Boystown Philippines
Dobrick is a student at our Philippines Boystown. He is the fourth child of seven from a very poor family. His mother is a laundry woman, and his father a construction worker. Due to the accessibility of his work, often times his father would only be able to come home once a month. Before encountering the Sisters, Dobrick would need to help his mother wash costumers’ clothing in order to assist in his family’s financial responsibilities. He would even work carrying sandbags at construction sites to help provide.Now, Dobrick can study knowing that his new education will allow him to provide a hopeful future for him and his family.

He wants to become a teacher when he grows up in order to help young children, like himself, have better opportunities.
