Education is the most powerful tool to overcome poverty for children and young adults. Young Focus therefore provides access to education, as well as the chance for children to develop themselves intellectually, emotionally and psychologically. Young Focus wants them to develop their hidden talents and reach their full potential.

Our video…

Two Young Focus students, Salve and Ivan, share about their lives, their backgrounds, their struggles, their education, hopes and dreams.
They live in Manila’s Smokey Mountain area. In this area thousands of families rely directly or indirectly on the garbage ‘industry’. Jobs range from scavenging for recyclable materials to driving bike taxis. The average family income with these jobs is $5 USD/day. Financial constraints, as well as a lack of educational and social support, mean that many children are unable to complete their education, and in turn, are unable to break the cycle of poverty.


About getting involved…

Sponsor a child

You can sponsor a child in elementary, high school for USD 30 (PHP 1,500 / EUR 30 / GBP 25.00) a month. A student who follows college or university costs USD 60 per month (PHP 3,000 / EUR 60 / GBP 50.00).

You can make a donation towards our preschool, the education of children, the children who dropped out of school or donate towards the family & social care programs.
