Help us Save the Tenement, and its residents.  On October 1, 2014, some 1000 families living in Tenement Taguig faced eviction. They were given a 30 day notice to move out.  During the time, in order to help the residents forget their problems, I organized an event called Picnic Games.  This event brought so much good energy that it helped bridge the people through their tough times, And ever since this event we had miracles happening through out. From having vistors from the NBA such as Lebron James, Paul George, Jordan Clarkson .   The beautiful murals, and all the artwork we had created here, had become such an attraction that it made the Tenement basketball Court to be considered as one of the Top 5 most beautiful basketball courts in the world. Three years later, here we are about to launch our 7th Picnic Games with the same resillience as we had since the first one.  No matter where the judicial court system send our fate, we can respect it.  However, we will continue to better the living environment at the Tenement despite the disregards from our government in ways we can make possible.  And the programs that we are needing to get assistance for such as the requests we made on the video attached are these:
-3-4 Hired residents to be janitors/custodians that will keep our basketball court clean/welcoming/functional. (Since we had become an international basketball tourist spot we are so much in need of cleaning equipment, and commited workers)
- a Full court set up in the back for rainy days, and for residents to have a place to play when visitors and events are happening at center court.
- rent money for the room we had been occupying ever since 2014 (This had been so heavy on the pockets for someone like me ever since, and we can not afford to lose it)
- Paint, Leaks on roofing,  clogged sewage, cement for cracks.
- On August 27 is the Finals for our resident league that we independently funded through our hardest struggles.  As of now we are at the elimination rounds, prolonging and stretching due to lack of funds. (We owe it to kids/boys of our league to give them a worthy Finals and award ceremony in the form of Picnic games 7) Trophies, Medals, Certificates, Referee Fees are much needed for this day. 
***Rent, Full Court set up, small construction,  trophies, uniforms, custodians/janitor job are amongst the top priorities we need help in continuing our fight to be relevant and regarded.  We pray that your kind heart will help us find a way to fulfill these goals.  thank you so much for your time and consideration.
