“Here's my Catriona story. I met Catriona, about 2 years ago at the Young Focus student center in Tondo Manila. Young Focus does a lot of work with the communities that live in and around the Smokey Mountain landfill. What was also striking about Cat's time with Young Focus was that it was clear she knew everyone. She knew the kids, their names, the dreams, she also had a special relationship with the staff of Young Focus. You see, staff members, the teachers and social workers who work so hard and give of themselves are often overlooked, Cat knew them and hung out with them, she saw them. Just recently, we figured the problem of smokey mountain is that people think is that it belongs in the past, and we wanted to call attention to it. Immediately Cat volunteered, she had a platform, and influence and spared no time using it for good. This long post, is to convey first hand that her heart has always been to help. For us at Young Focus, together with the staff and kids, this something we have always known. Now, for those who may have jumped the gun, who may have not understood "the beauty in poverty" idea from the final question. From what I've seen, and from the friends I've made who have devoted their lives in working to help the poor, they would say, Absolutely 100% there is no beauty in poverty. As a matter of fact, when you do visit, you see the evil underbelly of the system the deliberately keeps things unequal. So the beauty Cat speaks of, isn't from general point of view that romanticises poverty. The beauty she speaks of is comes from what she has discovered in the stories of the kids, the families, and the people who have devoted their lives in serving others. They come from knowing actual names, hearing actual dreams. And her response has always been to cheer people on, and when she could, she lent lent her resources. She gave a voice to those we have long forgotten. We are so proud of her and the works she's done." - Bebo Bharwani (Board Member, Young Focus Philippines) Video by @altaniameen Footage from #WereInThisTogether music video, link in bio @youngfocusph
