The Rejoice Children’s Village
Happyland in Tondo, Manila, is widely-known as one of the most impoverished areas in Metro Manila. One of the most densely-populated areas in the world, Happyland houses the nation’s vulnerable urban poor, with young orphans some of the most vulnerable.
In 2017, humanitarian organization 4P For People, envisioned a sustainable village that will be home to orphaned children from Happyland. In 2019, they partnered with Base Bahay Foundation to build the Rejoice Children’s Village in Nasugbu, Batangas.
The Village will consist of 4 Children’s Homes (8 units) which can house up to 6 children and 2 caretakers each, a multi-purpose building, and housing units to be granted to other urban poor families.
The Children’s Homes are set to be completed by 2020, where the children can begin their new lives and grow in a healthy and safe community.
