Child Sponsorship

The island of Palawan is located at the eastern part of the Philippines.  The development project is located at Puerto Princessa City, Palawan.  Agriculture plays a big role in its economy.  The province has one of the highest poverty rates at 58.3%.  Recent report shows that 9 in 100 children are malnourished.  Access to safe water supply and sanitary toilet facilities is also a concern for many households. Due to lack of resources, most students walk hours to and from school, crossing rivers and mountains every day.  Most of these children would eventually stop going to school.
