JLLCF was founded in 1998 by Pastor Chito and Rachel Sanchez. River Springs School provides access to quality education to disadvantaged children in Pasig City. Education is the key to escaping poverty, but 5.6 million is the number of “out of school” children and youth in the Philippines, a rate that has tripled over the last decade.
Pinagbuhatan slum hosts the biggest depressed area in Pasig City and is home to around 105,435 residents. Being also a low-lying area, it is prone to frequent flooding which worsens the already strained circumstances of its disadvantaged people. JLLCF helps increase the number of children who have completed pre-school and elementary education; reaching their goal is to empower children-at-risk in the slums of the Philippines.
