Teaching Poor Kids in Marikina Philippines

The Goal

Supporting the education needs of young children in Marikina, Philippines.

Helping to break the cycle of poverty.

Covid-19 hit hard in the poor areas of the Philippines and along with storms and flooding life is not easy there. Many families have no money to feed themselves much less educate their children. Bing, is the wife of Dave Hargreaves, one of the Greenangels Woodchoppers, and is an Early Childhood Educator. She works in Marikina and is providing tutorials and food for some of these children. She teaches the Montessori method. Dave helps pay the costs for materials and food to support her efforts in educating as many children as she can.

There is much poverty in Manila and throughout the country, alongside much wealth. Bing and Dave believe, as do so many others, that one way to break the cycle is through education along with nourishment, particularly beginning at an early age.

Dave and Bing are another example of those who do good in the world.
