Education (Scholarships and Books)


Since the inception of the Adopt-A-Scholar Project of the CFO (Commission on Filipinos Overseas) in 1996, Feed the Hungry, Inc. has been supporting indigent but scholastically qualified students all over the Philippines.

Feed the Hungry, Inc.'s Book Program has also been supporting the educational needs of various institutions in the Philippines.

Scholarships

Feed the Hungry, Inc. (FTH) recognizes that education plays an important role in escaping generational poverty. Many families experiencing extreme poverty consider education a luxurury and even those who value it can find it difficult to afford. FTH, in partnership with the CFO (Commission on Filipinos Overseas), provides access to education through scholarships to poor but deserving students at the elementary, high school, collegiate and vocational levels. It is the hope of FTH that the scholarship program will assist students in realizing their dreams and reaching their full potentials.
