The Sisters of Mary opened Talisay Girlstown in 1985 and now they are able to serve 3,300 young girls and give them an opportunity to break free from the cycle of poverty.
The girls study a full academic curriculum alongside arts, sports and technical skills. The girls at our school are safe, well cared for and enjoy their childhood free from the concerns of poverty. They form lifelong friendships and make the most of the learning opportunity by competing in a variety of challenges and competitions both inside and outside of their school group.
Alongside their academic subjects the girls receive technical training in computer system servicing, technical drawing, bread and pastry making, tailoring, dressmaking and bookkeeping. The girls enjoy a period of on the job training with local employers to prepare for work. All this gives them the best chance of employment when they finish school.
This is only possible through the generosity of people like you. Every child deserves a good start in life and with your help we can continue to make this a reality.
