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.

Help Brighten a Child's Future
We want to share with you the good news that we
have new materials
for our tutoring sessions care of Lorie Francisco
Thanks Lorie! These are arranged by grade level
so all we have to
do is work with the children on these English and
We will aid you in how to use them during the
Last Saturday's tutoring session, we had a good
attendance from the
children and a lot of first timers. We hope you
come back if you haven't

children see you come back,
the more they feel the love!!!
Helping a child to love learning is surely a step

know that you don't have to be a teacher to join us. You never
know how much of an impact you will make on a
child from the streets.
Even for a short
while you can touch a life. You can touch the future!
Come this Saturday?
You don't have to be a whiz at Math and English,
we just need you to listen
to the children and to help them read books
(provided) and maybe understand
their lessons (if you need assistance, other
tutors may be asked). Don't be
apprehensive about forgetting the basics from
gradeschool, we've forgotten
too. It's a team and we help each other
remember. What's most important
is that these children make a friend who
encourages them to go on.
Just 2 hours to encourage them that learning can
be enjoyable (or that it is
possible to understand) is more than
enough. Seeing people who care is enough.
