Charity description

ASCT logo
“Children of the Dump is the operating name of the Asian Students Christian Trust (ASCT) which was founded in 1975 to help extremely poor children in the Philippines. The charity is registered in England.”

Children of the Dump has worked in the Philippines since 1975, providing loving care, family support and education to hundreds of deprived children, many living in extreme poverty on the Payatas rubbish dump in Metro Manila. We currently have over 300 children in our care, some of whom have been abused, abandoned or neglected. Children of the Dump offers these children the chance to escape the cycle of poverty through education.Since our work started, we have watched the children we support grow and develop into responsible adults. We have seen them graduate from high school and college to join the world of work. Many of our students aspire to become teachers, social workers, nurses and policemen and some achieve this. We are proud of all of them. Children of the Dump prides itself in being a personal, friendly charity, which is small enough to know many of our supporters personally and makes sure over 80 pence of every pound is used directly for the children .

Charity No: 272328
