KSearch Asia Consulting, Inc. celebrated its 13th anniversary last October 21 by holding fun-filled educational story-telling sessions, wholesome entertainment and with lots of foods and drinks for the 150 Grade 1 to 3 pupils of the Rafael Palma Elementary School located in Vito Cruz, Manila Philippines. This memorable event was made possible with the collaboration of the Synergeia Foundation and the Museo Pambata.
Rafael Palma’s Principal, Dr. Pricilla Pradas, thanked KSearch and the Synergeia Foundation for choosing their school to celebrate a milestone anniversary through an outreach activity. Coincidentally, October happened to be the Children’s month, Dr. Pradas was happy to point out.
KSearch senior executive Ms. Karmeli Kintanar thanked Dr. Pradas, the teachers and the pupils for allowing to share their time particularly on a weekend. She then promised them to expect a wonderful morning of entertainment, gifts, and fun, but not without emphasizing as she addressed the children the value of liking to read and to keep on reading for life. She advised the children that liking to read will be their means to improve their future conditions in life.
Instructive story-telling and work sessions on arts and crafts were easily the highlights of the morning for the children which were presided by the “experts” of Museo Pambata. KSearch, on their part, prepared games well suited to this age group, which included dancing, racing, and other hilarious gimmicks.
The highly engaging morning activities climaxed with a sumptuous lunch distributed by the Ate’s and Kuya’s from KSearch while clowns provided their thrilling antics. The children were clearly overjoyed with the special treat that they just relished.
The KSearch employees were themselves overwhelmed with emotions as they started to head back home. It was, according to KSearch CEO, Mr. Manny Guillermo, who sparked this CSR initiative with support from Synergeia’s Dr. Nene Guevara, the most edifying celebration of any KSearch’s anniversaries.
Malou Antiojo of KSearch, who very capably inspired her leadership team to make the whole event flawless in planning and execution, could not contain her feelings as she happily exhorted: “Indeed, there is joy and fulfillment in giving and sharing”!
