Last October 20, Tulay ng Kabataan Urban Poor Community and Scavenger Children programs celebrated their 21th Foundation Day. At daybreak, hundreds of preschool children together with their parents – all clad in colourful costumes of Philippine festivities – had parade. As usual, each Childcare Centre was represented by a decorated float, a designed banner and flags depicting the Philippines various festive cultures. The grand party started by a mass of thanksgiving celebrated by our Executive Director Rev. Fr. Matthieu Dauchez in San Lorenzo Church of Navotas. The festive day culminated in a competition of Festival dance.
The commemoration was made possible through the cooperation and efforts of TNK Community Worker Volunteers and Staffs, parents, preschool children and tutees, as well as the parent/teacher working committees.
