When asked what they want to be when they grow up, the children of Isla Verde, Batangas
seem to have a limited number of ideas in their minds: teacher, engineer, or police. Of the many children we asked, no one said they wanted to be a fisherman. The sad reality is that most of them, especially the boys, will end up becoming fishermen anyway. Many children end up dropping out of their early elementary school years as soon as they learn how to fish, having low motivation to pursue their studies and wanting to help out with supporting their families.
The Batang VIP team is determined to change this. Kidzania
is a museum in Metro Manila that allows children to experience a wide variety of actual professions in a fun and exciting way. By taking the children from San Andres, Isla Verde to a field trip here, we are confident that this unforgettable experience, supported by ordinary Filipinos, will inspire them to dream bigger, motivate them to pursue their studies, and change their lives for the better.FAQs
