Educate Bohol, Inc, is a US-based 501(c)(3) faith-based public charity.
No child should be a slave. Our desire is to eliminate the causes of human trafficking. While we can’t do much about the massive systemic poverty which is pervasive in the Philippines, we can address inadequate education and marginalization among children.
We are not a large organization. Our team is made up of volunteers both in the USA and in the Philippines. We operate solely from donations by caring people, responsive businesses, and mission-minded churches. We receive no funds or support from government agencies.
Taking on trafficking prevention is a huge undertaking. While supplying a child with a uniform and backpack of school supplies seems simple, the sheer volume of children in need is mind-boggling. So is the issue of child trafficking. Thousands upon thousands of children are trafficked each year in the Philippines, and that is simply unacceptable.
