My dream is to have an education
Last July, four communities in Manila North Cemetery, Paco, Balagtas, and Norzagaray participated in a series of forums centered on the dreams and reality of their children. Over 80 adults and 50 children shared that their dearest dream is to get an education.
ATD Youth Theater
Young people from Manila North Cemetery and Paco together with the community theater group Teatro Balagtas will present a play on October 17 at Rizal Park. Rehearsals are ongoing.
Balagtas Street Library
The nanays of Balagtas, Bulacan are organizing a street library this Saturday, September 28. What a wonderful initiative!
Last July 2-5, our two friends Michelle Baena Ciriacruz and Icia de Guzman joined delegates from various ATD teams to share best practices and do some communications training in Pierrelaye, France. They brought home important tools and insights that we can use in our awareness and fundraising campaigns here in the Philippines.
