WHERE WE ARE
Our main area of outreach, are to the people living in Bagumbayan and the surrounding areas of Taguig in the Metro Manila area of The Philippines.
The Philippines is recovering from a history of political corruption, social unrest and a series of natural disasters that have contributed to widespread poverty and unemployment. Child mortality rates in the Philippines have steadily declined: standing at 61 under five deaths for every 1000 live births in 1990 and decreasing to 32 under five deaths for every 1000 live births in 2008. Child mortality disparities exist across regions and are higher in rural areas. Since 2001, poverty has worsened due to a high population growth rate and inequitable distribution of income. Joshua Care International began working in the Philippines in 2005 and has helped hundreds of these children over the last 12 years. Currently around 70 Filipino students are enrolled in Mt Moriah Christian Academy and local Taguig University's. Our goal is to reach out to Filipino children; helping provide them the opportunity to rise above their circumstances and become all God has created them to be.
