From Begging on the Streets to Being a High Achiever in School

When we first met Jemhaima and her mother, they were loitering on the streets, begging and scavenging for food from garbage cans. Jemhaima shared that begging and scavenging made her feel ashamed, but since her mother couldn’t attend and finish school, it was their only way to survive. Attending school was not a priority for Jemhaima and her family.

Jemhaima Walking in the Slums Where She Lives

The education of children is crucial for their growth and development, but unfortunately, many children, especially girls, are out of school in targeted slum communities in Manila. To address this issue, we aim to provide secure education for 200 out-of-school children in these communities through the Manila Slum Project. We focus on educating children and families about child safety and the value of education through organized community events and presentations. Additionally, we mentor and support scholarship girls to become education advocates in their community.

After a year of being part of the Manila Slum Project, Jemhaima was able to enroll back in school.

At first, she struggled to keep up with her studies, but she consistently attended her classes. Now, she is recognized as one of the top achievers among her peers in her grade level. While Jemhaima still has more to improve in her studies, she has come a long way from where she used to be. We are grateful for the partnership and support of our dear donors in helping these children live a life away from the streets. Their program has provided these children with the opportunity to go to school and has assisted them in their education.
