Poverty in the Philippines

Children growing up in poverty in the Philippines face many difficulties including chronic malnutrition and underdevelopment, high teen-pregnancy rates and drugs, crime and unemployment.

That is why we focus on providing early childhood screening and nutrition, health and educational programs, as well as proven empowerment programs with valuable life-skills training.

See how our program works and why we focus on health, education, empowerment and employment.
