How can you help?

 

You may help in our quarterly outreach projects in remote communities.   

You may donate any amount of cash or in kind.

 

You can send us: - school supplies, - slippers, - clothes, - books, - food supplies, - noodles, - rice, - personal hygiene products, etc. These are the kind of things we bring to our quarterly outreach projects.

 

You may volunteer in repacking the goods.

We usually have our repacking one week before the scheduled outreach date. Details are posted on Facebook, Twitter and this website. 

 

You may volunteer in the actual outreach and participate in gift-giving or distribution of goods. 

This is an out of town trip — could be a day trip or an overnight trip depending on location.

 

Details such as schedule and expenses are usually posted on Facebook, Twitter and this website.

Our strategy is simple

There is a misconception that money alone can solve poverty. It is very easy to give out money to the poor. But change can never be truly achieved with dole-outs. “Magkaiba ang “pagpapa-asa” at “pagbibigay ng pag-asa.” (To give charity is not the same as to give hope.)

 

We do not want to create parasites out of children. We want to help them help themselves.

 

This is the reason we set limits on funds sent to our children. We give just enough to pay for their tuition, transportation expenses, food allowance and books. We choose to give monthly allowances versus yearly so as not to tempt them to use the funds for non essential purchases.

 

Instead of giving funds to the scholar’s family, we course the donation through the school principal or an advisor/counselor. The children must perform in order for them to continue receiving our support.

 

Bottom-line: our strategy works. We not only give our children the education they need to lead productive lives; we also give them something more valuable – self worth.
