Share a bread for the soul. Watch Tugtogsilog this coming Thursday, October 25, 2012 @ 8pm in Autonomy Bar and Resto Mandaluyong.
See you there!
My friends would always ask me, "is it sustainable?" I don't blame their skepticism, it is indeed more meaningful if your ‘help’ goes a long way and gives out a certain “permanence” rather than a short-lived comfort.
The people behind the Malaya Kids Ministries have been with the kids of Baseco for quite some time now, and like any other endeavor, it becomes sustainable because there are certain people who would support the cause.
I’ve seen the difference with how these kids interact with their elders. They had discipline taught by the volunteers. They sing praises to God and pray their thanks for each meal blessed to them. MKM has other projects lined up, like a library that is almost ready but needs to be filled with books and other materials for the kids amongst others.
But it’s not just the sustainability of a “structure” or a building. They have molded those kids’ characters to become good citizens as they grow old. Sustainable? Yes. But they would need your help.
