Last July 14, Ms. Bambi Manosa-Tanjutco, President of Museo Pambata, and Ms. Maricel Montero, Executive Director of Museo Pambata received the check for Mayor Isko Moreno’s Sailun Tires talent fee from Mr. Ruben Tan, President of Sailun Tires Philippines and Mr. Jameson Ong, Vice President of Sailun Tires Philippines. This donation will help fund Museo Pambata’s Project “Bakuran”.
It is a new open space that is conceptualized to create awareness and connection among visitors on the importance of nature and the environment to our lives. Space will feature trees and plant species endemic to the Philippines. It will show the value of plants as food and as medicine and how anyone in an urban setting can grow plants and vegetables as a solution to food security.
“We are grateful for Mayor Isko's contribution and the fact that he supports Museo Pambata's mission. By opening the “Bakuran”, we will be able to encourage nature-friendly activities that children and families would love. Outdoor play is very important as safety is a priority during this pandemic. We want Museo Pambata to be an outdoor classroom and an alternative learning environment for them'', says Ms. Bambi Manosa-Tanjutco.
The “Bakuran” will also be opening soon for venue rental for birthday parties, small family gatherings, shoots, prenup pictorials, and day of play for small groups as part of the Museo Pambata’s fundraising efforts.
Mayor Isko Moreno took a tour of the Museo Pambata last June 24, during Manila day, and pledged to help the people behind it after seeing its new Bahay Pukyutan Playground.
