The education system in the Philippines is less than sufficient and many kids fall through the cracks primarily because of their needs at home. Furthermore, often youth do not have the resources or opportunity to develop skills such as cooking, playing a musical instrument or performing art.
Youth frequent our community center, coming every afternoon to receive tutoring, music lessons and other enrichment activities. Tahanan is one of a kind in the town of Palo! Without this kind of investment, pure boredom or lack of options can lead to illicit behavior. We are happy to provide kids with healthy outlets to have fun and make friends in a hospitable, safe place.
How You Can Help
Providing children with a healthy outlet for fun and fellowship is important for any youth culture where boredom can lead to poor behavior. Please help us continue to offer a hospitable, safe environment for young people to develop friendships, receive academic support, and learn skills.
