Providing a safe place to grow and thrive
Although the government demolished this makeshift community and constructed housing for 400 families, Lions recognized that there was still a need for a safe place for young children to play and learn. Together, LCIF and Lions from Japan and the Philippines funded the construction of a children’s learning center. The learning center currently serves nearly 100 children and is equipped with books, educational materials, recreational equipment, computers and an outdoor recreation space.
Local Lions are committed to supporting the children’s learning center in the Philippines, regularly volunteering their time for service projects and activities. Long-term plans aim to expand the center so it serves all children who live in the housing project. Lions are committed to helping provide opportunities for underprivileged children in the Philippines and around the world.
A stronger foundation, a more promising future
Languza is thankful for Lions’ support of the children’s learning center in her community. “We can give our daughter a very good center, to learn, to study…We thank Lions because they support projects that give us the opportunity to have this daycare center for our children, for their learning, for their development. It is a great opportunity for us,” she said.
