Star of Hope inaugurated its sheltered accommodation for vulnerable girls in the Philippines one year ago; it is the "Stars Dorm" located in Taytay Rizal, just a few miles outside Manila in the Philippines.
Maria Presson COO for Star of Hope (left) was on location in Manila when we opened the center, she says "Stars Dorm is right next door to our flagship school in Taytay and is needed as too many girls in the Philippines are sexually exploited and various types of terrible abuse are common in the slum areas, this includes Taytay where we have our school and this project. Unfortunately and sickening, the abusers are at times from the same family, or near to the family. Unbelievable but true. Now we need monthly support to run the unit.

There is hope, we will help those we can. Through generous donations from the near and far we will become 100% operational, a blessing for the girls.
