Multi-awarded furniture designer Kevin Cobonpue partners with MovEd (Molding Optimism and Values through Education) to support early childhood education.
Exclusively crafted for the benefit of Move.org Foundation, Cobonpue made a serving plate called Banca inspired by a Filipino fishing boat. It comes in different sizes and represents the proverb, “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime” – a fundamental principle in the advocacy of education for children.
According to Alexandra Madrigal Eduque, Chair & Founder of Move.Org Foundation Inc.,
more than 60% of children do not have access to early childhood education and MovEd is one of the few non-profit organization that have chosen to focus on this subject.
“MovEd (Molding Optimism and Values through Education) is proud to partner with well-known, globally recognize,d and multi-awarded furniture designer Kenneth Cobonpue. It is our belief that Early Childhood Education is the key to succeeding in breaking the vicious cycle of poverty in the Philippines.
“Like Mr. Cobonpue, we also believe that the key to success is to encourage them to be self-confident and independent; to give them a sense of hope and to encourage them to dream. We thank Mr. Cobonpue for his generosity and continued support in our cause,” she said.
Founded in 2012, MovEd is a non-stock, non-profit organization dedicated to providing holistic early childhood care, education, and development programs to children in underserved communities in the Philippines. They are currently in the process of writing-up its own program for the early years, in the hopes of being able to partner with local governments to help children
