Through practical educational strategies our work is giving real hope to young people living in some of the poorest areas of the Philippines.
WELCOME TO AFFLIP
The Australian Foundation for Fostering Learning in the Philippines Inc. (AFFLIP) is a voluntary, non-government, not for profit Foundation based in South Australia. We have gift deductability status through the Overseas Aid Gift Deduction Scheme. Our focus is on supporting the learning of students in poorly resourced schools which have a large number of educationally disadvantaged students. Currently we are working with 15 elementary public schools, with about 21,000 students, in Talomo District, Davao City, Mindanao.

THE OBJECTS OF THE FOUNDATION
the provision of physical facilities and learning resources for identified schools in the Philippines;
the planning and delivery of professional development programs for Filipino teachers and administrators;
the development of greater global awareness for students and teachers in identified schools in the Philippines and in South Australia through mutual exchange;
school communities in their efforts to reduce student hunger, illness, infections and malnourishment in identified Filipino schools; and
students from poor families to attend school and access both formal and extracurricular school programs.
AFFLIP’s organisational structure comprises the following components:
AFFLIP Board is the decision-making body;
Talomo administrators (principals) led by their District Supervisors are based in Davao City and are the key advisory group to the board;
there are two main portfolio groupings - Flagship Programs and Administration and Finance; and
each Flagship Portfolio committee has a corresponding TWG in Talomo with which it jointly plans activities to address agreed priorities.
WHAT WE DO
Each Portfolio committee is headed by a Board member and comprises members of AFFLIP. The work of each committee is guided by the AFFLIP Strategic Plan 2020 - 2022 developed by the Board in association with the Administrators Group in Talomo. There are regular Portfolio committee reports at AFFLIP Board meetings on progress made.
