A recent study conducted by Dream Project PH showed that 7 out of 10 Filipino teenagers lack or does not dream.
The 9-year study, which covers 614 Filipino teenagers from 54 provinces in the Philippines, also showed that socioeconomic class was not directly connected or a reason for a person to lose or not have a dream.
“It turns out that discouraging words from others was the most common reason behind the phenomenon, followed by the lack of self-esteem, lack of passion, lack of opportunity, and lastly poverty,” said the website Tech Shake, which published the study.
Launched in June 2013, Dream Project PH is a volunteer-based organization with an aim to build and support Filipino dreams among those in the underprivileged communities in the Philippines.
To help teens to have and chase after their dreams, the group came up with a list of inspiring women, which will be featured through a collection of 20 videos to be released on Facebook.
