Save the Children has been making tremendous efforts in providing clothing, shelter kits, newborn kits, setting up mobile clinics and much more. Save the Children has also received a 4 star rating from CharityNavigator.org with high marks in operations of their finance as well as accountability and transparency.

I am a 13 year old who’s half filipino trying to learn Tagalog, and balancing school, extra curricular activities, social life, etc. is very difficult, and learning a new language made it even harder. With this app however, it’s very easy to use and it’s not something I have to constantly study like I had to with other apps. It’s kind of like Rosetta Stone/ Duolingo… it’s super fun too! Highly recommended no matter what age 🙂cheerdancevolleyash
