On August 14, 2014, Universal Robina Corporation rejoiced with Kariton Revolution kids during the opening of Dynamic Teen Company’s learning center.
The ceremony was marked by a ribbon cutting with Efren Penaflorida (CEO of DTC), Marc Acosta (Consumer Marketing Services, URC) and Kesz Valdez (President, Championing Children’s Community and 2012 International Peace Prize Winner).
Universal Robin Corporation sponsored the construction of the learning center at the second floor of DTC’s Red Building in Cavite. DTC is headed by pushcart educator and 2009 CNN Hero, Efren Penaflorida, and his mentor Harnin Manalaysay.
Mr. Nilo Mapa, URC’s Executive Vice-President and Managing Director, has high regards for Efren Penaflorida and his team. He admires DTC’s passion to spark a positive change in the country. URC is honored and proud to support DTC’s admirable endeavor to grant free education to out-of-school youth. URC has been actively supporting Kariton Program, one of the many academic programs under DTC’s umbrella project.
The newly-constructed URC Learning Center has classrooms fully furnished with chairs, desks, whiteboards, books and shelves for 9th and 10th graders. There is also an office where volunteer educators can prepare lessons, as well as laboratory for advance lessons in science. These learning facilities are part of URC’s commitment to provide support to DTC and its undertakings.
Here are some photos of the out of school youth who were present and performed at the event.
