Dr. Jose Rizal once said, “the YOUTH is the HOPE of the Nation”. This idea should always be carried out by parents as they are responsible in raising their child. This program allows the children and their parents to bond with the reminders of leaders who had been supportive in the development of children. Mr. Carlito Iligan shared the 10 rights of a child. From conception of the reproductive cells, both from parents, the right of children begins.
