Mr. Hajime Yokoto, Action President, talked about happiness and attitude in achieving success. "Dapat talaga maging masipag, maging mababait na bata sa kapwa, at walang kaaway para maraming tutulong sa atin."
Hashtags Maru, Kid and Rayt were also present during the event to bring joy to the kids and to distribute the laptops donated to the Department of Education (DepEd) by Hallo Hallo Alliance. "Nakakatuwa naman kasi malaking tulong yan sa lahat ng mga kabataang nag-aaral ngayon lalo na online diba, kapag kailangan mag-research," Maru said.
Joining the special day on behalf of Superintendent of DepEd Quezon City Division Office, Dr. Elizabeth Quesada, was Mr. Philip Austria who emphasized what children can do in the society. "Isipin natin kapag nagsama-sama ang mga kabataan sa isang maganda at maayos na paglilingkod, mararating din natin ang pinapangrap nating buhay dito sa Pilipinas."
Comparing these children to a tree which starts with a small seed, he also noted that people should not take for granted what children can do. "Layunin ng Philippine Children's Summit na pahalagahan ang mga kabataan, ang susunod na bida ng Pilipinas dahil dito magpapatuloy ang magagandang sinimulan sa bansa. So tandaan ninyo na minsan lamang tayo maging bata, anuman ang mag problema o paghihirap lahat yan importante patungo sa daan natin sa tagumpay."
A 12-year-old fourth year high school from Toro Hills shares an inspirational message to her co-students present at the venue. Starting her speech with the question, "ano nga ba ang maaari kong gawin upang maging maunlad ang Pilipinas? Sa unang tingin ay parang napakasimpleng tanong lang 'yan ngunit kung pag-iisipan lang ng mabuti ay napakahirap nitong gawin."
Irish Hazel emphasized that taking your studies seriously would definitely help lower down the unemployment rate in the country. "Ako bilang isang bata, ang aking magagawa ay limitado ngunit buo ang aking paniniwala na ito ay magbubunga ng maganda at pang matagalan. Isa sa pangunahing sangkap sa maunlad na bansa ay magkaroon ng disiplina sa sarili, mag bahagi ng kaalaman at mag-aral ng mabuti upang makapagtapos at magkaroon ng magandang trabaho, malaking ambag ito sa ekonomiya ng bansa," she said.
"Kapwa ko kabataan tayo ay magtulungan, buksan ang mga daungan upang maikalat ng bawat isa ang taglay na kakayahan, kaalaman at talento tungo sa ikauunlad ng bansa," she concluded.
MNL48 Center Girl Sheki, on the other hand, expressed her sincerest gratitude towards the students who came and challenges them to take an action. "Thank you po kasi binigyan niyo kami ng oras para mapanuod kami. Ang purpose talaga ng event na 'to is to empower youth. Kaya po laging sinasabi na tayo ang pag-asa ng bayan, bakit hindi natin patunayan?"
The company hopes that such event will continue every year to provide a fun and inspiring day to the children to give them a break from their day to day activities with the help and support of different

A diverse and dynamic crowd of over 1,200 professionals, experts, and leaders all gathered at the SMX Convention Center on August 29 and 30 for the much anticipated 12th Philippine HR Congress. Among them is Hallohallo Inc.'s very own, Ms. Ma. Lucia Cielito D. Camayang, HR Manager and Ms. Gina S. Dalisay, HR Officer.
The Philippine HR Congress is a yearly event organized by ARIVA Academy Philippines which had its humble beginnings with their first congress in 2006. Every theme is uniquely conceptualized depending on the current or imminent trends in the world of business and how HR can grow and transform as time goes by.
This year's theme is called "PRISM of Possibilities: Focus on the Future", where the word PRISM stands for the five essential components of a Human Resources Management—People Performance Management, Recruitment, Onboarding and Retention, Innovation and Improvement, Strategic HRM,and finally, Motivation and Employee Development.
A group of distinguished local and international speakers were brought together to discuss modern HR subject matters that professionals must know, need, and do to adapt to the ever changing landscape of society.
Mr. Colin Blackwell, pictured above, inspires the audience to reinvent human resources by adjusting and welcoming technology and modernization, especially with the rise of artificial intelligence.
Dr. Roland Sullivan, one of the original 100 Change Agents in the world and CEO and founder of Sullivan Transformation Agents, encourages the HR community to be the facilitator of change and to take a leap into the future as we enter a so-called age of transformation.
As the congress reached its culmination, the event's organizers called for a celebration of HR Appreciation Day, to give the HR community recognition and praise for their countless hours of hard work and perseverance to make sure their respective companies are working like a well-oiled machine.
