Send 200 Filipino kids to better daycare centers

by Haligi ng Bata, Inc. Vetted since 2018


The project will improve 4 ill-equipped daycare centers in poor rural communities located in La Union, Northern Philippines. Through this, 200 poor Filipino children age 3 to 5 years old will have free access to learning facilities that will ignite their interest & love for knowledge & learning. Improvements include classroom repairs; creating libraries with books & toys; provision of audio-visual equipment such as televisions & educational videos; & teachers' trainings on children's rights.

Despite early childhood care & development laws, Philippine public daycares - especially in poor rural La Union areas - still deal with budget issues resulting to scant facilities, teaching materials, & trained personnel. Education records show that over 600,000 kids who are products of inadequate daycare centers get lower grades as primary students. Scholarship Programs may only help a select few, thus HBI will improve under-equipped public daycares so they can reach more community children.


HBI improves 4 community daycare centers in Balaoan, Sudipen & Santol, La Union by renovating & repairing daycare facilities (improvement of activity areas & sanitation facilities); creating libraries & reading corners in rooms; increasing teaching & learning materials (provisions of educational toys, puzzles, and audio-visual equipment); & improving the capacities of daycare volunteers & teachers in protecting the rights of their students (child's rights protection seminars).

Long-Term Impact

The project will improve and empower four (4) Public Daycare Centers in poor, mountainous, and under-served communities in Balaoan, Sudipen, and Santol, La Union for the benefit of at least 200 enrolled indigent daycare students (or 50 students per center). Through this project, these improved public daycare facilities will be empowered to impart quality pre-Kindergarten education not only to their current students, but also to future learners and students in their communities.
