In the Philippines, 5 million children are exploited and forced to work; 1.5 million live on the streets; 14’000 are incarcerated; 100’000 are prostitutes: an inflicting reality.

One third of the population lives below the poverty line. Four inhabitants out of ten suffer from hunger daily; 43% of the population, thus 42 million of persons live with two dollars or less per day.

Stéphanie Roth, Siargao Masaya association founder, and Elisa Giorgis, development anthropologist, decided to commit their energy to fight for those children and families, thus to help them fulfill their dream: attending school and believe in a better future.
