Barangay Happyland, Tondo, Metro Manila, Philippines

Squatter's housing in Tondo is one of the poorest and most congested slums in Metro Manila. According to the CIA World and the UNICEF Report on children poverty in the Philippines, the country has the highest fertility rate in East Asia. More than 40% of the population is under 18 years old. On average women have 2-3 children more than they were initially planning for. In informal settlements or urban slums children are particularly vulnerable due to the living conditions, lack of sanitation and high crime rates.
