Our Vision & Mission
Young Focus’ vision is to improve the mental, physical and social well-being of young people in poor communities by means of education, health care and personal support.
Young Focus gives underprivileged children and young people the chance to develop themselves intellectually, emotionally, psychologically, and spiritually by means of education and personal coaching.
Young Focus wants to see young people developing their (hidden) talents and gifts and, in doing so, escape the vicious circle of poverty. Young Focus gives a brighter future to children from poverty-stricken families in the Philippines. In order to be as effective as possible, Young Focus works directly with the children in their own environment.
Young Focus follows Christian values and principles.
