Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The GoAbroad Foundation was created to support grassroots organizations around the world by generating financial support for community-based projects. We saw a need to assist international non-profits in getting the funding they need to support their important programs in their local community. We aim to support organizations that help improve communities, educate those without access to education, spread social justice, and promote equality.

Our Weekend Feeding Program provides hot, nutritious meals and snacks for 75-100 kids each weekend.

The Rice Subsidy program provides monthly rice allotments to low-income families in a rural village of the Philippines. Rice is a staple food and necessity for daily survival for the families and their children. Additionally, we donate a portion of our rice subsidies to the community center to help provide rice for weekday feedings for youth.
