Growth 2008 – 2018
Our native team on the island of Cebu have been making a difference in the lives of those affected by extreme poverty for over 10 years. Our work of reaching destitute children and at-risk women in the Philippines is being sustained and multiplied by a hen house project producing up to 300 eggs per day, a banana grove that yields over 6,000 bananas annually, and a fishery that provides up to a ton of fish several times per year. Our farmland enterprise also includes a coconut grove with 115 trees, a free-range poultry farming project, a goat farm, and a piggery.
Profits generated from their farmland enterprise, combined with your donations, allow us to operate a girls home and two “Children’s Hope Centers” which are afterschool care programs striving to ensure that children stay successfully enrolled in school. One is in Manila, the other on our main campus on the island of Cebu. On any given Saturday, you will find our team conducting children’s outreaches in the villages, providing fresh-cooked meals, dental hygiene training, and Vacation Bible School type games and activities. We support a program designed to equip at-risk women to avoid the perils of human trafficking by fostering their creative skills in craft-making small businesses. Some of their creations can be found at SheHasHope.org.
