Meet Harry!

Harry likes to study math and enjoys dancing and drawing

Harry is a handsome twelve-year-old boy growing up in Philippines. He received a fifth place award at school for “most cooperative” student. He participates in math camp and other school activities. He likes to study science and math. At home, his chores include fetching water and firewood. He also enjoys dancing and drawing in his spare time.

Harry lives with his mom, dad, three brothers and three sisters. His family resides in a bamboo house near the road and although it is simple they are happy. His father is a carpenter, laborer and barangay official, receiving a small honorarium and his mother stays at home. The combined incomes are not enough to cover their daily needs.

Once Harry is sponsored, he will begin to receive the tangible benefits such as education and nutrition. This will also allow the family to be fully integrated in a local caring community, with programs and services designed to improve their quality of life and empower them to break the cycle of poverty.
