VISION – IDEAS – ACTION
“We have created global model programs in the Philippines because the 7,000 islands are an epicenter of the social, economic, and natural challenges faced by all of humanity today.”
- Albert Santoli, AAI President

There is always more to do – every little bit helps.
PLIGHT OF STREET CHILDREN
On the streets of Manila: Feeding and clothing the defenseless
Thousands of small children, many without parents or guardians, fend for themselves on the mean streets of Manila’s ghettos. We cannot turn our back them. Some of the children are chained in cages by the government. Our partners from the Alpha Phi Omega fraternity Alumni are on the streets helping the kids. Asia America Initiative and One World Institute are providing much needed resources. But it is not even close to being enough.
