3 Side Hustle Ways You Can Do To Earn and Save Up for College Tuition

Every parent wants the best for their children, especially when it comes to education. Why? Because of the belief that education is the most powerful investment in our children’s future. It can put them on a path towards good employment or a successful career in their chosen field.

In my country, the Philippines, sending kids to private schools is expensive. I paid monthly tuition of almost three thousand pesos (3,000.00) for my kindergarten. Above two thousand pesos (2,000.00 +) monthly tuition for my Junior High, because he availed the government subsidy amounting to almost eleven thousand pesos covered for one school year. If I’m going to compare this tuition fee to previous years, it increased to 50%.
