The Wild Orchid Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization based out of Los Angeles, California in coordination with partnerships in the Philippines. Our outreach is comprised of volunteers and patrons in joint effort to provide underprivileged Filipino communities with the tools to build a flourishing and sustainable future with dreams to realize.
Mission & approach
Based on our conviction that all individuals deserve a life of education, opportunity and well being, The Wild Orchid Foundation is dedicated to breaking the cycle of poverty in Cebu, Philippines through arts and education. The Wild Orchid Foundation offers services to empower impoverished Filipinos, enabling them to overcome their circumstantial and environmental challenges. We strive to assist all disadvantaged members of our community:
- children, parents, youths
- the incarcerated
- the elderly
- the sick and the abandoned
The organization’s name “Wild Orchid” was inspired by the wild orchids that grow throughout The Philippines and symbolize the growth and potential of each and every Filipino, in their struggle to achieve self sufficiency and empowerment. It is our dream that every individual, like wild orchids, will multiply in effort and spread collectively, giving back to their own communities to cultivate a future of opportunity and abundance. The Wild Orchid Foundation works to impact these communities as well as others, who have a calling to join our efforts in this divine and universal endeavor.
