FundLife Bagged Awards from Department of of Education
The Philippines has one of the highest poverty rates in the world. Even before COVID-19, the country was facing an educational crisis which has now escalated into an emergency as 22 million students have no access to equitable education.
According to studies, adolescents who dropout of school are 4x more likely to engage in abhorrent activities and at high risk of becoming victims of abuse and exploitation.
FundLife supports the most vulnerable, marginalized and at-risk children and youth by providing play-based curriculums and Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) for schools and communities.
Working in direct collaboration with the Department of Education and vulnerable communities, FundLife creates a purposeful play-based program that sparks a love for learning, betterment and growth among children.

This is the organization's 3rd time to be recognized since 2019. Second award is the Top 23 Education Stakeholder and Benefactor for CY 2021 in Region VII.
