School Bags & School Supplies to Orphans

This year we were able to donate school bags and art supplies to 2 orphan homes in the Philippines. A lot of children in the Philippines grow up in broken homes. Contraception is not widely accepted in Philippines culture and there is also a lack of sexual education in schools. This has to do with their spiritual and religious beliefs. These houses give these children a warm meal, a place to stay,  a proper education and most importantly a community to thrive in.   

The first home we visited was the Mano Amiga Academy located in Taguig City, Philippines. Mano Amiga is a beautiful organization that provides underprivileged families education, development services and empower families out of poverty.

We provided them 80 school bags and 20 pencil kits for the children. 

The 2nd home we helped was the Christian Praise Children's Home in San Fernando, Philippines. This home provides housing, education and food to transitioning orphans.

Transitioning orphans are children who grew up on the streets, who must be re-educated. Living in the streets of the Philippines is a different culture. They grow up with habits of stealing, lying, manipulating, begging, scheming and plotting their friends or family. The grow up not understanding the impact of their actions and faults. This home provides them a place to live a life away from the harsh streets of poverty. 

We were able to donate 23 school bags with full art and school supplies. Thank you for your support in helping us aid these homes!
