Answering the Cry of the Poor

Main aim of the charity

Education and Community Building

How the employee got involved and why

I got involve in this cause as part of our education and community building initiatives. We believe that small act of sharing can ripple and does have big impact in the long run.

What work does the employee do for charity?

Our work involves Education sponsorship program wherein we pool funds for our scholars. What is unique here is that we don't sponsor bring and smart individuals rather we focus on those students who were slow learners, those who really struggle with their studies which we believe are due to their circumstances. We also have community development wherein we provide shelter through building houses ourselves with our home partners as well. This way even if they are poor, we are able to revive the dignity that they need to carry on with life, not matter how poor they are. From there, we also help them with a livelihood program, hence can assist them with their daily financial needs. We also have disaster response program to assist those who are victims of calamities and natural disaster.

What impact would winning have on the charity?

Winning is definitely an cherry and icing on the cake, winning means more help for our scholars, not only those in Philippines but also those who are in Papua New Guinea, Kenya, India and Solomon Island. Our mission to continue this movement is way more than raising funds but to share more love, our time, talents and treasures to our less fortunate brothers and sisters.

What impact would winning have on the employee?

I want to make that small step to elevate this cause to a larger scale. I want to honor our volunteers, our scholars who strive to be better in their studies not matter how difficult their lives are. And I want to help more home partners to have a decent home, a place that they don't have to worry when typhoon or storm hits their place. That they will feel safe and love and cared for no matter how poor or empty they are. That way I want, we want to give continuous try that soon even a lot are poor, we are rich in love, kindness and compassion.
