Through as many as 75 initiatives in 19 countries, HOPE International Development Agency Canada enabled nearly 820,000 of the world’s poorest families to begin their journey out of poverty in 2014 alone.
Initiatives include providing families with access to clean water, education, training, micro-credit loans, income development, agricultural training, and community development to name a few.
HOPE International Development Agency SG is currently focused on bringing positive change to the poorest of the poor living in the Philippines.
Bringing lasting change to the Philippines
HOPE International Development Agency has a long-term commitment to the people of the Philippines. One example and result of this commitment is the incredible transformation achieved in the lives of Indigenous Peoples on the southern Philippine island of Mindanao.
At the centre of the work is clean water, which is the beginning of real change and real development. But additionally, through investments in elementary and college education, training in health care, sustainable agriculture and food security, communities are taking control of their own futures and becoming self sufficient.
Most recently, our work among families in the Philippines included education, skills development, primary, secondary and college education, spring capping to provide clean water, sustainable agriculture training, emergency relief in the aftermath of Typhoon Bopha and Typhoon Haiyan.
Striving to provide children and young people with an education
We are currently working closely with the Pamulaan Center for Indigenous Peoples Education. Pamulaan is a volunteer organization and a non-governmental and non-profit educational institution in the Philippines. Its main thrust and objective is to provide opportunities for poor and marginalized indigenous children and youth to have access on quality and culture-based education.
To achieve its mission, Pamulaan creates culturally appropriate and relevant pathways of TRAINING and FORMATION for the indigenous children, youth, community leaders, and development workers from various indigenous communities in the country. Pamulaan Center hopes to produce graduates equipped with knowledge, values and skills to initiate collaborative actions towards sustainable development in their communities.
