Sponsored books to Filipino communities

Since the correlation between the lack of schooling and the degree of poverty is so strong, the objective of volunteers in the Phillipines is to encourage those who have enrolled their children that it’s worth the effort and expense needed to keep their children enrolled. The other great need in Filipino day cares is quality teaching materials and curriculums, and Activated Ministries was happy to sponsor the books and teaching materials which were distributed to dozens of schools in these underprivileged neighborhoods.

Books and teaching aids to low income Filipino schools

So we went ahead and with the help of the DSWD and Barangay (town) officials we arranged two events in which four towns would be involved, with a total of 17 Day Care centers and around 1050 children.

Back To School Event - 2012

Big smiles crossed our faces as we read that Activated Ministries had once again granted our request for sponsored educational materials to be donated to thousands of young children in poor areas of the Phillipines. As we called the missionary in Mindoro who is responsible for feeding over 100 poor children 4 times a week she was in tears at the generosity of the gift of materials we would be able to give her and her volunteer teachers.
