Actor Dingdong Dantes said his heart belongs to the showbiz industry as he maintains that he has no ambition of entering the political arena.
According to the Kapuso actor, his showbiz life has given him more freedom to carry out what he wants particularly concerning his advocacy for youth empowerment and education.
The award-winning actor was the founder and chairman of Yes Pinoy Foundation, an organization established in 2009. Its website says the organization is committed to harness the immense power of the people and the youth to make a difference in building a better future for young Filipinos.
The organization’s first charitable thrust was the “Para Paaralan,” a roving bus equipped with computers and multi-media equipment that serves as a classroom where marginalized youths learn specially-designed alternative education modules through the medium of digital technologies and performing/visual arts.
The actor was recently seen at the launch of MTV EXIT (End Exploitation and Trafficking) Philippines at Crowne Plaza Manila Galleria. He will be hosting the human trafficking documentary “Enslaved: An MTV EXIT Special.”
MTV EXIT is implemented in partnership with the Philippine Government, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Australian Government’s Agency for International Development (AusAID).
