As you may know we are here in a country of mostly Catholics and Iglesia ni Cristo plus the country is run by Catholics. We run our disciple Makers places of worship mostly in rented buildings because it is hard to get these people into house church. But the problem is when these religions find out that we rent they do all they can to get us out of the buildings by getting the landlords to say they need the building. Then we have the problem of finding another building, and we lose some of the people that came before.
To this end we want to be able to buy cheap land and build cheap buildings as our places of worship called Disciple Makers. We will build these places of worship as a basic building, with none of the fancy trimming other religions add. We need your help to do this please any love offering of any amount at any time you can manage please. Also If you have or are starting a Disciple Makers church in a home or building please consider giving love offering towards these building and witnessing here please.
We believe that the war that should unify all nations is the war against poverty. And we believe that the most effective weapon against poverty is education. The most effective way of helping people is by teaching and training them to help themselves.
WILL YOU HELP US TO HELP AS MANY AS WE CAN
Research shows that children who don’t start school at the right age are more likely to have learning difficulties, to repeat or drop out. Most dropouts occur in Grades 1 and 2 which could indicate lack of school readiness
Poverty is one of the main causes of the country’s poor education record and has affected participation in education in more ways than one
One out of six school-age Filipino children is not enrolled, figures from the Department of Education (DepEd) and the National Statistical Coordination Board (NSCB) revealed.
The chronic lack of teachers and educational materials highlights the low priority government gives education. According to the law, the education sector should receive the highest share of the national government budget, but its allocations are dwarfed by the huge amounts government shells out for debt servicing.
Lack of government resources has resulted in falling participation and completion rates. 5.7 million children (1.8 million in the elementary level and 3.9 million in the secondary level) are not enrolled in school. Further, for every 10 Grade 1 students enrolled, 3 will not finish elementary and four will not finish high school.
In the Philippines elementary and high school education is supposed to be provided free to the students by the government as their human right. But it’s not free. The children can’t enroll and that’s why there are hundreds of thousands of street children, working children and abused children begging on the streets and living in slums and unbelievable poverty surrounded by the sumptuous wealth of the few rich that have it all. That’s the reason they unknowingly take food from pimps and pedophiles and are trafficked with promises of food and money into the sex business.
Despite the annual increase in the budget for basic education, fewer children are enrolling in schools. According to figures from the Department of Education and the National Statistical Coordination Board in the Philippines, 1 in 6 Filipino kids will not attend school. Further, only 7 out of 10 kids will complete elementary school. Of those 7 kids, only 4 will complete high school, and of those 4, 1 will proceed onto university. The main reason for this? Poverty.
With help from people like
you, we sponsor a number of children to attend school here in La Union
and in Leyte. We need a lot more help as many are in need of a helping
hand in many other parts of the Philippines as well. Many children are
on our books waiting for a chance to go to school. The children we
help to go to school, we give help for their union forms, books, pens,
etc, schools bags, lunch, fares, exams,
and school projects .
Thousands of urban slum dwellers including those in the communities of the Philippines capital of Manila live amid filth and swirls of toxic smoke as they eke out a living making charcoal from wood scavenged from nearby garbage dumps and construction sites.Young children work without masks or gloves, and sometimes they are not even wearing shoes as they sift through charcoal in search of nails to sell at the junkyard.
Many charcoal-making families earn just 70 pesos a day, or $1.60, well below the Philippines' minimum wage rate of approximately 400 pesos, or $9 a day. The children collecting the nails may make only the equivalent of 25 to 40 cents in pesos.
