Charity sponsoring Filipino children's education
Charity Success Story - Grapevine Outreach
Jamaica Jumagdao - Manila, The Philippines
My name is Jamaica Jumagdao and thanks to my sponsors in the UK, Uncle Ted and Auntie Gillian, I was able to be a Grapevine Outreach student as my father did not earn enough to support me, my 3 brothers and my mother.
As a student I was trained to be a better person not just with words but in actions. my self-esteem was increased and I was encouraged to do more
I was a Grapevine Outreach student until I graduated from university in 2014 with a BA in Human Resource Developent Management.
Today I work for a large distribution company in the Philippines as a Human Resources Associate. I help with recruitment and training and I can now fight for employees’ right and their grievances. I am proud to be one of the essential parts of the organization I am with.
The Grapevine Outreach programme is for students who remain living with family, but without help could end up working on the dump at Payatas.
