- March 2015 Mission - March 2015 Mission: Legazpi, Philippines Background: Legazpi, Philippines is a small town that radiates with character. Specifically, the sight of children playing basketball on a makeshift court (repurposed tree stumps acting as the pole on which sagging hoops hung) or Tuk-Tuks (moped taxis) and Jeepneys (bus taxis) that were vividly painted in all colors of the spectrum were but a mere sliver of its personality.

Faces of Tomorrow is fortunate to have young people help their counterparts halfway around the world by holding toy drives.
