The outreach programme is for students who remain living with family, but without help could end up working on the dump .
Keeping families together
Grapevine is an outreach programme for gifted children, like Maria Ocampo*, who remains living with her sister Mercy and mother Angel but without support would find attending school very difficult and may have to abandon her education and work as a scavenger on the dump to provide income for the family.
Support for schooling
Sharing the benefits
Creating a positive cycle
Maria Ocampo is thankful for her British sponsor who supports her education. She uses what she has learned at school to teach her younger sister.
Your sponsorship can make this happen
To be able to participate each Grapevine child like Maria needs £25 of support every month. That is less than £1 per day. You can choose to sponsor a specific child, or to give to the project generally.
- Introductory information about your sponsored child -
- An end of school year annual report on your child’s progress -
- A Christmas card written by your child -
£25 per month gives your sponsored child the full opportunity at school with books, uniforms and travel fares as well as support for the family and childs full education

More on sponsorship
You are invited (but do not have to) send birthday and Christmas cards to your child in our regular parcels to Manila. If you want to send a gift we ask that you make a bank payment to us in the UK, £10 is a good amount, and we transfer that to the Philippines. Your sponsored child gets to spend that locally. Please note that it can take a couple of months to get cards to your child.
