Last month, MicroMissions launched Back to School: A MicroMissions Fundraiser to prepare scholars for the start of the school year. The support we received from MicroSourcing employees was immense and we are truly grateful for your kindness. Together, we managed to raise P157, 410 from 1,265 employee donors.
MicroMissions matched your donations to fund college education of 10 Payatas Orione Foundation Scholars. Last June 16, MicroMissions turned over a P150K check to Payatas Orione Foundation Program Director Michelle Balce and volunteer Rachele Ranin. MicroSourcing wishes the 10 college scholars a successful school year.

MicroSourcing strongly believes that by tackling lack of access to education amongst the poor, we are addressing one of the root causes of poverty amongst the Filipino people. Education is important in securing decent work that pays minimum wage, to ultimately give individuals the power and mobility to make honorable decisions that affect their lives. For this reason, MicroSourcing invests in education of Filipino children from elementary to college level because we recognize that the private sector has the capacity to help fill this gap.
We can help you understand the possibilities. Reach out to us today.
