Programs and results

What we aim to solve

The Philippines has an orphan population of almost 2,000,000 children, according to UNICEF. We are working to provide the basics of life to them including housing, food, clothing and education.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Orphanage Facility

We are currently seeking support to construct our third orphanage facility to be able to take in 15-20 orphans.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

We know it takes roughly $250/child to provide their care, clothing, food and education.  Our goal is to support between 12-15 children at each location. Our projected annual need for support (on the high side) is $50,000.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

We are sponsoring several children (currently 35) in the Bombongan, Morong area, helping them stay in school and finish their studies. There are many we are helping who previously had to drop out due to lack of resources. With continued support, we seek to help more and more children stay in school!

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our organization is aiming to build and operate additional orphanages throughout the Philippine Islands. Our first and second facilities are finished and we have identified a third location and are making arrangements to begin construction.

We hope to put a dent in the economic poverty of the communities in which we work and make a huge difference in the lives of the children that live in those communities.

Our strategies for fundraising are two-fold. We are seeking monthly sponsors to partner with us in feeding and caring for the orphans we take in. The other aspect of our strategy is to solicit larger capital donations that will go toward our next orphanage project. When we search for the location of our next project, we will only target areas of the Philippines where we have personal trusted contacts.

We also are working on optimizing our social media accounts hoping to effectively solicit donations that go toward our mission.

Our donor base and donations have grown consistently since we formed in 2010. Every year we have seen growth in our donation intake. Our capacity to continue this progress is tremendous since we have a strong Board of Directors who are in agreement about our passion to serve Filipino orphans.

We currently have over 5100 followers on Facebook. Digital marketing through these media outlets is a focus in 2022(f).

We successfully built our first orphanage in Manaoag, Pangasinan which is now licensed and certified. In addition, prior to the facility even being built, we took in our first orphan. Since completion of the orphanage, we have taken in 7 more children, giving us a total of 8 at the moment and they are all doing very well! Since the DSWD is the gatekeeper for us, we are awaiting them to bring more orphans.

Also, we completed construction of a school in Manaoag, right next to the orphanage. The kids in the orphanage and a few select kids from the church will attend school there.

We recently completed our second orphanage in Mexico, Pampanga. We actually built onto an existing orphanage - our building expands their capacity to take in more children. There are currently 62 orphans in this facility.

Lastly, we've identified a church partner in Cainta, Rizal to begin construction of our third orphanage.
