The last few months of 2022 were quite exciting. Young Focus started to plan a new center in Cavite - this is a new relocation area 40km south of our present centers in Tondo, Manila. Many people from Tondo have been relocated to Cavite by the government. Just before Christmas 2022 we started with the construction of this new center. It should be ready by July 2023 - just before the new school year 2023-2024 starts. More to follow soon!
Another special event in December was a Christmas party we organized for the school drop-outs children. The Christmas Party was a lot of fun with games, prizes, performances and food! During our this party we also had a goodbye for our dear teacher Rebecca, who has spearheaded the Love2Learn program for 11 years! There were tears of sadness, but there was also joy and gratefulness as we expressed our appreciation as students and co-staff. Rebecca has seen literally hundreds of school drop-outs go through the Love2Learn program, children who were then able to enroll into elementary school… some even reached college!
Nevertheless, the vision of reaching out tho the school drop-out children continues. Even in the new center in Cavite, we are planning to set up a special program for school drop-outs. Unfortunately more school drop-outs have been recorded in the Philippines since the pandemic. More help is needed to get these children back into school. Thank you for being part of that vision! And a very happy year to you all!
