As much as I love sharing uplifting stories to you and I do want to share some of the challenges we face at our school.
Meet Briony. She was our poster child. The camera captured her smile when we first met here in 2010. It was unanimous that her face will be in all our posters, flyers and website.
|Smile melted our hearts|
|Loves to read , she is so engage!|
Briony has been attending the regular public school system after completing her one year at F.L.A.G. We knew she has a lot of potential and can break the cycle of poverty within her family. She is one of the 3 siblings who are currently in our school. While the other 2 are still in school, her mom needed help at home. She is pregnant with her 7th child and going through a difficult pregnancy. Carol ( the mom) pulled her out of school to look after their youngest sibling (1 year old). We are all heart broken when we found out about this. No word on when she will come back to school. This will pull her back another year since she did not complete the Grade 1 program. Briony is 9 years old.
As of now, we don't know all the details. Within the next 3 months while I am in the Philippines, I will be on a MISSION. I need all the prayers and girl power from everyone to make a difference not only to Briony's life but for every girl that deserves this second chance.
Celebrating International Women's Day !
