Don Bosco TVET Center-Tondo: Nurturing Volunteerism
Don Bosco TVET Center-Tondo provides skills training for out-of-school youth to give them a chance to improve their lives. The students, some of whom are JGF scholars, come from 17 of Manila’s poorest barangays.
The center may have closed because of the ECQ, but it hasn’t stopped serving families in the community. Along with student volunteers, they have been tirelessly bringing much-needed food packs from donors like JGF down to extremely poor families, many of whom derive income from informal work.
Though difficult, there is something about distributing packs from house to house that gives them joy, said Diana. “Sobra silang magpasalamat, kaya pasalamat din kami sa mga donors at may naihahatid kaming tulong.”
