#LihamKayDigong: A call to help young workers

CNN Philippines is running a wonderful project aimed at improving the lives of people in the Philippines. They are encouraging people to write a letter to President-elect Rodrigo Duterte with their hopes and dreams for the future administration and for the programs they wish to see happen in order to restore dignity within the lives of the people and community.

#LiamKayDigong chronicles various people of varying backgrounds; from students to janitors to inmates. You can read all of their letters here.

She’s a young child who helps her family earn a living by selling kopra. In her letter to President-elect Rodrigo Duterte, she writes about her hopes to finish school so that she may be able to help her family. She says she hopes the new administration will be able to help children like her.

If you had a chance to write to Duterte, what would you say and what would you hope for?

Send your letters to feedback@cnnphilippines.com or post it on social media using #LihamKayDigong.
