Through the Education Program, children of the poorest of the poor are given great opportunities to fulfill their dreams of earning a college degree and to have a brighter future. The goal is to address the educational needs by providing scholarship to financially-challenged but deserving students.
Formal Education (Grade 1 to College)
The sponsored students receive educational assistance for their tuition and miscellaneous fees, school needs such as school supplies, shoes, bags, school and PE uniforms, transportation allowances and others.
KM Foundation believes that the education of our children and youth is the most useful way to uplift the lives of the deprived and marginalized members of society. By and large, regardless of religion and race, earning a degree in college and eventually finding a stable job is the dream of every human being especially the poor.
Access to Information
Sinag ng Pag-asa Library, donated by Reed Elsevier Philippines, offers a wide variety of books and other useful references to encourage the children to read and to study. The availability of computers with WiFi is very beneficial to students’ research papers and other school-related assignments. Educational puzzles are also offered to very young children.
This program assures that the health of the scholars is being monitored. Monthly food supplements (groceries) are provided to our grade school sponsored students. Nutritious meals and snacks are also served during our feeding program. Children with primary complex receive milk supplements. Medical assistance such as medicines, laboratory tests, and x-ray is also provided to our sponsored children.
Scholars are encouraged to attend catechism to nourish their spiritual lives. It is also a way to deepen the relationship of the child to his family as his inspiration to pursue his goals in life and letting God be the center of their relationships.
The unique difference between KM Foundation and other organizations is not just a child is sponsored. A community is identified as in need and then sponsors are sought for children within that community. The community is then designed as Basic Ecclesial Community (BEC). This community holds a small group gospel sharing of parents every week in every area. The BEC builds cooperation, independence and love of one’s brothers and sisters.
This program includes emergency assistance, housing repair/assistance, electric fans for families and funeral assistance to scholars and immediate family members.
