As of 2016, UNICEF has reported that 1 out of 7, or roughly 5.1 million Filipino children are living with disabilities.

And with the lack of understanding and resources available to them, these kids suffer from unmet health needs and societal stigma which ends up limiting their development and opportunities, making them feel isolated and misunderstood.

Every child brings something unique and special into the world. JCI Manila has long been celebrating this, recognizing the role each child plays in our nation’s future through its annual flagship and legacy project, Handog Lingap.


The Event

Current Lineup of Activities:
  • Swimming Classes to give the children the interactive physical activity integral to their development.
  • Disaster Preparedness Workshop which will equip caregivers and kids with knowledge on how to save their lives in different high-stress scenarios.
  • Transition Programs Forum to start the dialogue on how best to assist the transition of children from SPED schools to the workplace.

We will be inviting celebrities, dignitaries and other community leaders to grace the occasion. Media partners will also be invited to help us in spreading awareness to this cause.


The Beneficiaries

Over 800 indigent children with special education needs and their teachers from Manila public schools under the Department of Education’s Special Education (SPED) Program.


The Goal

Instead of treating them differently, we want to give these children an inclusive and compassionate environment, equipping them with important life skills that can improve their lives, giving them the chance and support they need to succeed. Disabilities are just a mismatch between one’s abilities and their environment.


Why We Are Crowdfunding

We believe it takes a village to raise a child.

To celebrate a decade of bringing joy to the lives of our kids, we want to go bigger and deeper, reaching more beneficiaries and inspiring positive impact that lasts a lifetime.

Aside from the funds for the event, we also want spread awareness for our cause, and build a solid community that supports the well-being of indigent children with special education needs.
And so along with our partners, the Department of Education (DepEd), Bert Lozada Swim School, Dare to Care, and Golden Heart Manila, we invite everyone to join our community in making the world a bit more special for these dear kids.
