Program 1

The Lingap Center

Our new building, dedicated in March of 2006, houses 100
children between the ages of six and 18. The dedicated staff ensures that the
kids eat three meals a day, and go to school so they can build a solid future
and give back to the community. For the first time in many of their lives, the
kids have access to health care and counseling services. They are able to
participate in religious services - a practice not traditionally open to
orphans or street children. They also have time to play and just be kids.

 

Generous donors in the U.S. and the Philippines have made
this possible.

 

Some children stay at the center for a short time until they
can be placed into a safe environment. Other kids who don’t have that option
stay until they reach adulthood. Our “Place at the Table” sponsorship program
ensures that we don’t have to turn away children who desperately need our help
and would otherwise be living on the street.

Program 2

Access to Improved Education

We recognize that education is the key to helping kids
become self-sufficient adults who can share their gifts and talents with their
communities. That’s why we have developed close relationships with nearby
private schools – St. Bernard and West Bay Learning Center.

Program 3

Street Children

In August of 2008, we hired a street educator to go to the
city park five days a week, to teach those children who are unable to attend
school basic arithmetic, reading and hygiene. The program began with five or six children and has since
expanded to an average of 65 - 85 every day, in two locations. In addition to education, the Lingap
Center also provides them with lunch, which for many is their only meal of the
day.
