The Philippines School Expansion Is Nearly Complete!
(October 2012) The Foundation 4Life-sponsored expansion project at the Dona Justa Guido Memorial School just outside Manila, Philippines is nearly finished. We are anxious to introduce this new community to the 4Life family and look forward to a ribbon-cutting ceremony that will be held on November 7.
The school renovation is the first step for the community development sponsorship in one of 4Life’s Southeast Asia markets. This new addition represents the start to a new way of life for children in this Manila neighborhood. One of the two newly constructed classrooms will also be used to serve lunch to the children from local communities.
Once the lunch program is fully operational, Foundation 4Life will assess critical needs with regard to water and sanitation. Many of the residents have never had clean water to drink so hygiene and sanitation are new concepts. The full community development program will also address needs in the areas of health education and livelihood development.
The Dona Justa Guido Memorial School is the second project in Foundation 4Life’s community development program. The first was the Marco Aurelio Soto School community in Jardines del Norte, Choloma, Honduras.
