From slum to a better home
Currently in Bacolod, Philippines for a Youth Expedition Project (YEP). This photo depicts the struggle of Filipinos to improve their lives. She's in deep thoughts about what the government must do to improve her quality of life. Private citizens can do their own share of "bayanihan" and need not wait for the government to act.
This picture gives me strength to continue to help our poor communities. The discrepancy of the rich and the poor in the country is unbelievable, unacceptable. Literally, sometimes just a wall divides a posh village from a slum area.
This kid deserves a better future. Do some volunteer work and be a hero in your own simple way. They deserve a better future.
