If you have able hands, we want your help. Whether it's serving food aid in a kitchen, painting walls of a newly rebuilt school room, or collecting donations, we need you.

The children need you.



Mission & Vision

We have a simple, but robust mission: to help children in need. We do that by focusing on community-based efforts to improve learning environments, provide basic needs and food aid. You can also make a difference.

Recent Programs

We're continually working hard to improve communities throughout the Philippines. If you're interested to know what we've been doing recently, especially if you want to help, please feel free to let us know.

   I have been incredibly fortunate in my life to never have to experience the difficulties I see in the world everyday. I can’t imagine what it’s like to be without the basic necessities of life - and I think it’s a shame that any country should.

With that desire in my heart, I preside over 417 Compassion for Kids.

We are a non profit organization looking to make a difference in our world. I believe that by focusing on the children in these Philippine communities, we’re going to make the most substantial impact. The world is made up of these important social connections and if you foster them positively, they’ll pay huge dividends - in love, care, and a better world.
