LAA TONDO- Anariza Cajodo, Nursery Leader
I am Anariza Cajodo, I am 30 years old and I live in Tondo, Manila. I am a former Youth of LP4Y. I was part of the team Aurora, who made hand-stitched mice and wallets in the Life Project Center in Tondo. I have been working as the nursery coordinator of all Little Angels Academy in the Philippines for five years now. As a LAA coordinator I manage the organisation, finance and pedagogy.
The Little Angels Academy is very important for children and mothers, as we guide them, take care of the children and provide them with pedagogical activities such as educational activities, cooking and music, gardening and sports.
Usually, we organize an excursion for all children every two months. Yet, because of the pandemic we postponed it . Children follow a healthy diet, and we teach the children how to be independent. We also still provide mothers with diapers, so they can maintain a good quality of hygiene for their children and save more money.
As a young mother I know that it's hard to find a job if you know that no one will take care of your children. That is why I want to be a bridge for my co Youth in LP4Y to get their dreams and we are very thankful that LP4Y have a Little Angels Academy to support the mothers and children achieve their dreams!
