The photo shows how creative and lively our Mangyan kids are. It was taken at Occidental Mindoro, Philippines. They just created a basketball ring out of recycled woods and hang it on a tree. You can also see them wearing "tsinelas" or slippers and sometimes they play barefooted without worrying what might stuck on their feet. It also shows the simplicity of life of our Mangyans and how they really appreciate how wonderful their life even without luxuries and other material things. Basketball is really in the heart of every Filipinos even the indigenous people. I remember how happy they are when we bought them ball as they wish to have it ever since. You can see the true happiness and contentment on their faces when we finally give it to them. I think basketball is not just a game of sports but rather a game of life. It nourishes our minds and feed our souls to have strength, courage and determination.
