Hi Marilu! Thank you so much for reaching out to Compassion regarding partnership! We are thankful to see the amazing work you are doing with these children and mothers! May I ask, are you partnered with a local church? What age range are the children in your program? And what area do you live in? Thank you so much for your response, as it will help us to direct you a bit better!

Dear Shannon,

Yes, we also have a church, Jesus Christ Our Light Fellowship, under CBAP, located in Bacolod City, Negros Occidental, Philippines, right in our center. Our parents and children go to that church. Headed by Pastor Jun Cordova, our Vice President in our organization.

Our children are ages 4 to 16. Presently, we are sending one student, who has been with us for four years to college. We have 125 kids, including 12 babies and ages 1 to five years old. Who are not in school yet. We have 80 students that need school assistance.

Our organization can hardly meet their needs. So we are planning to move to a bigger place because we have outgrew our center. The thing is we can not afford the rent. So we are asking Compassion International to partner with us, if possible. We want to start our Livelihood Programs for the mothers so that we can be self sufficient in the coming years.

Our purpose is to provide transformational opportunities to Street and unfortunate children and their families through the gospel of Jesus Christ. Through this livelihood program we can continue to share the gospel, of Jesus Christ, feeding, training, and support the children in their studies. Presently, we have one student in STI University, Bacolod City, who is taking up Bachelors in Arts and Sciences, who we help.

We have great plans for our Livelihood Programs. We will train our mothers in cooking, baking, sewing and housekeeping. We will be catering meals to offer to any Christian churches who will need pack lunches for their seminars. We will also open God's helping Hands Services to the families who need helpers to do household chores. We will also sew some pillow, throw cases, curtains and any sewing products to sell. So please be a part of our organization.

We are legally licensed and our complete name is: Bacolod Street Kids Feeding, Training & Livelihood Program, Inc., we have web page FB.me/bacolodstreetkids. Please visit our Facebook Account, under my name as Marilu Neri Custer, I manage the group account. We usually feed the children every Saturday, after their Bible Classes. We have five classes, ages 5-6 years old, 7-9 years old, 10-12 years old, 13 to 16 who are the teens and lastly the parents. There are more or less 125 children and 45 mothers and fathers. We have done this for four years already by the grace of God. There are 80 born again children and 25 mothers.

Hopefully we can partner with you. Thank you for getting back to us. God bless you.
