Summer Program in Tondo, Manila (Week 1)


May 6, 2018 | Sunday

Helping Land, Tondo, Manila, Philippines



We officially launched our Summer Program at Helping Land, Tondo, Manila!



In this month-long program, kids will be able to discover and enhance their talents as they will be joining various workshops like Singing, Dancing, Acting and Arts.

We believe that learning is not confined within the four walls of classroom. We partnered with different individuals and organizations to help the kids realize their full potential, cultivate their deep sense of social awareness and strong desire to make positive changes in their communities.

Somehow, they will also realize that through their own talents, they can make a change one step at a time.


After the usual feeding program, we divided the whole courtyard into four groups.

We had the Arts’ Corner.
