The Adopt-a-Filipino Advocacy

“He who is kind to the poor lends to the LORD, and God will reward him for what he has done.” Proverbs 19:17

The “Adopt a Filipino Family” is designed to provide long-term solutions to poverty in the Philippines by mobilizing small gifts from generous individuals who are interested in creating jobs, stimulating small businesses, educating children, building and strengthening enterprising families and communities.

The “Adopt a Filipino Family” Advocacy provides opportunities to everyone who wants to make an impact and lasting contribution to one impoverished family through their gifts of:

• PhP500 (or $10 USD) monthly/family
• PhP1,500 (or $30 USD) quarterly/family
• PhP6,000 (or $120 USD) annually/family

*The adoption commitment is a minimum of one year.

Gifts could be made through credit cards, bank deposits, checks and cash.

The gifts will be combined with other APPEND resources so that the families and their children could be provided with the following:

* Enterprise development and growth support (entrepreneurship training and competency development, business skills training and advisory, microfinance if required, product quality enhancement and compliance to rules and regulations, market promotion and business counseling, life and disability insurance to protect them from the effect of sudden death and illnesses)

* Pre-school and college education to indigent children

* Family values, character transformation and leadership development

* Health and nutrition

* High-impact and eco-friendly community-driven projects for the rural poor and indigenous peoples
