I have almost reached my goal of raising enough funds on my blog to get two children to STOP working in the charcoal factory in the Manila squatter community called Ulingan and START going to school. I am so grateful to those who have contributed so far or have left words of care and encouragement.
Project PEARLS estimates there are 300+ school-aged children in Ulingan. Last year, 62 children were sponsored for kindergarten, elementary and secondary school scholarships. This year they aim to keep these children in school and send another 90+.
Can you chip in $5, $10, $20 or whatever to complete my drive? You can securely donate using the form on the top right sidebar.
Our few dollars added together to make this gift of education and hope will have an enormous impact on the future of these children.
