METRO MANILA, PHILIPPINES
Access to education is not always a given in the developing world, but part of the long-term goal in each FH partner community is accessible education. Child sponsors, parents, teachers and the children themselves all play a part in making these promising changes.
In a major turnaround, the drop-out rate has decreased by 50 per cent for primary and secondary schools. This is thanks to FH’s emphasis on the value of education when speaking with parents, and through the tutoring program set up with university students from the city. With the extra academic help and encouragement, students are improving their reading comprehension and are inspired to continue their studies!
