Why Do We Do The Things We Do?

In this busy and competitive world, it's easy to get lost in the hows and whats of the things we do. We often forget the reason behind our work. As it is important to know how and what we are going to do, we have to remember: Why do we do the things we do? #ParaSaBata

OUR REASON FOR BEING

Everything that we do — from publishing superior learning materials, to providing ISO-certified printing services, to holding relevant professional development seminars for educators and school administrators — are ultimately for the child (“Para sa Bata”). But we are not content with simply serving the child; we envision a Filipino Whole Child: a child who’s safe, healthy, challenged, supported, and engaged.
