An Urgent Appeal: Would you want to help build a better future for a child?

Thank you for your support to our  #BeAChildsBetterFutureBuilder Program.  With your help, we are able to help send children, from families with a monthly income of less than Php5,000 (USD100), to school by covering the costs of school transport and other expenses.

In the two barangays (local areas) that we are currently supporting, there are more than 100 children needing help to go to school. These children include working children, child laborers and those that have been abused. From those 100 children, we have identified 23 that need the most urgent immediate help to prevent them from dropping out of school. These are listed in the two tables below.

 

Note: Until we get all these children’s school costs covered, they are at a risk of dropping school. Only with an urgent support can these children remain in school.
