A Sense of Hope

“I first visited the Philippines when I was sixteen and was completely culture shocked by the poverty and destitution. It was painful seeing so much poverty and thinking there was nothing I can do to help. The BCP trip changed this feeling of helplessness by offering the opportunity to create better lives for these poor families by building houses in a new, clean community. It instilled a sense of hope and pride in me that was made possible through Enspire Foundation.”

Making The Dream A Reality

A few years ago, the plight of the children from the Navotas shanty town caught the eye of a philanthropist associated with the well-established Pag-aalay Ng Puso Foundation (PPF) – a non-governmental organization in the Philippines and an affiliate of Enspire Foundation. For over 20 years, PPF employees and volunteers have been living and working in Navotas, helping to create a community in the shanty town.
During a short trip to a PPF school residence for Dumagat indigenous children in Norzagary, Bulacan, this philanthropist saw the 20,000 sq. metre property next to the residence and thought it would be ideal for a housing cooperative community project for the families living in Bagong Silang, Navotas City. With the help of Enspire, the dream became a reality.


Do you have an open mind and a desire to explore a different culture? Are you ready for a life-changing experience? Enspire’s Shared Experience Program provides opportunity for compassionate individuals to travel to less developed countries to help build a new community. Since 2006, Enspire has built a library and a new community in Bulacan, Philippines to aid in the relocation of slum-dwellers from the shanty town of Navotas City.
