Fundamental Learning Academy for Girls (FLAG) is a Canadian-based not-for-profit organization that educates and supports underprivileged girls in the Philippines.
FLAG was established in 2010, and is an official not-for-profit organization recognized by the Government of Canada. Our Learning Centre is located in Las Pinas, Metro Manila, Philippines. Need to include something here about why Las Pinas suffers from poverty. Currently, we support learning opportunities for girls, and provide assistance to families. In the last eight years, students have graduated from our program.
Education is only one of the many ways we contribute to the community in Las Pinas. We also conduct nutrition programs, adult professional training, and we are exploring interest-free micro loads for qualified families.Learn more about ICS >
In communities afflicted by poverty, girls are at their most vulnerable. They are often bypassed when it comes to educational opportunities because boys are more likely to be sent to school. They are expected to stay at home - caring for the other siblings, or helping with the household. In some dire cases, they’re driven to work and become targets for exploitation.
Even with the hard lives they live, they are thirsty for knowledge. The girls in our school show the desire to rise above, and aspire to become future leaders in their community…maybe even the country!
With your support, we can bring them better opportunities, help fulfill their dreams, and build a better future for the next generation.Visit our blog for >
