Children of Asia in the Philippines

Since 1998, Enfants d’Asie has worked in the Philippines

Since 1998, Enfants d’Asie has overseen the social monitoring and education of disadvantaged children on the island of Cebu, in the Philippines.
Enfants d’Asie offers support to children from very poor families that live in shanty towns or remote rural areas, supports them in their schooling and professional integration and gives them the opportunity for a better future.

More than 400 children, from pre-school to university, receive our help: school supplies, food, medical care and moral support. The children mainly live with their families, in the shanty towns of Cebu City. Since 2013, Enfants d’Asie has strengthened its activities in the area of professional integration and academic excellence with the creation of a coaching and professional integration centre, called the Training Center.
The selection process for new students is run by three qualified social workers. The criteria are as follows:

  • The child must be motivated to go to school
  • The child must come from a family with an unstable income
  • The child must come from a large family
  • The monthly income of the family must be less than 9000 pesos (around 175 Euros)
  • The family must be motivated to support the school career of the sponsored child

Our actions in the Philippines

Despite a high economic growth rate of 6.4% per year in 2016 (World Bank), 20% of the poorest Filipinos have only 5% of total income, and social inequalities plague the country. In the Philippines, 40 million people live below the poverty line, including 13 million children, many of whom live in the slums of Cebu Island.
