"To whom much is given much is expected..."

Not everyone is so fortunate and not everyone has been blessed with the opportunities that we have.

That is why we started the charity "Make a Difference in the Philippines", because we wanted to help change lives in one of the world's poorest countries.

Make a Difference in the Philippines

The Make A Difference in the Philippines programme aims to help education for Philippino children. Working one child, one school at a time.

Over 30 million families in the Philippines live on less than £1 a day. Education is the best way to break the poverty cycle giving children the chance of a better brighter future.

But the government spends an average of only £100 a year per student on actual school supplies. 80% of the education budget goes on a huge bureaucracy.

Sending money out to the Philippines doesn’t always work. It may not be spent on educational supplies and it may be ‘lost’ in the system. Instead we work directly with the schools and give actual educational materials to the children who need them most.

We source supplies and equipment to send to Filipino schools and children. We want to give every one of our children their own pencil case, filled with essential items. Can you help us fill a pencil case for a child with:

• Pens • Pencils • Colouring pens, pencils or crayons • Erasers • Sharpeners • Rulers

We also provide books, desks, chairs and other classroom equipment and furniture for a school.

"Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime." We are supplying the fishing rods!!
