The visitor to Metro Manila commonly sees the Philippines as the most westernized of Asian countries and in many ways, it is. But there is also a rich underlay of Malay culture beneath the patina of Spanish and American heritage.
National cultural life is a happy marriage of many influences, as the indigenous Malay culture is assimilated and adapted to different strains in a practice typical of Malay temperament. An upsurge of Philippine nationalism stimulated a desire to preserve the ancient heritage without restricting its openness to foreign artistic influence.
The Philippines is an archipelago of 7,107 islands. It stretches from the south of China to the northern tip of Borneo. The country has over a hundred ethnic groups and a mixture of foreign influences which have molded a unique Filipino culture.
Before the Spanish explorers came, Indo-Malays and Chinese merchants had settled here. In 1521, the Spaniards, led by Ferdinand Magellan, discovered the islands. The Spanish conquistadores established a colonial government in Cebu in 1565. They transferred the seat of government to Manila in 1571 and proceeded to colonize the country. The Filipinos resisted and waged Asia’s first nationalist revolution in 1896. On June 12, 1898, Emilio Aguinaldo declared the Philippines independent from Spain and proclaimed himself president.
After ruling for 333 years, the Spaniards finally left in 1898 and were replaced by the Americans who stayed for 48 years. On July 4, 1946, the Americans recognized Philippine independence.
The Philippines is the third largest English-speaking country in the world. The country is divided into three geographical areas: Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao. It has 17 regions, 81 provinces, 136 cities, 1,494 municipalities, and 41,995 barangays. (Barangay – The smallest political unit into which cities and municipalities in the Philippines are divided.
It is the basic unit of the Philippine political system. It consists of less than 1,000 inhabitants residing within the territorial limit of a city or municipality and administered by a set of elective officials, headed by a barangay chairman or punong barangay)

Most Dangerous Ways To School – Philippines.
The children from Madibago in the southern Philippines have one of the most spectacular and dangerous ways to school in the world. Some walk alone through the jungle for hours, others risk their lives, in order to make it past a steep face of rock and boulders, overgrown with moss and tree roots.
On the peninsula Zamboanga del Norte in the southern Philippines, the thinly populated coastal strip gives way to sharply rising mountains. Eleven-year-old Aible lives close to the sea, but her school is located in the heart of the mountains. A ride on a motorbike taxi costs only one US-Dollar, but Aible’s family simply doesn’t have the money, like most of the families here. So for decades, children from Madibago have been taking the shortcut through the jungle. They call it Pam-Pang: A gigantic wall that the children must climb every single day – in the hopes of a better future. In some places its slope is 90 degrees. Many people have fallen here. Some have critically injured themselves while trying to climb Pam-Pang.
The weather can change suddenly in the Philippines. Thanks to the high humidity, short, heavy rain showers tend to be the rule – even in the dry season. And for Aible this means even greater danger on her way to and from school. The roots, the rocks, the soil – all becomes even more slippery than usual. But that doesn’t keep the children from chasing their dreams.

It’s been said many times that the best ticket out of poverty is to get an education. And for the young characters in our first story, that’s just the case. These are Filipino children who go to great lengths, literally, to get to school, sometimes without breakfast or lunch. It’s heartbreaking， but at the same time it gives you hope – that their future might be brighter than the struggles they endure today.
Our next story is about an experiment in China that is just breaking ground. We travel to Shanghai where we learn how a few schools are helping boys develop more ‘male-oriented’ roles as they make their way into adulthood. In a society where the mother has more influence over a child’s education, some experts say Chinese boys aren’t growing into the men of generations past. As a result, there is a growing demand by parents for the schools to step in, and one mother says she already sees a difference in her young son as a result of this program.
Finally, if ever there were an example of how an education can help a person out of poverty, it’s with our next story. Anil hit a stroke of luck (pun intended) when he beat a top amateur in golf, an experience that paid off and gave him a reprieve from the daily life in the slums of Mumbai. Now he’s trying to pay it forward by helping others learn to play golf so that they too have a chance at a better life.
We hope you enjoy the show!

To children living in Latag, Nasugbu, Batangas, going to school means facing risks daily.
They begin their three-hour trek to school at 3 AM. They cross rivers and ravines barefoot, as the mud can sometimes be too deep.
Elsa is in grade 10. She and her sister, who is in fifth grade, join 100 other students who walk to school every day. During rainy seasons, the children have to cross a bridge that is close to collapsing. They keep their school uniforms in their backpacks and find ways to change into them when they near their school.
In this report, Investigative Documentaries finds out why going to school has become a life-threatening activity in this small community, and why the local government has not provided them a safer option to get to school.

“Bayanihan” is a Filipino word that refers to an outpouring of community spirit, with a group of people working together for the common good. This is an inspiring story of how bayanihan fuels a young boy’s dream to fly.
In a remote village in the island of Panay in the Philippines, a young boy named Arcel has learned to juggle work and school to help feed his family. He earns a living from selling abaca, a fiber used in producing banknotes, which he sells for barely a dollar per kilo. Despite the odds, Arcel dreams of becoming a pilot.
Every day, Arcel takes the precious steps towards realizing his dream by crossing a wobbly bridge made of vines from the forest. It’s dangerous, but it’s the only way for him to get across the river that separates his home from his school. Since Arcel’s only pair of slippers fell into the river, he’s had to walk barefoot all the way to school, and up the mountain where he cuts down abaca plants.
The future and dreams of this little village’s children rest on this bridge. But now that it has begun to deteriorate, will Arcel’s dream continue to fly high? Until when can the forest provide?
LOSING A SLIPPER CROSSING THE BRIDGE

Our mission is to build mini recycling pods on the streets and have them run by homeless people. Solving two problems at once. This will then allow for garbage waste to be sorted at first contact, rather than at the garbage dump. It will also provide temporary shelter for the homeless operators.
