Aklan

Child Sponsorship

Aklan is located in the western region of the country that includes the famous destination of Boracay. The development project named Aklan 1 is located in Kalibo, Aklan.  Besides tourism, the people are engaged in the farming and fishing industries.  The province is considered as one of the poorer provinces in the county with more than 30% of the population living below the national poverty line.  Due to lack of resources children would labor together with their parents to add on to the family income either in the field or at sea, leading to a high dropout rate in schools.
