Story

Zhaijan is from a tribe in the Philippines with a reputation as professional beggars. The children do not attend school but instead are organized to beg in front of shopping malls, bus terminals and busy streets.

But Zhaijan is sponsored through Compassion—he’s going to school and has received books to help him learn. His mom hopes he can be one of the first of his people to finish his education and have a future beyond begging.
