Send a Child in Manila to School for a Year


Send a Child in Manila to School for a Year Summary Pag-asa ng Pamilya Foundation provides children from disadvantaged, low-income families with access to quality education. Children are enabled to join mainstream schools, and given the chance to become confident,highly-skilled independent learners,who are responsible citizens. Challenge Access to quality education by disadvantaged, low-income families in Manila is limited (a) because it is often unavailable, (b) because of domestic and economic pressures forcing children to work, and (c) because it has traditionally not been accorded value. Nearly half of children from these low-income families are out of school, and only 10% actually go on to finish tertiary education levels. Solution Pag-asa ng Pamilya Foundation aims to raise funds to support children from disadvantaged, low-income families from 897 barangays in Manila for their primary, secondary, and tertiary level education. The foundation operates by pre-determining children most in need of quality education. It equips the children to enable them to reach their dreams, and change their lives. Long-Term Impact Enabling children from disadvantaged, low-income communities to have access to quality education; enabling disadvantaged, low-income communities to experience the benefits of quality education; empowering communities to demand quality education from the government.
