Education in the Philippines

Boys and Girls Town

Donate to help transform lives


This program immerses impoverished children in a strong, Catholic learning environment so they can escape the bonds of poverty and lead successful lives.

A solid education is one of the most effective tools for lifting children and families out of poverty, but in the Philippines, poor young people often lack access to the training they need to secure a better life. The Sisters of Mary School wants to break this cycle with Boys and Girls Town, an award-winning boarding school. This program gives underprivileged youth a quality Catholic education and job training to help them achieve their God-given potential.

In that rare event that more funds are received than are required for a specific project, the additional funds will be used to meet the most urgent needs.
