Kasiglahan Scholarship Programme
This project is a scholarship program for children of squatter families who have been relocated outside Manila. Most parents are unable to find employment and if they do, are unable to come up with transport money; hence they are unable to work. There is a feeding program for children aged 1 – 5, three days per week. Hopefully with more funding the feeding program can be extended to 5 days per week.. Presently they have 52 children in high school and 4 in college. They provide them with food, books, shoes, tuition and clothing. Funded in 2007, 2006, 2005.
