The event was graced by First Balfour president and chief operating officer Anthony Fernandez, who talked about how First Balfour and KidZania Manila shared the same vision of helping shape a better nation by nurturing today’s younger generation.
“Over the past four decades, our purpose has been to contribute to nation building and uplifting the quality of life of the Filipino. Like Kid-Zania, First Balfour believes in fostering a better world, a brighter future—and a brighter future comes from dreams and aspirations nurtured during the early years. We believe KidZania provides these opportunities to young minds whose future lies in creativity and enriched imagination,” Fernandez said.
With the opening of the Home Finishing establishment, kids can experience working as electricians and house painters.
“We’re proud to partner with one of the few companies that constantly maintain a triple certification for ISO and safety occupational health,” said Maricel Pangilinan-Arenas, state governor of KidZania Philippines. “The First Balfour Home Finishing establishment was built to inspire kids to explore jobs in the construction industry. Filipinos are known for their artistry and craftsmanship, and are sought after all over the world. This is something that we can all be proud of.”
The First Balfour Home Finishing establishment is one of KidZania Manila’s over 70 establishments with more than 100 role-playing activities.
