Organization Spotlight: Tapori--Overcoming Poverty by Building Friendships among All Children
Skelton, Diana; Orcullo, Marjorie
Childhood Education, v92 n1 p70-74 2016
Around the world, children who grow up in poverty and children who grow up in middle-class homes rarely have opportunities to get to know one another. Tapori is a friendship network that seeks to make connections between disparate groups of children possible. Its newsletter shares true stories from the point of view of children living in challenging circumstances, such as on the street, or in an emergency housing shelter. This article features the Tapori story, "Awesome!" written by Marie Ricana and based on notes by Guy Malfait. The story comes from a community of informal homes on the underside of a bridge in the Philippines.
