Transcom Cares in the Philippines supports Street Children
Transcom Cares believes in the power of the youth to shape our future and their role in the family. This is proven by the establishment of childcare centers on almost all our sites in the Philippines. That is why we decided that our first outreach activity for 2015 would focus on the less-fortunate youth near the location of our sites. The Children of Alay Pag-asa Christian Life Foundation is the first beneficiary of our outreach program.
Our 14 volunteers started 2015 by sharing a little of their time in helping to feed 51 children and engage them in educational games. Be Smart. Eat Smart. With these themes in mind, we decided to initiate another feeding program for the children of Precious Heritage Children’s Home for the month of February. Along with our 36 volunteers, we gave an informative talk and games about basic Food Groups and their respective role in proper nutrition.
To remind us of our younger days, another 34 volunteers recently spend an entire morning playing traditional Filipino games in Quezon City Memorial Circle with 69 street children. A delightful lunch soon followed, to reward the sweat and toil of the mini Olympics. Truly the gift of time is priceless and this is something that we are very proud of in our volunteers since they help make each of our activities memorable.
