Viviamo! Inc., makers of the Belle de Jour Power Planner, is spearheading the first Freedom to Dream Summit on April 2019. The event is meant to inspire and encourage the Filipino youth to discover their dreams, pursue their passions, and make a difference.

7 Out Of 10 Filipinos Do Not Have A Dream—Study

The Dream Project PH, a non-stock and non-profit organization, conducted a survey among teenagers across the country. According to the study, 7 out of 10 Filipinos do not have a dream in life. Reasons include discouraging words from others, lack of self-esteem, lack of passion, lack of opportunities, and poverty.

Is it any wonder why many Filipinos don’t know who they are and what to do next? Darlyn Ty-Nilo, president of Viviamo! Inc. and creator of Belle de Jour Power Planner, hopes to change this. “We want to take action,” she shares, “by creating positive conversations on dreaming.” Through this initiative, Darlyn and her team hope to make a lasting change among the Filipino youth by giving them the freedom to dream.

Addressing The Needs Of Filipino Youth

The Freedom to Dream 2019 Summit will have three plenary sessions, addressing the factors that contribute to the lack of dreaming.

The first plenary, “Raising Self-Worth”, aims to address the discouraging words spoken against the Filipino youth and the self-esteem issues that resulted from this. Raising self-worth means having faith in oneself and believing that they are worthy of living the life they want.

Participants will hear from Dr. Gia Sison, a mental health advocate who hosts G Talks, a talk show in CNN Philippines. Rezza Custodio Soriano, a life coach and “transformologist,” will be one of the speakers on raising one’s self-worth.

The second plenary session, “Igniting Your Passion”, will encourage participants to find the purpose and passion that excites them and invite them to have the drive to stand up and persevere despite experiencing day-to-day challenges.

Prim Paypon, the founder of the Dream Project PH, and Aimee Hashim, founder of LoveLuxe Trading Inc., will be speakers for “Igniting Your Passion.”

Finally, attendees will know how to put their dreams into reality with “Making it Happen”, the event’s third plenary session. Participants will learn how to maximize their resources and act on their goals, despite the lack of opportunities and abject poverty.

Multi-awarded singer-songwriter Jose Villanueva, better known as Quest, will be one of Freedom to Dream’s keynote speakers. He envisions creating a culture of sharing positivity, harnessing his talents and influence to uplift the nation.

Advocacy Expo

Participants will have access to an advocacy expo to raise awareness on a wide range of advocacies that Viviamo! Inc. supports. In fact, 100% of the net proceeds will go to their chosen charity organizations. Apart from this, several social enterprises that highlight Filipino ingenuity and innovation will also showcase their goods and services.
Through this event, Viviamo! Inc. aims to give the Filipino youth a chance at a better future by empowering them to live their dreams.
