Fairplay For All FoundationEmail: [email protected] Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/fairplayforallfoundation/ Located in a small two-storey house on Bicol Road, Payatas, The Fairplay For All Foundation started out as a free football clinic and grew into a drop-in center where kids from the community go to learn, play, and just be children. At the center, the children are given the freedom to choose their activities and voice out what it is they really want to study. In turn, Fairplay For All creates these opportunities to learn — mainly through volunteers. They are always looking for people who can teach not only subjects you’ll find in school but extra-curricular things like dance and even yoga. Get in touch with them at [email protected] and find out how you can contribute to their cause. Gadgets Magazine)">
Work doesn't have to come in the way of lending a hand. If you volunteer regularly and you know more places to volunteer at, share the love and let us know.
