Knowledge Channel Foundation, Inc. celebrated a night full of hopes and dreams through the virtual graduation of Batch 2020 interns and volunteers on Thursday, July 16, 2020.
Inspired with the theme “Colored Glitches”, KCFI motivated the graduating interns and volunteers to continue to bring life and color to the Filipino children even in these trying times.
“Despite all the challenges we are facing as a nation this year, the Knowledge Channel Foundation continues its work in the service of the Filipino children. We continue to produce video lessons, broadcasting them on cable TV, and exerting all efforts to widen our reach once again and bring learning to children that needed it the most,” KCFI President and Executive Director Rina Lopez Bautista said as she opened the ceremony.
“Thank you for sharing our advocacy and doing something good for the children of the Philippines specially at this time,” said Mr. Edric Calma, the Knowledge Channel’s Head of Operations as he thanked the interns and volunteers for their work in the middle of the pandemic.
This year, 331 interns and volunteers from 21 different colleges and universities participated in the foundation’s Internship Program to learn and hone skills in animation, graphic design, research, game development, IT and web application, and marketing with the purpose of serving the Filipino children.
Mistral Ira Reyes, the Most Outstanding Intern of Batch 2020 shared that grit and passion were the most important values she learned throughout her time of work and volunteer in Knowledge Channel. She went on to encourage her fellow graduates with the words, “Given the challenges we face today, let us remember to not let the grit inside of us fade away and to keep the fire of passion inside your hearts.”
