Daraga - Philippines

currently in progress: a new community center in the Philippines

NOW OPEN: Please enjoy this video of the new center!




The Laufer Family Youth Resource and Community Center was inaugurated on February 22, 2018!

The community center provides health and educational resources for younger kids, while the youth resource center provides leadership training, job skills and other programs designed specifically for teens.

There are still opportunities for you to get involved and make a meaningful impact on kids’ lives.

About the center

Our community campus in Daraga, Philippines, replaced a rented storefront that was woefully inadequate to care for the 7,000 children it served.

The new center features separate health and dental clinics, a library, computer center, playground and dedicated spaces for meetings and program activities — where children can learn, play and receive crucial benefits.

Large gifts and naming opportunities

Contributors who donate $1,000 or more join an exclusive group that comes with significant perks:

  • Updates on how the project is progressing and when it will be inaugurated
  • An invitation to attend the inauguration ceremony or visit the center anytime
  • Your name, or the name of someone important to you, inscribed on a plaque in the center

Another far-reaching opportunity: The chance to leave a lasting impression on the Daraga Community Center by naming one of the rooms in the facility.
