For more than a decade now, our organization in the Philippines, as a humanitarian and child-focused organization, has been touching the lives of more than 13,000 children across the country. The comprehensive programs and services on sponsorships, health, education and child protection, environment, disaster risk reduction, and management, among others, which are implemented with funding support from our donor countries, have remarkably helped the children in improving their lives.
Good Neighbors continue to expand our geographical reach by opening a new Community Development Project (CDP) area in Sitio Bakal, Bagong Silangan, Quezon City, and identifying prospect areas for future expansion. This epoch of our humanitarian work will etch in our history the localization of our sponsorship program. This means that our efforts will lean towards maximizing Philippine resources as the leading source of our support instead of relying too much on donor countries.
The move of establishing our locally-based fund source will introduce a more sustainable development trajectory for the children and the country. Furthermore, this will allow and open more opportunities to Filipinos who are seeking to help their fellow countrymen.
