Project Report | Mar 1, 2023
PAGA Update, March 2023

By Terry Haas | President Emeritus

Dear donors,

Poor children in the Philippines stop going to school because they have to work, maybe just selling vegetables on the street for 100  pesos per day or less,  which leaves them without the literacy and basic vocational skills needed to improve their situation. With little income and few options, the following generations of children are also more likely to leave school in order “to help” the family,  perpetuating a multi-generational cycle of poverty.

Even without the stigma attached to Filipino-Amerasian youth, poverty is a trap that’s not easy to evade. It’s a depressing, dream-killing cycle.

PAGA helps its beneficiaries to complete their schooling by providing a modest ‘educational incentive’ to their beneficiary families (less than USD $20/month) provided that they remain enrolled in school, in good standing. The detailed requirements to receive the incentives are in a signed memorandum between PAGA, the student, and the family, and reviewed monthly by a PAGA social worker. Occasionally PAGA will provide additional assistance to students who need school uniforms and other school supplies or who have family medical conditions.

Additionally, PAGA social workers provide webinars to improve study habits, coping with stress, financial management, and more.

See the attached recent newsletters for more insights into the PAGA program, and as always, we thank you for your continued support.
