Keep the cycle of illiteracy from passing from one generation to the next.
Every year, thousands of young and healthy minds are going to waste in the Philippines because the families cannot pay the $25.00 per year for their children to stay in school. We wish to break the cycle of illiteracy nurturing a child’s ability to overcome their circumstances and go on to contribute positively to their community.
The money collected that is passed on to the children’s schools is for tuition, $15.00 per year and supplies, $10.00 per year. Our offices are donated and we do not take a salary. We have always relied on a dedicated team of local volunteers this way the money is given directly to the schools for tuition and supplies.
Filipino children that cannot attend school are compelled to help support the needs of their family. Close to a million Filipino youths work as garbage scavengers in public dumps. The working conditions are filthy and have serious effects on the health of those individuals. Other children work in farms and plantations, in dangerous mines, on streets, in factories, and in private homes as child domestic workers. These children have jobs that place them in immediate physical danger.
In the Philippines, we are working in very small cities untouched by mainstream organizations because of their size.
We want to approve every child, no matter what their circumstances but there is only so much we can do without your help.Their family has less than two dollars per day which to survive, there is no money for their children’s education. If you will donate for just one child at a time we will be able to help one school at a time!
The Hesser Foundation a not-for-profit section 501 (c) 3 charity.
We wish you a new year filled with peace, joy, and meaning.
