KRIS Library is an award-winning non-profit organization based in the Philippines that is trying to do just that. In the past two years, it has helped 132 of the poorest Filipino students get an education from preschool to elementary to high school to college.
Our scholars are the children of farmers, fishermen, tricycle drivers, single mothers, most of whom had never reached college. Our scholars hail from rural towns in Zamboanga City to urban slum areas in Metro Manila. They are often one out of 5-7 siblings. They come from families who survive with $2 a day. They live a day-to-day existence in search for food, better shelter, better health, and hope.
Despite that, they persevere. Some walk long kilometers, even swim, just to go to school. Some are determined to finish their schooling even though their own parents are asking them to work instead. And many of them are at the top of their class. All of them are clinging to hope.
But, now, you have the opportunity to give them that hope.
That's because education can change the game for these Filipino kids. That's because education is their chance to rise up from poverty.
Anything you can give to contribute is a priceless amount of hope for these kids and KRIS Library. There is no minimum amount. Anything you will find it in your heart to donate can save the future of our scholars.
And if their futures are a little better, then ours will be better too. As Filipinos, we pull one another upwards. As global citizens, we move the world together.
