Cordillera - Global Citizen Athlete Ambassadors Angela Lee, Brandon Vera and Team Lakay champion Eduard Folayang toured the Tondo area in Manila to give hope  and inspire children about the importance of education. 

Together with Young Focus team, the athletes toured the area, met community members and visited Young Focus centers that cater children from infancy, preschool, all the way up to the tertiary level. 

The athletes spent their times helping the kids with their lessons such as Mathematics and English. They also shared their personal stories and told the children the importance of education. 

Some 100 Young Focus students and staff were also given a privilege to attend the ONE:GLOBAL SUPERHEROES events last Friday night at the Mall of Asia Arena.

"It was such an amazing experience, of course. You really feel for the hardship my countrymen are experiencing now, especially the youth. As a ONE Championship athlete, it is my honor to be able to give back to the Filipino people. I'm sure the entire world would also love to be part of this movement, so I encourage everyone to check out Global Citizen and how each of us can help in our own little ways." Global Citizen Athlete Ambassador Eduard Folayang said. 

Young Focus is a local NGO in the Philippines that provides underprivileged youth in the Tondo or "Smokey Mountain" Area of Manila the chance to develop themselves intelectually, emotionally, physchologically, and spiritually. Through education, Young Focus addresses poverty directly by giving the next generation the best possible opportunities in life.
