Follow Your Vote

By Edukasyon.PH

   Edukasyon.ph is the largest edtech platform in the Philippines empowering millions of Gen Z students aged 13 to 24 to make self-aware education decisions that lead to a fulfilling career and life.

The Voter’s Registration and Education Quest is a learning tool that can also be shared to schools and youth organizations, which can help broaden our reach in supporting the advocacy of youth civic engagement because it is not enough to simply register. Students should be made aware of their rights as a voter and how they can wield their vote for the issues they care about.
