We invite you to join Convoy of Hope on this unique experience designed to share how our Women’s Empowerment and Children’s Feeding programs are producing transformational change all across the Philippines.
About This Trip
Convoy of Hope began operating in the Philippines in 2003 based on strong partnerships that existed on the ground and our numerous responses to disasters in the region. More than 16,000 children are enrolled in our Children’s Feeding Initiative. In total, 4,380,480 meals were distributed in 2018.
In 2014, Convoy of Hope piloted the Micro+ program, with the objective of helping households improve their food security and nutritional practices. The pilot was started with 10 participants and focused on on women living in Lucena City. The businesses women selected included small retail shops, food production, food sales, fishing boat rental, animal husbandry, and meat and vegetable wholesale/retail.
We look forward to introducing you to our in-country partners and the women, children and families we are helping in the Philippines. It will be a journey you’ll never forget.
