Reaching Out to Young Moms in the Philippines

Many Filipino families continue to suffer from the harsh consequences of prolonged lockdown in the country. Livelihood are affected, sources of income are unstable, employment opportunities are scarce, and education is inaccessible for a lot of children. Sadly, many of these parents are pushed to their limits and resort to exploitation (of their own children) as a means to earn a living.

But Mary Joy, one of the newest clients of Honor 1000’s Microfinance Program, is determined to care and provide for her two small children through a small store she will put up from her first loan.

We hope that more young moms like Mary Joy will be reached so that they will know that there are still ways to survive this pandemic, without resorting to wrongful practices. Our aim is not just to provide financial support but also help parents understand the damaging effects of sexual exploitation among children.
