Childreamers - Tondo, Manila

Providing education and meals to children in Smokey Mountain

In Feb 2014, the Child Dreamers Daycare Center was born out of a vision, a partnership between local Tondo resident Remy and a guest on one of her cultural tours through the Smokey Mountains Two Slum in Tondo. Remy has lived in the area for over 12 years, most of that as a volunteer worker with different agencies attached to youth, women, livelihood and health and is also an early learning educator. 

Childreamers provides a safe place for 45 children ages 3-5 years old to learn, receive a nutritious meal and receive additional support to be ready for Grade 1. Enrolment in Childreamers also ensures the parents are eligible for additional government support.  

ANZA's Partnership with Childreamers

ANZA has partnered with Childreamers for 2022/23. ANZA is focusing on investing in maintenance for the building that Childreamers uses. This involves fixing leaks, updating the kitchen and bathroom area so it is safe for the children to use, preventing flooding and making some necessary structural changes that Remy has needed for a long time. 

ANZA will also be fundraising to sponsor the feeding program and individual children to ensure that they have access to personal hygiene products, one healthy meal a day as well as clothes, toys and shoes. 

Childreamers has graciously offered ANZA a small period on a Tuesday to come to Tondo, meet the children and participate in some of the educational activities that Remy and her team do with the children.
