Summary

The Philippines has been dealing with an economic and educational emergency from COVID-19 for over 16 months, with vulnerable groups continuing to being hit the hardest. All public schools have been closed since March 14, 2020, putting over 20 million children out of school for almost 500 consecutive days - the longest of any country in Asia. FundLife is on-the-ground, reaching the most vulnerable youth through education, protection and economic empowerment COVID-19 response interventions.

Challenge

The Philippines has long been battling widespread poverty and extreme income inequality. COVID-19 has only exacerbated struggles for the most vulnerable groups. Children are in danger of losing their education and getting left behind. In the communities we work, data shows that over 80% of children are severely behind their learning, while over 45% are on the verge of dropping, while 3 in 4 houses do not have internet, making it impossible for children from poverty to learn from home.

Solution

FundLife is directly supporting the current education and opportunity emergency through 'safe and learn at home' packs, designed to keep children protected and with access to learning resources such as internet data and mental wellbeing activity packs. We are also delivering mentorship and digital skills for adolescent girls who have already been forced to drop out of education, reskilling them and providing pathways to dignified employment.

Long-Term Impact

With the support of donors, we can ensure that over 2,000 children are kept safe and stay in school until they reopen. Moreover, if we can meet our goal, we can reach and empower 100 highly vulnerable girls to find dignified employment and give them a real chance to break out of the poverty cycle.
