The number of individuals we served has exceeded 120,000 since we were founded in 2008 thanks to your help. Take a look at a few amazing photos below that highlight some of our progress:

Each year 6000 Filipino school-aged children from 26 Barangays residing in Tarlac City, Philippines attend school without eating breakfast or lunch. That's why we continue to partner with Google's OneToday Project who helps raise donations to support this critical program.
35% of these children are poor! They will miss at least 2 days of school per week and due to a lack of resources their education will be effected. Their families lack the financial resources to provide uniforms, school supplies, tuition, transportation, and other critical needs.
You can make a difference by providing thousands of K through 6th grade students with a daily school lunch, pencils, paper, notepads, books, and transportation costs. We can't do it alone. 100% of your donation(s) will help the most vulnerable populations receive a valuable education and proper nutrition during school.
30% out of 387 students attending Maluid Cabrera Elementary School here in the Philippines will not eat lunch today. That's just 1 school out of 26. CEPI decreases the number of children not receiving a meal during school today by providing nutrition programs, livelihood, and micro-finance projects abroad.
The Staff here at Maluid Cabrera Elementary School in Victoria Province, Philippines work tirelessly to educate children. We have created a priority list of immediate and long term needs and they are as follows:
1. Nutrition Program
2 School Supplies (books, pens, pencils, writing paper, etc.)
3. New bathroom facilities, water well pump, desks, chairs, computers, and,
4.Two Classroom Expansion Project (long-term) to begin during the summer months of 2016 with completion no later than November 2016.
We're working with families, children, staff, volunteers, and government officials to provide healthy nutrition and develop advance facilities. During a meeting with the Tarlac Barangay President Mario Cajuigan the need for these critical programs and services was confirmed by CEPI's President and CEO, John McKnight during on-site tours. Furthermore, we discussed the potential to increase the project throughout the municipality to the remaining 25 schools once we are up and running solid. We need your support in order to make this happen.
