The Difference You'll Make

Agape Logo - Sept 2019

Agape Outreach Inc. is at the forefront of making a tangible difference in the lives of those struggling with poverty. With a mission deeply rooted in the belief that everyone deserves a chance to improve their quality of life, Agape tirelessly works to uplift individuals and their families out of dire circumstances. By providing over 1,000 meals weekly and daily support to up to 150 people in need, Agape is a beacon of hope, offering not just food, but a comprehensive support system. This includes life coaching, clothing, blankets, furniture, assistance with medical appointments, court cases, housing applications, and essential referrals. Looking ahead, Agape aims to expand its support by providing housing, furthering its commitment to those in need.

The organisation's efforts extend beyond basic needs, they offer access to showers, laundry facilities, hairdressing services, and basic life skills classes, addressing both immediate and long-term needs. Each hot meal costs just $1.80, and a mere $60 can supply a family with a food hamper, making every dollar donated a step towards restoring dignity and hope.


As Agape Outreach embarks on their Philippines experience, including swimming with whale sharks and visiting local areas, this initiative is not just an adventure—it's a call to action. The funds raised through this challenge will directly impact the lives of those Agape serves, offering them a chance to move forward physically and emotionally. Join us in this life-changing experience and together, we can be the change that gives individuals and families the support they need to rise above their circumstances and embark on a new chapter of their lives.
