new beginning

Happy New Year!

To all my followers, I apologize for the lack of posts.

On my last story, an unimaginable event happened.

I did not blog.. for a long time.

As a result. I will be ending my blogging on this site.

Our website www.flagphil.com will be our one destination.

Still under construction. 

Friends, I hope you visit us from time to time. 

We also have a facebook page: www.facebook.com/flagphilippines.

Thank you for your incredible support, thoughtful words of encouragement

and believing in our cause.

lost innocence

When you pray to God every day to protect your family.  
You leave it with Him to do just that. 
Somehow, evil and wickedness will find its way to bring darkness. 
It happened. Evil came, as did darkness. 
One of our girl’s lost her innocence. She is only 9 years old.
to protect her identity

She was offered $2.00 by her predator to keep quiet.

To not say a word. To tell no one.


Thankfully, she didn’t listen. She came forward and shared this awful story with her mother. And in that spirit, today, I share this awful story with all of you.

Because we won’t accept hush money either. And this story needs to be heard. 

FACT. For every 3 Filipino children, one child will experience abuse. 

Not us. It will never happen to one of our girls.

But it did.
  All of us are deeply affected and disturbed by what happened. 
As are all of the staff and families of F.L.A.G.
Personally, I feel helpless. angry. confused. saddened.  How could this have happened?
Please help us heal.
Pray for her and her family.
And if you feel the need to help further, donate $2.00 to F.L.A.G.
 all monies collected will go directly to her family.
The $2.00 in offered hush money need not be remembered as that. 

Please know, there is no obligation whatsoever but for those who have asked, your small change CAN make a difference.
"Be the CHANGE you want to see in the world"
- Mahatma Gandhi

i love your thoughts and comments, to protect her and her family, please refrain

from using any names. Thank you!

With love and blessings,
Thank you Susan for helping me write this story.

finally.. we are reading!

thanks to YOU!

we have books.

we are now reading!

filling up the spaces with toys for now

Just another day at school

We are wishing for more books and shelves

Teacher Rochelle organizing our first book shelf!

Most of the girls do not own any books.

Public school does not allow them to take them home because they have limited supply.

Now they can dream and imagine the possibilities by reading.

The places they can visit, people they will meet.

Finally, we are reading. 

Note: Please accept my apologies for not updating as often. Our website is undergoing improvements and  soon we will have one destination. 

Thank you for stopping by,

World Food Day

Can you imagine yourself only eating one meal a day

How about feeling so stuffed and still you needed to eat that one last cookie

Or ``eat with your eyes``. Take too much and not finish your food.

Nothing is wasted here.

Once in a while, we will have a special meal just to give thanks.

Spaghetti is their favorite


Here they are!! 

Say Grace. Give Thanks.

Raise your hand now !

October 11 

Designated by the United Nations as International Day of the Girl

Creating awareness that every girl has a right to an education

Right to choose

There are millions of girls around the world who do not have that right today. 

We are giving 30 girls in the Philippines that right.

One day we hope that we can have more.

Raise your hand if now!

It only takes one girl.

Thank you for stopping by,

Craft time

I love rainy days..

but not for hours and hours ..

In the Philippines, rain can be non stop for days!!!!

We will keep the girls busy.. Craft time is a great way to spend rainy days at school

Take a break from Math ..

Hmm..what is she up to??

Hand made aquarium made from recycled juice boxes

So great that the girls at FLAG are getting this chance to make crafts

Still so many girls back home do not have any chance at all.

I wish we can help them all.

One day..

Thank you for stopping by,

Their dreams are finally coming true. Thanks to you!
