“Natutunan ko po sa 2KK na isabuhay ang 5 Kap Loves (Mahalin ang Kapwa, Magsdasal Palagi, Sundin ang Magulang, Mag-aral nang Mabuti at Mahalin ang Bayan). Dahil isa po ito sa mga paraan para maging mabuting mamayan, kapwa at anak. Paraan din po ito para maging inspirasyon tayo at ganahan pang tumulong sa iba.” – Ayessa Khiz Balais, a 2KK YAPAK Scholar.
