Manila (Philippines): A future for children in the slums thanks to the School of Peace

printable version

It's not easy to grow up in Manila if you live in a slum. But something can happen, and that can change your destiny. A young girl can witness it, smiling, proudly showing her report card of her high school. Her name is Rhonalyn: since she was a small girl she had attended the School of Peace in the slum area of Banawe, thousands of shacks built with wood and alluminium sheets which have been moved away several times from a land to another one, in order to make room to new skyscrapers. She met her friends of the Community when she was much younger. But now she is older and they didn't abandon her.

It's not just Rhonalyn's history. In order to grant a future to the children of the School of Peace, the Community in Manila involved many people such as colleagues at the office, relatives, friends, asking them to sponsor her and other 20 teenagers, registering them to the college. Therefore some of those children who studied and played together singing songs of peace in a garage became computer tecnicians, graduated cooks, secretaries in a company. Now they too are helping the next generation in the School of Peace to dream a different future: through education, which will give them many more opportunities, but also thorugh friendship.
