Many children of the Parola slum in Manila are born in broken families, dire poverty and are often subject to all kinds of abuse and crime. Attending school and building a future are often an impossibility for them. SOFIA, through an innovative program called “ALSA BUHAY”, helps these children by providing an innovative opportunity of alternative education inside the slum. The educational program prepares them for a high school diploma equivalency. Over 700 children have already benefited from this project, but more support is needed to enable SOFIA to shape a better tomorrow for more children in the slum. Every euro donated equals one day of school for a child.
