Inspiring Kidz with New Identities

Eighteen children from Precious Children Home turned into scientists, policemen, pilots and broadcasters, and explored their “new identities” with joy, when Bukit Kiara Properties (BKP) brought them to a full-filled educational and interactive trip to KidZania at Mutiara Damansara recently. This fun outing was the latest project under BKP’s Caring Hands initiative, which aims to contribute back to the community.

KidZania revolves around getting children to be imaginative and to live independently in a kid-size city where they are able to explore and experience the realms of the adult working world by undertaking jobs and in return, earn and spend Kidzania money in the city itself. Each occupation comes with a set of tasks which when completed, will allow the kids to earn their salary in KidZos currency. They can also spend the KidZos on food, products and services.

The kids from Precious Children Home gave their best attention of learning and fulfilling their responsibilities of their “new identities”. They safeguarded the interest of the city as policemen, firefighters and lawyers; experimented new supplements at laboratory and fulfilled their talents as broadcasters, magicians and artists.

Jake, 15, who learned the protocol of taking off and landing an aircraft at the AirAsia Flight Simulator joyfully expressed: “I enjoyed it a lot because it was like a video game inside the aircraft.”

“This is my first time getting a make-over,”said 5 years-old Darshini who is the youngest in the group as she happily put on a lip gloss while becoming a beautician in the ‘beauty salon’.

“We hope this experience will be impactful and meaningful to the kids when they grow up and look for a career that they are passionate about. It is like taking a peep into the future and we hope this will inspire them to dream and plan for their future,” said BKP’s Group Managing Director, Datuk NK Tong.

After spending half a day at KidZania, the children were given a feast at Burger King where they also played a mini game and were presented with Christmas gifts and school bags to celebrate the forthcoming Christmas and in conjunction with the ‘Back to School’ season. To express their gratitude for the wonderful outing, the children entertained the BKP team with 3 cheerful songs.
