Sponsoring means allowing a child or a student of a family or group in difficulty to go through his school education under the best conditions. Going to school is the best access route to the skills, which will allow the children, and their families, to improve or even transform their life condition.

Alouette's action
Today, Alouette sponsors about 400 Filipino children in five regions: Manila, Quezon Province, Pangasinan, Baguio City and Mountain Province. These regions are all on the same route on the Island of Luzon, allowing us to keep track easily.

Securing an education
During primary school and high school, the budget stays the same and only one sponsor is necessary. However, in college the fees vary and are higher, joint sponsorship is then needed. Management also becomes more difficult, in Europe and in Manila. The cost of this education usually covers registration and exam fees (often very expensive), school material, uniforms, shoes and mail. It may also include eventual transportation costs and food. For college students (college starts at 16 in the Philippines), it will eventually englobe study travel, diplomas, exam preparation.

Contracts with the Filipino families
In return we ask of the Filipino families to be responsible, to honor their contracts with the foundation which involve meetings and action programs. The families that do not fulfill their contract will loose the sponsorship.

In order to avoid any kind of assistance, no direct money is given. It is a choice we have made to ensure that the sums collected be used for the children. We thought this to be necessary to make the sponsorship totally useful for the child and safe for the donor.

Management
An educational team, made up of qualified social workers, based in Manila, manages each sponsorship separately.

We advise sponsors to start supporting a student and to then continue on with a child the age of their own. This will allow both children to benefit from a penpal. Correspondence is entirely personalized.

Cost

  • Annual fee: € 25 minimum
  • Sponsorship: € 25 per month as a suggested amount
Automatic bank transfers are preferred.

Frequently asked questions on the sponsorings and the schooling of the children
Sponsors, future or current question us about the sponsorings and the schooling in the Philippines.

  • How are the children being sponsored chosen ? What are the criteria ?
  • How many children are on a waiting list at the moment ?
  • What is a typical day at school like for a child at primary school ?
  • How many completed their studies ?
  • Is it possible to know what happened afterwards, how many now have a job ?
  • What do the families have to do at AFPI once their child has been selected ?

Mail
The letters you will receive from the sponsored student will always go through the foundation first. This avoids direct request for money, since the foundation would have no control over the way it is spent.

Your own messages to your sponsored child are to be addressed, preferably in English, to:

Alouette Foundation of the Philippines Inc
c/o name and surname of sponsored child
755E Cornejo Street
Malibay, Pasay City 1300
Philippines

You can also send them e-mails to the following address:

e-mail : alouettephilippines@yahoo.com

Visiting
If you wish to visit your sponsored child, please call or email us : alouettephilippines@yahoo.com

CAUTION!
Never put any cash money directly in an enveloppe. Every shipment of money or gift (Christmas, birthday) will come through our intermediary. Indeed, for safety, profit and taste reasons, it is better to let the Filipino staff buy the presents.

ENGAGEMENT
A sponsorship program is meant to last over a few years, especially when a child is involved. If you must stop your action, you must let us know at least 3 months in advance in order to allow us to find a new sponsor to take over.

WARNING: DUE TO REASONS INVOLVING THE FAMILY OF THE SPONSORED CHILD (MOVING - NON OBSERVATION OF THE CONTRACT - OTHER) WE MAY NEED TO INTRODUCE YOU TO A NEW SPONSORED CHILD. IN THIS CASE YOU WILL BE NOTIFIED AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE FOR THE REASON OF THIS CHANGE.

For any additional information, please contact Association Alouette :

by mail : alouettefrance@free.fr
or by phone : (+33) 7 67 05 89 22

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SOLIDARITY
