WE CHASE IMPACT.

ARK IS BORN + BRED

IN THE COUNTRYSIDE

Over 80% of the ARK volunteer core is made up of parents, teachers and farmers who live in rural areas.

We live and breathe rural poverty.

SO HERE'S THE REAL SCORE

Most of the poor are in rural areas.

They lack the education or income to live better.

They farm to survive. 

But they barely get to feed their kids.

The kids stay at home then go hungry in school

On bad days, they end up working on the fields with their parents to help put food on the table

THE NUMBERS THAT MATTER

75%

1 out of  4

1 out of  4

THE CURRENT TALLY?

over 13.4 million poor kids in the Philippines

as many as 1.5 million go on a whole day without eating

BUT HOW TO SOLVE SUCH A CYCLE?

by breaking the mold.

AND HOW EXACTLY DO YOU DO THAT?

make sure it works.

gather a badass team.

build a model that solves this problem forever

kids are forced to skip meals

our mantra (and why our program works):

YOU WORK, WE WORK.

YOU INVEST, WE INVEST.

We don’t do hand outs.  

We want our partner communities to succeed. 


Our partner communities are so innovative, have amazing talents, brilliant ideas and hustle like no other (who else can live under $3 a day). They just need people to believe and invest in them.
