Our Work

We work primarily with faith-based partners to help severely impoverished Filipinos break out of the log-term bondage of poverty, both physical and spiritual.

About 35% of the Filipinos live in poverty; 16 percent of Filipinos live in the worst category of poverty in the world. Most of these extremely poor families live in rural areas, many of them lacking access to adequate housing, clean water and often do not avail of educational opportunities beyond the elementary level. It is among this category of Filipinos that we work, and mainly with children. We partner with established ministries, national pastors and missionaries and others working in these areas rather than duplicating services. We have found many dedicated workers here who lack the basic resources to provide the desired level of services. By working together, we are able to help more of the impoverished people so that healing of their broken relationships with God, self, community and creation can occur.
