This project will provide - for the school year 2019/2020 - all required school supplies, 2 sets of uniforms, a pair of shoes and a school bag for 300 underprivileged children (elementary to high school) from the Smokey Mountain squatter area in Tondo, Manila.
Young Focus has 700 students in its sponsorship program. We provide their school supplies and everything needed for their education. 400 students already have a sponsor in the Young Focus program. However, we still need sufficient finances for the remaining 300 beneficiaries.
Through the provision of all the school materials, uniforms, shoes and school bags, our beneficiaries will have the basis needed for going to school the school year 2019/2020.
Schooling is vital and one of the right's of every child. A child needs the opportunity to develop their talents and grow in knowledge. Also, no child should have to skip one or more years, risking dropping out altogether. We therefore believe in the importance and impact of an uninterrupted time of education, which will benefit them for the rest of their lives.
