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.

Are to support:

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.
