Fresh Start Fridays For Southside Dumpsite

The Fresh Start Friday Program started in 2011. Our program enables some of the most disadvantaged boys and girls from the area, ages 2-6 years old, to have a hot nutritious meal and a refreshing shower.  For many, this is the highlight of their week. ALIG collects various types of donations throughout the year to hand out during our weekly visits. We invite volunteers to come and join in the program, help entertain the children and experience a different side of the Philippines.
