"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."
Children from the poorest communities in the Philippines have one ticket out of poverty: their education. However, this one ticket is often out of their reach.
For elementary and high school students enrolled in public schools, that ticket would cost P800 or around $20. This is the cost of their enrollment and school supplies. Many families with several children are not able to afford this amount for their children.
For college students enrolled in various universities, that ticket would cost as little as P4000 or $90 per semester. This is already a huge amount for many Filipino families that earn P50 or $1 a day.
No wonder many Filipinos still continue to be entrapped in poverty.
Our mission is to change this. Our mission is to give that ticket to young Filipinos in the direst situations who are willing to persevere to complete their education.
Help us fulfill this mission by sharing our call for donations for our ongoing scholarship program.
