Our action in the Philippines

Our program in the Philippines was created at the initiative of French actress Charlotte de Turckheim, who travelled to Cebu to shoot a movie, which featured about 100 street children. The actress was very moved by the plight of the children she met, and reached out to Children of Asia and helped launch a program to support underprivileged girls. Since 1998, Children of Asia has supported vulnerable children on the island of Cebu in meeting their basic needs.

We support close to 450 children each year, from elementary school through to university, by providing them with school supplies, food, medical care, and emotional support. The children we support live primarily with their families in slum areas in Cebu City. In 2013, Children of Asia opened a Training Center in order to broaden its action and provide its university students with support in entering the job market.  

Children of Asia is accredited with the DSWD (Department of Social Welfare and Development) and a member of the Cebu City Task Force on Street Children.
