In the Philippines the people make less than $2.00 per day. Many are single parents. They cannot feed their children let alone pay $25.00 a year for schooling. This is the reason that illiteracy is past down from one generation to the next. These unschooled children are in the streets or are in high-risk but low-paying jobs.

Charitable gifts made to most nonprofit organizations officially recognized by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as having 501(c) (3) status are considered to be tax deductible contribution. Many entities that seem to have a charitable purpose are not officially recognized by the IRS as 501(c) (3) entities. Even if such organizations puts the money to good use or for a worthy cause, you are not be able to legally take a tax deduction.
When taking a tax deductible donation, the IRS will require a written receipt; a form of communication from the receiving agency; or a bank record of the gift, such as a cancelled check or bank statement. If you are using a bank record as your receipt, the document must specify the amount of the payment, the date it was posted or paid, and the name of the recipient. It is important to note the donor’s checkbook register, or any other type of documentation prepared by the donor, will not be sufficient to show proof of contribution.
