For Jonalyn and her family, the dangers of local Filipino mythology -- which tells of monsters that steal children away during the night -- are real. Now, through World Vision, they are able to sleep soundly at night, knowing their house is safe.
At the age of 9, Miljhon has already seen some of life's harsh realities. Growing up in poverty, this young boy, his sister, and his classmates face significant hardships just to get to school every day.
Despite their circumstances, Miljhon and the other children have such pure hearts that they share with their schoolmates -- even though they too have almost nothing.
I have worked with World Vision for nearly three years -- yet I am still amazed by the things I see and the stories I hear. I am equally inspired by the drive and determination of people living in poverty to overcome their circumstances and build a better world for their children, their communities, our country, and the world.
Recently, I experienced firsthand the struggles children in remote communities face just to get to school, and I wanted to share this experience with you.
