Plan Philippines - click on this link to find out all about the work of Plan Philippines and the impact that they have upon the lives of the children they work with. Old Town are very proud to have supported a pupil right through to graduation in 2023.

In September 2013 the school was introduced to a new sponsor child, her name is Merian Dacallos.
Merian is now 17 years old and lives in the area known as Samar West. She lives with her mother, father, 5 brothers and 4 sisters. Their house is made of cane with a thatched roof and a palm floor. The family uses a wood fire to cook on. They collect their water from a public standpipe which is a 5 minute walk from the house. The family uses a flushing toilet.
Merian attends secondary school which is less than 30 minutes away from their home and her favourite subject is Science.
