Fishermen of Christ Learning Centers

Kids in Philippines

In what is called the Bicol area of the Philippines Deaf Action/ DMI owns and runs two schools for the deaf which incorporate Kindergarten through to College level. Both schools are situated at the foot of the Mayon Volcano, an active volcano which from time to time covers the school in ash during periodic eruptions. The schools are also in a typhoon belt and have been severely damaged. The main administration building has recently been rebuilt following destruction by a typhoon.

The schools raise their own rice and vegetables as well as sporting a rice mill, pig business and rambutan and calamansi orchards. Known as Fishermen of Christ Learning Centers the schools cater for about 140 deaf children and young people. Most students are from surrounding barrios or villages and some from distant islands too. The school is residential.

Your sponsorship of these schools is greatly sought after.
