and very different backgrounds, it was easy to see that we shared the same culture: The Five Principles. Our Principles united us and helped us work together as a team from the very first moment,” says Adela, who feels the experience improved her ability to achieve her development objective of Managing with Vision and Purpose.

Our Ambassadors restored the school’s gym and taught students about healthy lifestyles with the help of Save the Children — a non-governmental organization that provides programs and services to children in need around the world. Together, the team taught oral health basics, like the importance of brushing teeth properly, and developed fun and interactive ways to share essential oral health messages.
