Ever wonder how we can help hundreds of thousands of kids every day? The answer: CI community centers. But in Daraga, Philippines, we’re working out of a rented storefront that isn’t even close to adequate for the demand. A whopping 7,000 kids rely on this center as a safe space, a place to learn and a home to vital services.
With your help, we can build a new facility that’s up for the challenges of lifting sponsored kids out of poverty.
Daraga construction nears the halfway point!
The main concrete structure of the community center, including the roof deck, is completed. The center will provide medical and educational services to younger children.
The interior is beginning to take shape with wall construction ongoing.
Here is the back of the community center, including the concrete privacy fence that surrounds the property.
The youth resource center is a separate space from the community center, allowing teens to have their own area to participate in programs and socialize.
The main structure of the youth center is nearly finished. Wall construction on the ground floor has begun.
The concrete beams around the sports court are being constructed. This covered court will keep youth protected during the area's frequent rains.
A new community center in Daraga, Philippines, will replace a rented storefront that is woefully inadequate to care for the 7,000 children it serves.
The new center will feature 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.
