The Student Reps of Mozilla Philippines played an essential role in the local community’s success this year. Since its ‘soft’ relaunch last 2011 by Mozilla, Filipino Mozilla Reps have been actively recruiting students through Campus Tours, MozCoffees, Open Web Days and other events like Y4IT and Software Freedom Day.
