From Streets to Schools

Dolores is one of the families we help in the Manila Slum Project, our back to school program in the Philippines. This project aims to assist 200 underprivileged children in Manila slum communities.

When we visited Dolores’ home, she was preparing the flowers she would sell in the streets that morning. She warmly welcomed us and shared her story. Dolores and her children used to live in a wooden cart under a flyover. Her children experienced being drenched by the rain and due to the dangers of living in the street, she lost one of her children. She was helped by a friend to get a small place in the slum and she built her house from materials they got from the junkshop.

 

Though they have that place to sleep in at night, Dolores and her children would still stay in the streets during the day to sell and beg. Dolores hopes for a better future for her children and that is why she is grateful that they are part of HONOR’s program in helping children from the slum attend and thrive in school.
