In this two-day event, KCFI shared its advocacy, programs and projects that currently support public school students and teachers to more than 80 guests who visited the booth. They also had the opportunity to express their thoughts on camera as to what they can do to “disrupt for social good” which was the event’s main theme.
On the second day of the expo, the LCF Education Committee spearheaded by Edric Calma, KCFI Director of Operations, invited celebrity singer and host Marlo Mortel to do a live version of Knowledge Channel’s newest mobile game show “Knowledge on the Go”.
