2016 June

Back to school!

June 21, 2016 | By |

IMGP4672After a great and wonderful 10 days Summer Camp in Quezon Province, we prepared the Back to School 2016 for all our children last mid-June. This is a crucial period especially for the ones who recently joined our foundation and will go back to school after a long period in the street. After a few months in Drop-In centers to help them become stable and quit their streets habits, they’ve been transferred in Residential Homes during May and June. In the Residential Homes, they find a family atmosphere and are enrolled in the neighboring formal schools where they mingle with other children of their age. The first day of school, as usual, revealed mixed feelings of apprehension and hope. Thankfully, the family atmosphere in our shelters is deeply helpful.

This is an important step in their life and a beautiful reward for all of us in our daily mission for those children in need.

A new Chairman for TNK: H.E Luis Antonio Cardinal TAGLE!

June 20, 2016 | By |

Version 2Since June 2016 H.E Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio G. Cardinal Tagle is the new TNK chairman. Current president of Caritas Internationalis, Cardinal Tagle has always been insisting on helping the poor. Not only through words but in having a great consistency in life.

Cardinal Tagle is close to TNK since several years. During his first visit at TNK, on December 2013, he said to a group of our former street children: “Sometimes, you may think that you are the ones who always get help…That is also true. But you know, you are the ones who help us. We learn from you how to be strong, how to keep faith and how to continue loving in the midst of our situations in life.”

Since that visit, Cardinal Tagle hold a wide range of meetings with TNK, for the greatest joy of the children! All the foundation, children and staff are deeply grateful to Cardinal Tagle of being the chairman of their large family.

 

Art workshop to help the children

June 18, 2016 | By |

IMGP4428During summer time drawing activities were proposed to TNK children, thanks to one of our staff Kuya Alex Cristo. Since 4 years he is working at TNK as a trainor at the workshop dedicated to our children with special needs. Kuya Alex was himself a street child. As he says, drawing has been a therapeutic support to rebuilt his life after being abandoned by his family. It’s in this perspective that Kuya Alex offered to our children a « summer art workshop » which ended with an art exhibit with all the productions of the children. A great event which highlighted talented children.

After the success of this summer art workshop, Kuya Alex proposes now every Saturday drawing lessons to our children. A great way to express the feelings they cannot say through words.
