Jesus Loves The Little Children Foundation (JLLCF): 

River Springs School – Pasig City, Philippines

JLLCF was founded in 1998 by Pastor Chito and Rachel Sanchez. River Springs School provides access to quality education to disadvantaged children in Pasig City. Education is the key to escaping poverty, but 5.6 million is the number of “out of school” children and youth in the Philippines, a rate that has tripled over the last decade.

Pinagbuhatan slum hosts the biggest depressed area in Pasig City and is home to around 105,435 residents. Being also a low-lying area, it is prone to frequent flooding which worsens the already strained circumstances of its disadvantaged people. JLLCF helps increase the number of children who have completed pre-school and elementary education; reaching their goal is to empower children-at-risk in the slums of the Philippines.Education is the key to escaping poverty, but there are 5.6 million “out of school” children and youth in the Philippines, a rate that has tripled over the last decade.

JLLCF engages and participates in community development, poverty reduction and in uplifting the conditions of needy families in areas where these issues intersect with children and the poor. In addition, JLLCF is actively involved and networks with government and non-government agencies in educating the general populace about the overwhelming global and national issues of children at risk. Their goal is to empower children-at-risk in theslums of the Philippines.

Be A Hero has worked closely with JLLCI, including building a large school and providing monthly sponsorship funds to assist with the care of many of the poor children who are now able to attend school.

 None of these children would be in school without the funding from Be A Hero to build this large school, and provide on-going support.
