People often ask how they can help street and urban poor children in Metro Manila. Kaibigan provides a transparent and direct way of reaching some of these children. Here are few of the ways you can get involved:
Make a donation. Even a small donation can make a big difference. For example, a donation of Php 6,000.00 (about $130) can save the life of a poor child suffering from primary TB.
Volunteer. Kaibigan welcomes volunteers who can spend time with children, either teaching or playing with them when school is over. We also have active choral and theater groups.
Raise funds with colleagues and friends. Organize an activity (a bazaar for example and share the proceeds with Kaibigan and other charitable organizations.
Help market and sell Kaibigan products. Our poor families make some excellent products (belts, bags, candles, rugs, etc.) but we always need new outlets for them.
Drop by and meet the staff. Come by our office and meet Director, Susan Biteng and her staff. Everyone is welcome, and everyone's help is needed.
