Project Description: "We are all born in this world where limited education in a reality. Not all are given the privileged to be educated. Only those who are wealthy, those who have money, and those who are supported by their families are able to go to school. Every person has the right for good and proper education. By the time we are already conceive in our mother’s womb, we already have a life, thus also possessing the right to study.

Nowadays, many people do not experience having good education. This is due to many unavoidable circumstances and reasons like poverty, teenage pregnancy, family problems, etc. Children with poor families are forced to go to work at a very young age. These children do not have the chance to study because they do not have the finances to pay for their education.

As youths in community, we should be aware in social issues like these. Being students in a Catholic institution, we should be conscious that many children suffer from limited education or no education at all, and thus, they grow up uneducated and do not have permanent jobs that can support themselves, their families, and their lives. By giving us the opportunity to create a website, we are enabling people to have a broader understanding in this social issue. Our group chose to make a website focusing on out of school youth. Our aim is to raise awareness about the importance of education and diplomacy not only in the Philippines but also in other parts of the world. We envision a society wherein everyone in given a right to study; a society where everyone is given the chance to fulfill their dreams.

By our possessed knowledge, we want to preserve the fact that everyone, every person and every child has the right to education no matter what their status in life may be. "
