About the Philippines

Kids growing up in poverty in the Philippines face many difficulties, including a tough time finding employment due to lack of ability to get basic skills, high teen pregnancy rates and chronic malnutrition impacting their development.

That's why we focus on offering a variety of proven employment programs and valuable in-demand job skills training, as well as youth health programs to teach kids about smart choices, and early childhood screening and nutrition programs to help kids grow up strong and healthy.

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