WOW supports the Durian Project in Manila, providing an
education programme for children who live in extreme poverty. In the locality where the project works, many of the parents work as daily labourers, earning less than £1 per day. The Durian
Project provides before and after school education to help the children improve
their grades, and gives the children a nutritious meal; for many this is the only decent meal they receive. The staff also work closely with the families, providing food parcels, and teaching them life skills. The staff now have a great relationship with the parents of the children, who now understand the value of a good education.
