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.

“Heartfelt” Music With Rotaract Clubs 😊

“Heartfelt” is the name of the Rotoract Club’s monthly event with our YoUNgLI kids(*). The Rotaract Club of Manila, together with the Rotaract Club of San Antonio de Padua, held a great music lesson, teaching basic voice lessons and ukulele playing. They also made a mashup of the song ‘One Day’ and asked a YoUNgLI participant to do a rap. Afterwards we presented a token of our appreciation and enjoyed refreshments together.
Thank you so much for coming Rotoract Clubs of Manila and San Antonio De Padua! 😊
