The Philippines is home to a staggering number of children who live on the streets. Faced with a multitude of every day challenges, many stop schooling. Some have taken on the task of encouraging the children to dream big for themselves and their families. These are the life and times of a volunteer tutor in the Philippines.

Map to Tutoring Location
We usually have our sessions at the 3rd floor of the Barangay Bungad Hall.
Barangay Captain Ricardo Corpuz has graciously allowed us to hold our tutoring sessions there. Bless his heart!
Sometimes though we need to move from the 3rd floor to the first floor if there are any events that need to be conducted at the 3rd floor but for the most part we will hold it there (unless otherwise announced).
Directions By Car:
From EDSA, turn into West Ave.
Turn into Baler St. (landmark Shell gas station)
Then RIGHT into the 2nd street - Resthaven St.
Afterwards, turn RIGHT again into a parking lot - the Barangay Hall is at the end of that small street.
Directions for Commuting:
Take an MRT ride to Trinoma, North Edsa
Get off and take a tricycle at EDSA cor. Bulacan St. (this is a small street next to West Ave., near SM footbridge, landmark is a bakery) - Take note, this is NOT the footbridge in Paramount.
Take the tricycle to Barangay Bungad Hall
Directions for Commuting from Espana:
From Espana Road, take Project 6 or Pag-asa Jeep.
Get off at West Ave. Cor. Baler (landmark Shell gas station). Behind the gas station, take a tricycle to Barangay Bungad Hall. See you all!
