Hallo Hallo Alliance in collaboration with Action and Gate of Assets Foundation celebrate the power of children at the Philippine Children’s Summit 2018 on October 27 which brought smiles, inspiration and learning to 10,000 Filipino children who attended the big event.

MNL48, the Filipino version of Japan's highest-selling all-girl idol group AKB48, together with Kapamilya star Mark Neumann, Action’s Chikara Kids who came all the way from Zambales, Step Up movie star Mari Koda, and Movie Stars Café artists had a lively and entertaining sing and dance performances especially prepared to bring entertainment to the children from different public schools and Alternative Learning Programs (ALS) in Quezon City.

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.”

img6.jpg

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.”

img7.jpg

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

The music video, which was taken at Movie Stars Café and La Mesa Eco Park drawn inspiration from the official music video of AKB48's original version, "Sakuara no Hanabiratachi”.

“It’s quite similar po sa AKB48 song na pinakita po ‘yung paghihirap namin, ‘yung mga ups and downs sa journey po namin. ‘Yung sa music video naman po medyo light po, calm ‘yung theme. Halo halo po talaga, nakakatawa na nakakaiyak,” Sela said.

Sela also shared her excitement and happiness that their second music video is already out. “’Yung naging outcome po ng Aitakatta – Gustong Makita music video maganda po, nagustuhan ng karamihan. Dito po sa Talulot ng Sakura, I don’t want to get my hopes up, pero I know magugustuhan din nila ito dahil makaka-relate po sila. Super happy and grateful lang po talaga kami, sobrang heart-warming po ‘yung pag tanggap ng mga tao.”


Center Girl Sheki also narrated why she felt emotional while shooting their music video. “Nung nagsh-shoot po kasi kami diba po nasa nature ako, tahimik lang tapos talagang iniisip ko ‘yung lahat ng naging paghihirap namin sa MNL48 kasi hindi po talaga ganun kadali. Ngayon po unti unti na po namin naaabot ‘yung dreams namin,” she concluded.
