TULONG

v. TO HELP THOSE IN NEED

OUR MISSION 

In the Philippines, whether a child attends a public or private institution school fees are mandatory.  Students in public high school in the Philippines are required to pay annual educational fees that average around $50 U.S. dollars - this cost includes school uniforms, school supplies, and extracurricular activities. This financial burden is placed on parents whose priorities are making sure their children have enough food to eat, have shelter to come home to every evening, and clothing to wear. Even more unfortunate, poverty stricken families of rural villages tend to send their sons to school over their daughters - a tradition that has reinforced the decaying rate of female graduates of the Philippines. Our mission is to alleviate the financial stress annual tuition creates within a students' family and empower them to seek their academic ambitions.

The Tulong Foundation envisions a world where girls and boys of impoverished countries have the confidence to pursue all of their academic aspirations regardless of their socioeconomic background. While monetary aid from international humanitarian organizations are allocated to larger cities, our impact focuses on the much smaller villages and provinces that do not usually receive help because of their isolated location. Our volunteers and donors personally venture into the southern most regions of the Philippines and connect with provinces who see little to no help from foreign philanthropy organizations.  With your support, students from remote areas will be given the opportunity to pursue their academic interests without the challenges and hardships one faces while living in a rural, poverty-stricken community

MEET THE FOUNDERS
 

Marevi and Averie Bishop, a mother and daughter duo, initially created The Tulong Foundation to aid Marevi's hometown of Banga, Mindanao. Without a formal education, Marevi knew the importance of achieving an education - especially in a poverty stricken community. With a heart to give and a mentality to encourage others, Marevi and her daughter Averie created The Tulong Foundation in 2015. It currently sponsors over 20 children in the south of the Philippines. The Foundation has expanded to include ventures such as teaching locals sustainable farming skills and how to find and filter clean drinking water. The Tulong Foundation has been chosen to attend the Clinton Global Initiative Conference, a forum that brings together civic leaders and humanitarian activists in order to create innovative solutions for the world's most pressing matters. Averie will be representing their organization at the national conference in Boston, Massachusetts this coming October.

Since the creation of The Tulong Foundation in 2015, we have had the opportunity to sponsor over 20 students. You can make lasting change in a life by helping provide nutrition and health, childhood development and education for an entire year - all for less than $1 a day. 

Your generosity to sponsor a child in the Philippines also lifts entire communities. Our programs reach children’s parents, caregivers and community members. Together we help save children’s lives, protect them from exploitation and provide them with hope for the future.
