Millions of children in the Philippines are illiterate.
Your gift can empower them to
change their lives.
Our vision is to lift all homeless, displaced, disadvantaged youth out of poverty by supporting critical tutoring, educational, and nutritional programs.
Only $5.00 per month will keep
three children in school for a year.
Illiteracy IN the
The Hesser Foundation funds schools for improvised students in the Philippines. These students come from isolated fishing and farming communities that are prone to natural disasters and do not have any minimum wage. When they cannot pay the fees they give up school and work for $2.00 per 10 hour day to help support their families. Since 2015 The Hesser Foundation has helped students stay in school by providing for their school fees and supplies.
School should be free but it is not. With your donation of only $.50 a day ($15) We provide a student the money for one year for school charges and books.
They go to Elementary Schools and National High Schools.
Your donations have been providing tuition and books to our scholars since 2015.
Most of the children are raised by poor or single parents who are forced to support their family on less than two dollars a day. This is why they cannot afford to send their child to school.
Pennies For Pencils
Your donations of only $.33 a day ($10) will provide those supplies needed for a hard-working student for a year every month.
Without the money for basic education age-appropriate supplies like ball pens, pencils, erasers, notebook, rulers, scissors, crayons and glue children from developing countries are often turned away from school because they cannot fully participate.
This will ensure the infrastructure in order to provide students with learning environment they need.
TUTORING for Children
Our local unpaid volunteers help the children with their school work individually and in study groups because their illiterate parents cannot.
We are very proud of our volunteers who unselfishly give up room in their home for computer stations and teaching.
We have always relied on a dedicated team of local unpaid volunteers. This way the money is given directly to the schools for tuition and the school supplies are directly given to the child.
"The severe scarcity of books among filipino students is a serious crisis that must be addressed with urgency—with an immediate reallocation of public funds for the printing of books and the building of libraries."
Joel Ruiz Butuyan, Philippine Daily inquirer
"Because we are poor, my grandparents cannot afford to send us to school. My grandparents are fisherman and they are getting old. My parents broke up and they left us with nothing. I want to continue to go to school so I can help my brothers and sisters as well."
