Tondo is a district located in Manila, Philippines. It is the largest in terms of area and population of Manila’s fourteen districts, with a Census-estimated 628,106 people in 2010. It is also the most densely populated district in the city.
But more than anything, Tondo has literally become a symbol of extreme poverty in the world today!
“We must vigorously talk about the eradication of poverty,” said in 2007 former President Arroyo before Tondo residents, many of whom, particularly those residing around the former Smokey Mountain dump, had come to symbolise the poorest of the poor in the country.
Threefold Christian Alliance has established a solid working relationship with a network of leaders in the Philippines, thus giving our advocates from around the world the opportunity to become part of a student sponsorship program that provides educational support and spiritual growth initiatives for children trapped in extreme poverty.
Unlike many politicians, we are focused on taking action!
For just $40 per month or $480 per year, you can help a Christian child growing in extreme poverty:
- To go to school
- To stay in school
- To thrive spiritually
- Ultimately, due to education, to escape the life of scavenging and become a witness for Christ, an outstanding citizen and a leader in their generation.
Here are some of the students our sponsors are helping to go to School each month, thus giving them a way out of a life of systemic poverty, scavenging, sex trafficking or violence.
As a sponsor you will receive:
- A picture of the student you are sponsoring
- Personal information about him/her and their family
- Opportunities for one-on-one communication and more…
However, please keep in mind communication with pastor Roy and everyone else there is difficult and results may vary when it comes to connecting with individual kids or their parents.
We invite you to consider this exciting opportunity!
