ALIG Husbands: Mike Brock, Adam Bookless and Yann Cameli with ‘Team Batang Catiquiz’

A team of eleven 12-14 year-olds, from the Sitio Cataquiz community, has been chosen to compete in a football tournament organized by the DOLE (Department of Labor and Employment).  This competition is bringing together many NGOs working with children across Metro Manila to help raise awareness in the fight against child labor.

Our charity partner Kanlungan, an NGO working to eliminate poverty, chose the ‘Batang Cataquiz’ team and now a few of our members’ husbands, are coaching them!  Despite some torrential rain and a lack of sports shoes, everyone has had a lot of fun and the team is progressing well!  The tournament itself takes place October 17th and the coaches have high hopes for Team Batang Cataquiz!

For ALIG,
