How We Work

We sponsor a school in Cainta, Rizal, which is located just southeast of Manila, Philippines. We enroll at-risk youth who have dropped out of public school due to poverty. Through level-specific curriculum, consistent relationships, and high accountability, we give these students a chance to pursue their education again. We intentionally create an environment that is challenging, supportive, and transformative in every way.

Our school and its students are supported financially by KôZ Sponsors – generous people whose hearts are burdened for at-risk kids in developing countries. Sponsorships provide qualified teachers, leadership developers, nutritious meals, basic medical and dental assistance, secure learning facilities, school supplies and an education thru college. All of our students will either graduate from college or a qualified vocational training institute.

Working Together

STUDENTS

Students in our school come from local informal settlements where clean water, basic medicine, electricity, and space are difficult – sometimes impossible – to come by. They and their families experience incredible challenges on a daily basis. In the face of obstacles and trials, these kids experience the success and inspiration born of renewed hope. Our students and their success is our aim!

STAFF

School professional staff are made up of loving Filipino leaders who have gained credentials for teaching at local universities. They give sacrificially of their hearts and time as they pour into the lives of their students each and every day. They are pastors, counselors, and teachers who work to give at-risk youth every possible chance to succeed.

KOZ SPONSORS

Our sponsors and donors make financial contributions toward our mission of providing education, opportunity and hope to at-risk youth in the Philippines. In addition, sponsors take time to encourage their student’s through communication as well as prayer.

Two Ways to Help:

KôZ Donor

Our passion is to give at-risk youth a second chance at completing their education. We are eager to see their heart hopes restored – educationally, physically, and spiritually. We presently sponsor one school in Cainta, Rizal which is reaching nearly 160 students. Our goal over the next few years is to broaden the enrollment capability of this school in order to reach more students. In addition to this, in the future we have a desire to start a new school in a different urban poor community to reach other young people equally desperate for change and opportunity.

Your financial investment can make these goals a reality. Would you consider becoming a KôZ Donor and be a part of our mission to bring education, opportunity and hope to young people in Manila?

KôZ Student Sponsor

You may want to sponsor a specific young person in order to pray for and encourage them. We created the KôZ Student Sponsorship program because we have found that many people cherish the special connection they have with individual students. Plus we have found that the encouragement and prayer from a Sponsor makes a tremendous impact on the young person. In some cases the success and persistence of a young person to do what they need to do given their incredibly difficult circumstances is significantly enhanced by the love and support of a Sponsor.

Would you consider embracing an opportunity to greatly encourage a young person in a way that brings them inspiration, courage and hope? Would you consider sponsoring a young person?
