One of the many things that I love about the Manila Boystown organization is that it's heart is as big as it's land.

When I first entered the institution years ago, the first thing I noticed is that it's boundless. This is because Manila Boystown is 23-hectare orphanage that provides shelter for the abandoned, forgotten and voluntarily surrendered children, teenagers and elderly of Manila. That's a lot of people, especially since Manila is one of the most populated cities in the world and the heart of the Philippines.

What's inspiring is that just one glimpse of the organization at work shows how dedicated the members of the organization are to providing better lives for the less fortunate males in Manila. It doesn't matter how difficult and time consuming the task of catering to the children, teenagers and elderly are, the members do it relentlessly.

Manila Boystown was founded in 1949, which is 64 years of service towards these underprivileged people. That shows a lot of dedication. The organization's mission is, "To Give the Children and the Elderly a Better Hope, Care and Love they deserve" and it is a statement that the members of the organization practice faithfully.

Manila Boystown's is owned by the Manila city government
and it is a non-profit based organization.

thanks to your post, i feel glad that there's such a place because it really gives me a sense of hope. Hope because as we all know these days, places that are being built are mostly condos, houses, malls, and all those other places in which one can earn money by selling it and that's why I found hope in this place because this place didn't build itself to earn money but to help others.
