Educate, Enrich and Empower underprivileged girls in the Philippines

Would you travel 6 hours to go to school?

They will. There are children in remote places in the Philippines who travel by boat, cross rivers, climb mountains just to go school.

How many times do we argue with our own kids to make them go to school in the morning?
Or, we complain in the winter because we have to bundle them up and drive them to school??

It is rainy season back home and most of the schools are flooded because of poor construction and very old infrastracture.  I remember when I little, my mom made me  go to school even if the water was knee deep!
I am 2 days late on my Gratitude Journal - it is never too late to say thank you once again to how lucky our kids are to have the education they have. 

Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you again,
The F.L.A.G team

It would certainly be good for our kids to visit a place like your home. It would help them feel more grateful for their blessings.

forgot to add...and maybe they would realize that they didn't 'need' so much stuff!

How true!
Our kids don't realize how lucky they are.
