Fresh Start Fridays For Southside Dumpsite

The Fresh Start Friday Program started in 2011 and enables the 60 most disadvantaged boys and girls from the area, aged 2-5 years old, to have a nutritious meal, a refreshing bath and clean clothes. For many, this is the highlight of their week. ALIG collects clothes throughout the year to hand out during our visits. We invite volunteers to come and join in the program, help entertain the children and to experience a different side of the Philippines.
