Hope Through Education
Hope Through Education
We believe providing an education is the key to breaking poverty's vicious cycle. Without education, children grow up illiterate and spend their lives working menial jobs, if they can get jobs at all. In Third World and Developing countries, a little money can go a long ways to providing quality education. Love In Action is currently sponsoring children and building schools in the Philippines and Pakistan. It only costs, on average, $10,000 to build a school, $100 per month for teachers and $200 per month for food for the children.
These schools and scholarships provide education for children who have no hope of receiving an education. The schools are also used for churches, so the Gospel of Jesus Christ is proclaimed, not only to the students, but to their families as well.
Please help us by praying and giving financially. When you give, you help change the course of history for these children, families and impoverished countries. Please send your tax-deductible donation to: Love In Action, P.O. Box 85, Dothan, AL 36302, and write "Hope Through Education" in the memo section of your check.

They are waiting for us. Will we help?
We successfully built our first school in the Philippines in Punta, Zamboanga del Norte, on the island of Mindanao. The school is pictured to the left. They called it "Tuck Everlasting School," and it is among the top 5 schools in that district. We praise God for all He is doing through the school in Punta. The school has spread and opened branches in other areas. The same has happened with a school we support in Sindangan, Zamboanga del Norte.
In the Philippines, Love In Action focuses primarily on the island of Mindanao. It's the most impoverished island in the Philippines. More than 60 percent of children do not complete at least secondary education, compared to only 10-14 percent in the U.S.
We built our first school in Pakistan. We will not say exactly where it is due to safety concerns. Children receive an education who previously had no chance at an education. They have a safe place to enjoy nutritious meals each day. It also provides a safe haven for Christians to enjoy church services, in which they must meet in secret.
Schools are badly needed in Pakistan as 50 percent of school-age children cannot read and write. Only 23 percent of children under the age of 16 attend secondary school. A study by The Lotus Project found that almost one-third of Pakistanis live in extreme educational poverty - having received less than two years of education.
