YOUNG FOCUS wants to see young people develop their (hidden) talents and gifts and, in doing so, escape the vicious circle of poverty.

In the Smokey Mountain area of Manila, thousands of families rely directly or indirectly on the garbage ‘industry’.

Jobs range from scavenging for recyclable materials to driving bike taxis. The average family income for a family with these jobs is $5 USD/day.

Financial constraints, as well as a lack of educational and social support, mean that many children are unable to complete their education, and in turn, are unable to break the cycle of poverty.

Young Focus

With Young Focus board member Iris we have planned a 2-day series of Career Preparation workshops for all senior high school students (Grade 11 and Grade 12). We tackle subjects like: writing a CV, work ethics, getting ready for college/ choosing a direction, how to present yourself, etc. Our students are really interested in these topics as they are very practical/relevant tools for preparing for their future!
