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 and members of Tondo Futbol Club held a ‘dry run’ football clinic together. This was in preparation for eight football clinics which will be held in Mckinley Stadium starting in September and sponsored by Philam Life 7's Football League. This project will not only teach kids how to play football, they will also learn how to apply the core values of our local Tondo Futbol Club - which are effort, ambition, respect, teamwork and humility.
Thank you so much Tondo FC for providing this clinic for our Young Focus kids!
