Ending Poverty, Permanently
The Muravah Foundation was started with the vision of helping bring rural communities in the Philippines out of poverty for good. Rather than just providing financial aid to these communities, we provide the resources and support to help create deep-rooted, sustainable, generational change.
We are currently operating in the farming communities surrounding Mt Mayon, in the Bicol region of the Philippines. We’ve been here on the ground for over 10 years. Many people from rural communities move to the city in search of opportunity, but often end up living in city slums. We believe by supporting farmers and helping them increase their yields they will stay in their local community. In addition, by building long term profitable enterprises people will return from the cities for a better life.
We are committed, focused and here for the long haul.
How We Help
A Message From Our Founder
We ensure that 100% of all donations are invested straight into the communities.
All of the Foundation’s paid administrative staff are from the communities themselves, giving them permanent employment often for the first time in their lives. The Board of Directors that oversees the Foundation receives no remuneration at all for their work.
The Muravah Foundation is fully endorsed by the Rotary Australia Overseas Aid Fund (Managed by RAWCS) and has Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) registration. This means we are listed as a Charitable Fund and we can accept tax deductible donations from individuals or organisations.
