Our two native teams in The Philippines are located in Manila and on the island of Cebu.

For over 10 years, our native team on the island of Cebu have been working to make a lasting change in the lives of those affected by extreme poverty. Our work of reaching orphans and at-risk children suffering from the effects of extreme poverty is being sustained and multiplied by a widely diverse farmland enterprise. The farm produces several tons of produce annually. In its lifetime it has produced over half a million eggs, over 17 tons of coconuts, and a steady flow of fish, bananas, vegetables, along with profits from a goat and pork stockbreeding enterprise.

Profits generated from the farmland, combined with your donations, allow us to operate a girls home and two “Children’s Hope Centers.” The “Hope Centers” are after-school care programs striving to ensure that children stay successfully enrolled in school, offering free tutoring, fresh meals, and school supplies. One is in Manila, the other on our main campus on the island of Cebu.

Our Cebu team also operates a program that is equipping at-risk women and their daughters 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. Sadly, the island of Cebu is a major trafficking hub in Asia. With your help, we are able to spare women and girls from being susceptible to traffickers on the island who lure impoverished women with false promises of good jobs abroad only to become slaves once they leave the country.
