Memory ～ A memory filled with love and golden hearts forming one organization.
My life is pretty simple and plain and I know nothing to less about life but not after I became an Enchild beneficiary. The first time my mom told me about this organization, the only thing I expected was to receive financial support and nothing more than it but as time passed by, I started to see that NPO Enchild’s goal is more than what I had imagined. Aside from the Christmas celebration, we gather every year to meet each other. We sing, dance, play, have fun, and most importantly inspire, love, and help each other. According to Mr. Takanori Todate, “Beyond give and receive is transforming it to give and give." After hearing his words, I started to recall all the time I have spent with this organization, and to tell you precisely, the memory is abundant with selfless love, care, kindness, and inspirations that can lift everyone in times of down.
Every day, I thank everyone who is part of this organization because they have made a huge impact on my life. My plain life slowly turned into a perfect definition of a rainbow and dreams are gradually evolving into a reality. A human brain has only a memory capacity of 2.5 million gigabytes for its entire life and I am proud to willingly spend more than half of my memory capacity with the Enchild family, all because they are worth more than a diamond.
I was honored and blessed to be part of this kind of family. They give us not only financially but also unconditional love and undying support for our studies. They taught us how to give love even though we’re not blood-related also they taught us how to be a better version of ourselves. Almost 9 nine years of being a beneficiary and model to the other youth nowadays. I realized that in those past 9 years their love was never fade. Until now I'm 22 years old I can feel their love even though they’re in Japan and we're here in the Philippines, they give us time to talk to and have time to gather even if it is in the virtual. They race us like their own children and their best friend at the same time.
My most memorable moments in ENCHILD are those times when I saw the smile on their faces. How happy they are to see us. It is very heart whelming. They flew here in the Philippines just to see their beautiful and handsome beneficiaries.
ENCHILD taught me to be selfless and put others first. This is a very big help as I continue to grow as a person. Because the more we get old, the more challenges and responsibilities we must face. And it was never easy for me to be where I am now. I fought hard tried my best to be here. I know there are still many things to learn and experience that will make me a better person. But I also know that through the struggles that I've encountered I can say that I am ready to face the test and challenges of my life.
Now that I'm already in my 3rd year as an education student. I want to strive hard not just for myself or for my family to which I dedicate all my hardships. But as an educator, I want to share my knowledge with the children, to the people. In that way, I can also help to make their dreams into reality. I want to be an inspiration to people that financial difficulty is not a hindrance if you're willing to achieve your goals.
And no matter how life hard is, there will always be people with good hearts that will help you. Like the ENCHILD organization. I wanted to thank all the people behind ENCHILD organization. I have huge respect for all of you. I promise that a dreamer like me will meet her dream someday. Thank you.
One of the most unexpected blessings I received from God was becoming a beneficiary of the NPO Enchild. No words can express how grateful I am to God because, to be honest, my family is struggling financially, and being a beneficiary of the NPO Enchild has helped my family, particularly me. It felt great to be a part of this family.
The family that never stops supporting you in many ways. I recall meeting my sponsors and the people behind the organization for the first time in Masao. If I'm not mistaken, it was the year 2013. Every year, our organization conducted an event to celebrate our anniversary. But one of the most memorable moments and experiences I had with my Enchild family occurred during our Enchild Study Tour 2019 celebration in Magallanes.
We took a boat to Magallanes, and while we were on it, we were singing, admiring the view of the river, and laughing at each other.
That moment was really different. We were just having a good time singing and having a good time. Sir Johnnie was playing the guitar. When we arrived at our destination, the program began. I forgot the name of the specific location in Magallanes, but there was a monument near the beach.
I am not mistaken before we went home, we visited the place where the water is producing a fire. We enjoyed that moment so much because we were so amazed. It made me cry every time I remembered it. Why? Because I missed that experience. Sad to say, because of the pandemic, we can't meet each other. But despite that, our sponsors did not stop helping us.
They were always supporting us financially and giving us the love that we really need. I know they are also struggling but, look at them.
They never stop supporting us. That is also of the experiences I had with my Enchild family. I knew I said this many times but, thank you so much Enchild family. Without your support, I think I will not be able to go to college to pursue my dreams. Thank you for your endless love for us. I am so excited to meet you again soon.
Good times shape our personalities because they retain all of our stories and insight. Beloved memories are an important part of our lives. The pleasant, lovely, finest, excellent, and astonishing memories of youth are difficult to forget. Youth is, without a doubt, the most amazing portion of anyone's life.
Way back in 2019, I had an amazing memory with my Enchild family. We spent two days sharing memories together in Los Angeles and Magallanes town. I had so many smiles and laughter as seen in the picture because it is the first time that we made a playful activity that promotes camaraderie and unity. Also, that was the time that I got the chance to talk with other beneficiaries because we were being subdivided into subgroups. We made chants, we sang with our hearts out, we took pictures and parlor games. We may have different languages spoken but our heart is one and that’s what I like about Enchild, love beyond borders.

When I became a member of the enchild family, I was overjoyed since I had made new friends whom I treated like family. When our sponsors traveled all the way from Japan to visit our primary school, it was a remarkable experience for me as a child. It was a fantastic event for a kid like me since, if my memory serves me correctly, it was my first encounter with a Japanese. Those energizing talks, meeting the sponsors, and the exuberant Japanese welcome will go down in my memory as one of the most unforgettable experiences of my life. " We didn't realize we were making memories. We just knew we were having fun."
The Philippines has a fairly high poverty rate with more than 16% of the population living below in the poverty line. Because of the many people reliant on agriculture for an income and inequality in wealth distribution, about 17.6 million Filipinos struggle to afford basic necessities.
Me and My family belong in the poverty line. I Remember those days that money was so very hard to find, my parents always talked about how to save money and how to use it properly.
I feel blessed when enchild come in our life and to my co scholars, I was grade 3 students when enchild take me as a part of scholars and until now that I ' am 3rd year college I'm still part of this and thankful and also very grateful to them they help us through thick and thin which is pandemic there still helping in the midst of crisis.
