Public schools in the Philippines are free but charge a multitude of special fees which, together with the cost of a uniform and school supplies, put the cost of education well beyond what the poorest families can pay.
His Hands for the Philippines - Luzon has established a sponsorship program through which you can sponsor a child in the Philippines to help them attend school. $10.00 per month will pay for one of these beautiful children to attend school. $10.00 per month will provide them with a uniform, all their school supplies, all the special school fees and will enroll them and their family in regular rice distributions.
Sponsors receive a photo and personal information about the child they are helping including information about how to correspond with their child, if they choose to do so. Sponsors can choose the age and/or gender of the child they would like to sponsor and may continue to sponsor the same child from year to year, as long as the child remains in the program. 100% of the sponsorship payment goes directly to the Philippines. None of it is used to cover the administrative expenses of this program here in the US.
Children enrolled in the His Hands for the Philippines - Cebu program may be sponsored for $50.00 per month. Two sponsors are necessary to sponsor one child for a month. This sponsorship amount reflects the cost of the intensive care the children in this residential program are receiving. And, as always, 100% of the sponsorship payment goes directly to the Philippines. None of it is used to cover the administrative expenses of this program here in the US. To learn more about this Cebu program, please visit our C.U.R.E. Foundation page.
Sponsoring a child in the Philippines is truly a blessing not only to the child, but to the sponsor as well. The opportunity exists for sponsors to join one of our mission teams traveling to the Philippines and experience the joy of meeting their sponsored child! If you would like information about how you can sponsor a Filipino child, please contact us. If you would like to view some of the children that are available to be sponsored, please visit our Children In Need page.
There are also scholarship opportunities available for university students. You can provide a scholarship to one of these deserving students for just $20.00 per month. This scholarship will help them with the costs of supplies, transportation, food etc. and will help them be able to continue in their university education. To view some of the college students needing scholarship, please visit our College Scholarships page.
