This service program will take the youth around Manila and several provinces as an exposure to third world poverty plight and help build relationships between them and their hosts from various ANCOP villages in Manila, Tarlac and Bulacan.  As every TCDSB service program in the Philippines, the delegation will be doing a gift-giving, feeding program, and ending with building homes for the less fortunate.
