Reviews for Lingap Childrens Foundation

Rating: 5 stars  

John Drake and the Lingap Center are the ultimate, highly-leveraged, grass roots organization. Why is it highly leveraged? Because John and his board members pay all administrative costs for fund raising. Every dollar collected goes to the Center in Toledo City, Phillipines. Why is it the ultimate grass roots program? Because it's private donations that fund the Center. There's no government involvement, other than the placement of Peace Corps volunteers. Yes, John was solicited by the Peace Corps to see whether he'd accept a volunteer. Usually, it's the other way around. But, Lingap Center has a reputation in the international community as a game-changing, terrifically effective program. John Drake is a tremendous force for good, and is truly a visionary.

The Lingap Center uses all its donations to aid the children at their center in the Phillipines. I like knowing that all I contribute goes to support the center. I especially like the fact that my donation is not used to send requests to me further donations. John has a great program set up to make donating convenient.

The Lingap center has served as a beacon of hope for the neglected and abused children in the Philippines. It has become the standard by which other charity institutions are modeled. I thank John D, for his generous and and unrelenting commitment to improve the lot of these children. He inspires all of us.

I think it is fabulous that John is making a difference in so many children's lives. He started to help before he retired and now that he is retired he still continues to help those less fortunate. I can only imagine what would have happened to the many children John helps today if he was not dedicated to this cause. May god bless him for his work.

Several years ago I became aware of the Lingap Center and we have supported it ever since. John D. is an amazing man who is an inspiration to us all. Even though the part I play in supporting the Lingap Center is small, I am very proud to support it and especially knowing that 100% of what I give goes towards the center to help children in great need. Now that my own children are a bit older and can understand what the Lingap Center does - we have made it a Christmas tradition to give money to the center as part of our Christmas gifts. My children enjoy seeing pictures of the Lingap children and reading the Stories of how the center has helped them.

When we first became aquainted with the Lingap Children's Foundation and John Drake, we was awed by the opportunities they were providing to the children of the Phillipines. They were not just offering these children food and a chance to be educated; they were saving lives! Not only was this organization making a monumental difference to children, John Drake was doing all this as a volunteer, determined that all funds coming in to the foundation go to help the children. All of this was more than enough to convince my husband and I that we wanted to be a part of Lingap's mission. When I had the opportunity last year to hear two children who were beneficiaries of Lingap talk at the school I teach at, I saw first hand the tremendous work this foundation is doing to make a difference for children who would otherwise never have the chance to learn, much less survive in many instances! God bless Lingap Foundation, all the children and volunteers, and John Drake!

My husband and I have supported The Lingap Childrens Foundation for a few years now and we believe it a superior organization helping children that really need it. My favorite thing is that the money goes directly to the children. The volunteers are just that and are not paid! Thank you John Drake for a wonderful children's organization. I feel honored to be a part of this foundation.

The Lingap Foundation headed up by John Drake has helped so many needed children at the orphanage. He works endlessly to help them and has built them a school where they can be educated and live safely. He is a very generous person with his time and money as no administrative costs are taken from any donations to the foundation. We will continue to suppport him in any way that we can.
