SPONSOR A STUDENT FOR A WHOLE YEAR!
For our sponsorship program we aim to sponsor 700 children this school year 2019/2020. Our goal is that through Simply Giving we will sponsor 50 children. It costs PHP 15,000 per student per year (about 300 USD) to sponsor a child in elementary or high school.Young Focus operates in a highly complex environment, holistically addressing a myriad of socio-economic issues for target beneﬁciaries - children and families who live in the Smokey Mountain area (Manila’s former dumpsite). Many scavenge through garbage for a living, searching for recyclable items which they sell to local junk shops.
Giving the most marginalized children living in the Smokey Mountain area the opportunities to realize their potential through access to education, personal growth and work opportunities.
Supporting children throughout their education not just academically, but also through activities which enhance personal and creative growth. In addition, supporting parents with training to create optimal foundations for their children at home.
A changed mindset so children believe they will be able to experience a better situation than their parents, and have the self-confidence and independence to create their own path in life to break free from the cycle of poverty. In order to do that, a basic education is vital, as well as structured programs to build their sense of self. (Specific targets set under each objective).
