Quotes from pFactory After-school '04/05 in Harlem:
“People think just because we're in the projects, we donít have to look nice... just because we are in the projects, it does not make us go lower it can actually make us go higher because we know what we have and we appreciate it. And we try to also make it better.”
Student P.S. 125
“Iím thankful for having a great time making boxes and this is a great opportunity to help people when theyíre poor. I hope everybody donates their stuff, their clothes, their cans of food.”

“Weíre caring about the poor and we can help them and that all contributes to what weíre doing and thatís what they need- like care, love- respect."

Student P.S. 125
