Empower 50 Youths to Protect their Environment

Performing in their workshop!

Thanks so much for your support! Because of your generosity, we've been able to hold a theatre workshop for the kids at Buklod Ng Kabataan. We were going to tell you all about it in this update, but we thought it might be better to let the kids tell you about it themselves.  

Grant maker "Burners Without Burners" has given the youth group their own blog, and their first post is live. Here's one of our favorite quotes:

“We are teenagers who live in a high-risk area here in Banaba San Mateo, Rizal Philippines. Why are we a high-risk area? It’s because there are two fault lines near Banaba, the west and east valley fault line and we are also in a water catch basin area. These factors make us particularly vulnerable to floods, erosion and earthquakes. “

The kids are planning an autumn and winter full of activities. We hope you’ll help us ensure that those activities succeed by giving what you can to fund these kids’ great work! 

Thanks so much, and very warm regards!
