THE ISSUES: EDUCATION

All too often it is the poor who are deprived access to education. Illiteracy makes them vulnerable to abuse and various forms of exploitation which only fuels the continuing cycle of poverty and hardship in their lives.

Literacy is an equalizer that offers these underprivileged children better opportunities to participate in economic development and nation-building later on in life.

OUR RESPONSE

Fishes & Loaves offers educational assistance in the form of a scholarship program, as well as after-school tutorial and day-care services to selected under-privileged yet deserving youths that we often identify through our feeding programs.
Other non-formal types of education such as arts and music workshops, sports activities and special field trips are also conducted in order to supplement and maximize the children’s potential.

You can play an important role in helping Fishes & Loaves transform lives. Throughout the year, Fishes & Loaves is abuzz with activities to feed hungry children in body, mind and spirit.
