Summary

In the Philippines, religious conflict and natural disasters have caused suffering for millions of Filipino children. This program provides care for children who are victims of the Covid-19 virus and other disasters. Inter-faith cooperation teaches students the value of teamwork and unity. We provide face masks, basic foods, clean water and hygiene. In response to the Covid-9 crisis, we are currently providing protection, hand-wash, and nutrition programs for more than 3,000 children.

Challenge

Poverty, storms, disease epidemics, and inter-cultural violence are endemic in the Philippines. A school-aged population of more than 65 million children are mostly impoverished and malnourished. Sulu Province with a majority Muslim population remains near the bottom of the UN's worldwide Human Development Index. Christian communities in Visayas are recovering from natural disasters. Both regions are hard hit with the global Covid-19 pandemic and lack basic protection and medical supplies.

Solution

This program will assist 3,500 children in Mindanao and Visayas. They are overcoming extreme poverty and communal violence through integrated literacy, livelihood skills, and health support. Before the pandemic, we created a social media network for Muslim and Christian educators and children to share their new skills, hopes, and dreams. Mothers and fathers of pupils assist teachers to cook daily meals. We have provided thousands of books, school supplies, garden tools and fresh water systems.

Long-Term Impact

The long-term impact of this program empowers Christian and Muslim communities to learn from each other and overcome damage caused by the viral pandemic. Asia America Initiative serves as a bridge for action. Our social media facilitates transparent communication and dispels fear and myths that alienate communities who feel alone and abandoned. Starting with children, positive interaction and equal treatment of various cultural groups by AAI facilitates mutual respect and inspiration.
