Three Pillars


Due to extreme poverty and underdevelopment of the areas in the Philippines, many people in rural communities have poor health, with residents suffering from poverty related diseases. Often times they die without being treated. Thus, basic medical care and equipment are needed.

The Foundation for Philippine Progress partners with hospitals and community health programs in the Philippines, and coordinates and funds medical and surgical missions. First mission of this kind was held in November 2018 to several municipalities in Haiyan-stricken areas in Leyte and Samar, Visayas. The Foundation has since regularized health missions to the Philippines, including a 2019 medical mission to urban poor areas in Manila such as Baseco and the Smokey Mountain in Tondo.


A great number of Filipino children and youth in rural communities don't have access to education. Aside from poverty, the location of schools in towns and urban centers prevents many students from attending classes. The Foundation supports the development of community schools in the Philippines to increase access to basic education that is free, within reach, and culturally-responsive.

Human Rights

The human rights conditions in the Philippines are

ever worsening. The Filipino people find themselves in precarious situations with each calamity that come their way. With greater access to reliable health care, accessible education, and basic human rights, more rural and economically marginalized Filipinos will be able to live longer and healthier lives. The Foundation helps to improve access to basic human rights through ensuring sustainable access to water supply and food security in several regions of the Philippines where communities have to constantly rebuild from the havoc wrought by the typhoons and other calamities that hit the country at least 15 times a year.
