By all accounts, the 18th Annual Kids Can! Bazaar, organized by the community of the Multiple Intelligence International School, held at Estancia Mall on Sunday, December 9, 2018, was a success.
Formally opened by MIIS Founding Directress Dr. Joy Canon Abaquin, together with Pasig City Mayor Robert “Bobby” Eusebio, and ABS-CBN Chief Content Officer Charo Santos-Concio, the Bazaar is an annual project by the MIIS.
The bazaar aims to educate the students of MIIS towards Youth Entrepreneurship. As part of their entrepreneurship program, the students formulated their own businesses, from product conceptualization and ideation, to marketing, sales, and public relations.
One class sold a homegrown apparel line that incorporated indigenous Filipino weaves into jackets and t-shirts. Another class created tees that advocated for kindness, using powerful statements to bring home their point. Other products include snacks, stationery, and others.
The bazaar also advocated for Sustainability, with proceeds from the project going to the school’s Green Initiatives. Another beneficiary is the school’s Creativity Initiatives, including the Makerspace program, aimed at providing an innovation lab throughout the Multiple Intelligence International School.
Aside from students’ innovative products, attendees were also treated to performances by the students themselves.
Congratulations, MIIS Family! We are proud of all of our MI Kids and MI Families that truly Made A Difference!
