DIY moms help rekindle the dreams of Benoy youth with ‘Ang Pangarap Ng Anak Ko’ campaign

DIY Moms Philippines, an online community platform for all Filipino moms, has launched a campaign titled “Ang Pangarap ng Anak Ko” to highlight and bring dreams to life for Filipino children in the post-pandemic era.

A nine-year study conducted by Dream Project Philippines showed that “8 out of 10 Filipinos do not have a dream”. This study was conducted among young people – students and juniors from different socio-economic classes. Participants were asked, “Do they have a dream in life?” Their answers were “indefinite”. As a result, the organization believes that in order to nurture young people’s dreams, they need to be mentored.

In 2020, the impact of COVID-19 has had a negative impact on the most severe physical and mental capabilities of the elderly, but it is children who have suffered the brunt of the impact of the pandemic.

WHO Director: “Young people are at lower risk of serious illness and death from Covid-19, but they will be the hardest hit by the long-term consequences of the pandemic, which will shape the world they live and work in for decades to come” – Major General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus stated on his website .

During the pandemic, children around the world have struggled with important parts of their lives, such as the inability to go to school, make friends, go out and make amends with their parents under the restrictions of COVID-19.

The result of the study, published by SAGE Publishing and titled COVID-19: In the Eyes of a Filipino Child, stated that the majority of children see COVID-19 as deadly, frightening, dangerous, scary, terrifying, disturbing, disturbing, and fearful. The result of COVID-19 “has caused them to be overstimulated and absent from doing activities.” Instead of children worrying about their toys, children now worry about their “life and dreams.”

Another survey, “From Her Perspective: Impact of COVID-19 on Filipino Girls and Young Women – Philippines” conducted by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA Services) in the Philippines, stated that “7 out of 10 girls stated that the pandemic affected their education the most. They are more concerned about how they will be able to return to school than about being affected by the COVID-19 virus.”

Despite more than two years of disruption caused by COVID-19 for children, fortunately, with face-to-face classrooms reopening in the Philippines, children couldn’t be more excited about going back to school and pursuing their dreams, as UNICEF described the children as “extremely resilient, optimistic and resourceful.” “.

Since kids aren’t sure of their tomorrow, DIY Moms have given parents the chance to showcase their kids’ dreams and reignite them with creative solutions to make sure their kids still have hope for their future.

This initiative brought mothers together to showcase their children’s dreams through the online ‘Ang Pangarap ng Anak Ko’ campaign.
Members are expected to post pictures of their children in various categories such as drawing, writing, and storytelling. This gives Filipino mothers the opportunity to test whether their children still have hope for their future despite the hardships they faced during the pandemic.

With over 13,000 members, DIY Moms remains the best online community for moms in the Philippines where they can share common things about family life.
