Symone lives in a garbage dumpsite in Payatas and ate “pagpag”. He now holds a BS Computer Science degree!
Symone lives in a garbage dumpsite in Payatas. His parents are scavengers. Symone and his siblings used to eat “pagpag” or leftover food from the garbage that has been reheated twice.
Symone was enrolled in a Computer Science vocational course but he persevered. Last April 2013, he graduated not from a vocational course but with a BS Computer Science degree!
Symone’s dream to finish college came true and he now aspires to take his family out of the garbage dump that they live in. He has better chances now to fulfill his dreams. Thank you for all the donors!
