Feed the Tummy!
Feeding Program, 8:00 am to 9:00 am
Hi there! We invite you to join our daily feeding program for around 150 to 200 kids in the community of Helping Land, Tondo! Every morning, these kids line up as early as 6:30 am to have their breakfast before going to school. We serve hearty meals (such as champorado, rice with viand, pansit, bread, and banana) together with a dose of multivitamins. After the feeding, the kids also sing and dance their hearts out! It is definitely a unique exercise that is good for both kids and adults!
As a volunteer, you will be assigned in any of the following tasks: food preparation, set-up, serving, and cleaning up. And of course, you are encouraged to dance, play, and interact with the kids!
Toy Library, 9:00 am to 9:30 am
After the feeding program, we set up the toy library for the kids. More than just providing toys, the toy library provides a safe space where kids can just be kids – they can play around and interact with one another while developing important social skills. We also do some educational games and watch child-friendly movies on some days. Volunteers will help in supervising the kids while enjoying a fun playtime!
Time2Learn Program, 9:30 am to 10:30 am
We offer fun activities, educational experiences, and homework help for children and youth in all ages. Volunteers will teach kids reading, writing, and other exercises that may be required from the kids’ homework.
Join us from Monday to Friday and show your love for the kids!
