We are a conduit foundation, and we aim to help Filipinos help other Filipinos in need--Pinoy para sa Pinoy. We channel resources to worthy and effective programs that nurture and educate the youth, safeguard the environment, enrich culture, and nurture hope. Natatanging yaman natin para sa kinabukasan ang ating kabataan. We have partnered with other institutions who protect our children and provide them with proper nutrition.
Payatas Feeding Program
One of the parishes around the Payatas area, Mother of Divine Providence Parish started a feeding program for 50 children aged 1-6 years old and other 25 children aged 6 years old and above who are considered ‘poorest of the poor' in the area. Volunteer mothers from the area manage the purchasing, cooking and the feeding of the children. The feeding program provides one nutritious meal daily including milk. The children under the feeding program are weighed and checked medically before entering the program and then monitored monthly.
Educational assistance for Umayamnon and Sulitnon (indigenous tribes) children of Cabanglasan, Bukidnon
We assisted the Fr. Leoni Mission Foundation, Inc. in preparing children of school age to study in public schools and to become more aware of their rich cultural heritage. Assistance included food, school materials, and teacher's compensation.
Computer Sets for Cainta Elementary School - Special Education (SpEd)
Aimed to prepare persons with disabilities (PWDs) academically for admission to regular schools, the Resource Room in Cainta Elementary School - SpEd was established in 2005. Tanging Yaman provided four computer sets and a telephone line for internet access. Cainta Elementary School - SpEd has students aged 4-25 years old, enrolled at various grade levels from nursery to fourth year high school. Their classes are held 2-4 hours every day and once they are ready for regular schooling, they are endorsed to Cainta Elementary School and High School and other schools, colleges or universities.
Apu Palamguwan Cultural Education Center (APC)
APC was established and registered with the SEC in 2004. It has been recognized by the Department of Education as the first formal indigenous people based education. The Center aims to provide basic education that serves as the foundation for the life-long learning of Lumad children and youth. Tanging Yaman continues to provide funding assistance for accommodation, food subsidy, and tuition fees for twelve APC students.
Feeding Program for Malnourished Children in Elementary Schools of Albay
With the generous donations received for the Agap-Bicol Program, Tanging Yaman, together with the Advocates for Social and Ecological Concerns was able to provide funding for a four-month feeding program for malnourished children in Pioduran, Marigondon and Tiwi in Albay. The total funding was meant only for 350 students but they were able to include 24 students more in the feeding program. With the help and cooperation of parents and teachers, almost all of the student-beneficiaries gained weight.
Food Supplements for Children in Naga
Also under the Agap-Bicol Program and through the efforts of ACI Sisters in Naga, Tanging Yaman was able to provide funding for milk and vitamin supplements for 50 elementary and high school schools students. Milk and vitamins aided in the medication of the children for tuberculosis. Parents of the beneficiaries were very thankful for these supplements because the health of the children improved as they increased their weight.
Divine Healer Learning Center in Sorsogon
The Divine Healer Learning Center was recently recognized by the Department of Education with grade levels from 1-5 and kindergarten. They have their own feeding program for the students and also provide for uniforms, shoes and other school materials needed by their pupils. Newly constructed classrooms for Grades 4 and 5 pupils needed chairs, tables and blackboards. Through the initiative of Fr. Gerard Deveza of the Healing Servants Foundation, Tanging Yaman was able to provide funding assistance for needed classroom fixtures of the school.
