Children’s Fair Continues on its Eighth Year

UP VFC Children's Fair 2017 Main Pubmat

UP Volunteers for Children brings you this superhero-themed afternoon of fun with the kids of Meritxell Children’s World Foundation, Inc. and Manila Boystown Complex.


The UP Volunteers for Children (UP VFC) will launch its biannual Children’s Fair with the theme “It’s Hero Time!,” an event organized for the children of a chosen beneficiary to get to play, learn and relish in the simple excitement of being kids. Now on its eighth year, Children’s Fair 2017 will once again be a worthwhile venture for student volunteers to give and receive happiness by providing games and educational activities for the children.

This semester’s Children’s Fair will commence at 1 pm – 4 pm on April 1, 2017, at the College of Science Amphitheater, UP Diliman. Student volunteers from UP VFC and partner organizations will get to spend an afternoon with the kids of the Meritxell Children’s World Foundation, Inc., and the Manila Boystown Complex. Several booths around the venue will be set up with fun activities where the children can sing, draw and color, learn first aid, or share a snack after a tiring afternoon.

“Children’s Fair always provides a happy and positive environment for both the kids and the volunteers. It gives them hope that the world is kind, through this community that helps and cares for one another,” ChandaChing, overall head for Children’s Fair 2017, said.
