For Mountain Communities
To help deprived and underserved mountain communities live healthy, productive, and peaceful lives with sustainable resource development programs that provide basic services, livelihood development, and education.
These communities are post conflict areas. Our strategy is to promote development to sustain peaceWhere are we?
Many communities have suffered the devastating effects of past local armed conflicts.
Education remains an elusive dream. While schools exist, facilities are minimal, books are almost non-existent, and many children attend school undernourished. Most students fortunate enough to reach Grade 5 or 6 often have the literacy of Grade 2 or 3.
Slash and burn agriculture and illegal mining have left many communities with few benefits and many negative environmental and social impactsWhy focus on our Communities?
HUNGER by helping households establish home vegetable garden
IGNORANCE by providing deserving students access college education
COMMON DISEASES by making basic health services accessible to marginalized communities
We adopt as a valid cause individuals and communities outside of our focus areas who require urgent action from usWhat are our programs designed to do?
An agricultural technology, livelihood education program for family members to address food security concerns. It aims to establish a “food garden” for every family.
send young people to a 2-year vocational or 4-year college scholarship program
support a medical mission in a remote community

Food Always In The Home (FAITH)
The Napindan Elementary School in Taguig has been badly affected by typhoon Ondoy and extreme flooding.
The students come from an impoverished community, many of their homes have suffered serious flooding and many students have lost most of their belongings, including their school supplies.
Since the typhoon and flooding, only a few students have been returning to school.
The 200 school children is a small portion of the 1,741 Napindan Elementary students and there are many schools in need in the Manila area.
There are damaged schools in Pasig City, Quezon City, Malabon-Navotas, Manila, Mandaluyong and Taguig City. More work still needs to be done.
The MTF is receiving more donations and targeting more students and schools and Your Help Is Needed.
