It was a hot day in Manila one Sunday when our school gave gifts and tokens to the less privileged kids in Tondo. The kids were even happy when they received their first lesson on that day about proper hygiene. Kids should not be deprived of having the best education they are supposed to have. We can change the impression that poverty gives them a reason not to grasp big, individual opportunities in society. And who knows? Educating them might even give us more reasons to have their smile.
