The VOTY Radio program Episode 27 highlighted how Apo Laki and ‘Beauty Kings’ played significant roles in empowerming the Filipino youth.
The Apo Laki of the Infant Jesus Montessori Center Youth for Environment in School Organization (IJMC YES-O), comprised of High school students, were the first guests to go on air. The group crafted original songs with themes that promotes environmental awareness and responsibility. These songs performed locally and internationally — with US, Africa and Japan off their lists. They already composed three songs and one of these is entitled ‘Sama-sama’.
An adviser for Apo Laki said: “Everybody wants to change the world but nobody wants to change. If we wish for a better world, we must start within ourselves. He encourages everyone to believe in the youth and catch their attention, and they can change not just for themselves but the world.”
