I am Joshua B. Belarmino and I belong to a family of 5 children. My mother is a Public School Teacher while my father is a part time Professor in a Catholic University. My brother is a graduating student taking up Electrical Engineering and my sister is a grade eight student. I have two brothers that are currently working but their salary is still not enough to help us study. I attended college on 2014 but unfortunately, my family faced trials financially and I had to stop my studies for my brother to continue his course. I became frustrated that time because I also wanted to study.

Until I went to San Miguel, Bulacan to be a missionary. I thank God because he guided me to the path that will help me continue my studies. GreenEarth helped me to bring back my enthusiasm in studying. The organization not just helped me and my family to be able to have the opportunity for me to study again but also, GreenEarth molded me to be a good person. I always feel that we are a family that can reach each other. I am so blessed that the Lord helped me to have GreenEarth and to be able to have the opportunity to study again in a school that anyone can dream for.

I am Jerouszel Bermudez, a post-college scholar of GreenEarth Heritage Foundation. I graduated from the Philippines' University of the East with a bachelor's degree in Business.

I am the second out of 4 girls. My mother is a rags maker and my father is a tricycle driver. Their average monthly income is only 100 US dollars. Back in 2010, my mother heard of a foundation called GreenEarth Heritage Foundation. Aside from its livelihood programs, what enticed us to come is their scholarship assistance program for children of farmers and forest restorers. Studying in public school is free but ancillary costs are not like school uniforms, projects, etc. It is an everyday struggle to make ends meet.

After a few months, all four of us sisters were eventually got sponsors. One time, one of the generous partners of GreenEarth had their Treeplanting activity. The managing director was impressed and amazed at how God works in the lives of the people. And so, our Executive Director asked him if he could give a college scholarship to one GreenEarth kid. Fortunately, I was selected to receive this enormous blessing!

For more than 5 years now, my parents have been part of the livelihood program in organic agriculture. My siblings are also part of the literacy program wherein they are being taught English and computer literacy, songs, and Bible-based teachings.

Behind everyone's success are people who have helped. GreenEarth has helped me spread my wings to fly. Appreciating nature, respecting others, and having a personal relationship with the Lord are but a few great things that GreenEarth has taught me.

GreenEarth is my family. We may not be related by blood but God has bound us together with a chord that cannot be broken.

My life has changed because of GreenEarth Heritage Foundation! I am the FIRST college graduate of my family. I am forever grateful for what they have done.

God bless.

"I'm Jay-r A. Tonogbanua, 32 years old. I was born in Surallah, South Cotabato, in Southern Philippines. I am fourth among five siblings.

Before, I had a difficult time in college and eventually dropped out. I didn't have the motivation for school, and especially since I also needed to work on the side. I used to work for different companies as a contractual worker. When I started my life as a farmer in GreenEarth Heritage Foundation Inc., I matured spiritually because of their Holistic Christian Community and they helped me know Jesus and what it truly means to live a Christian way of life.

I am currently enrolled at De La Salle Araneta University (Agrivet Science Institue) as a BS in Agriculture student. It is thanks to GreenEarth Heritage Foundation Inc. that I was given an opportunity and the motivation to go back to school for a better future. They helped me and others that needed help to get life-changing scholarships. Through this I felt the Grace of God for me and my fellow scholars, and the ever-growing GreenEarth family that we now belong to. I believe that GreenEarth Heritage Foundation Inc. deserves the recognition of Top-Rated from Great Non-Profits because of how they help all the members in their community."

My name is Mark Angelo Belga Baylon. Before I heard about GreenEarth, I could only wonder how I can achieve my dream of going to college. I know the capabilities of my parents to support me-----My father is a farmer and my mother is a vendor of food and i have still a sister studying in highschool.

But now things changed because of GreenEarth Heritage Foundation scholarship assistance program, God has shown Himself mighty.!

I was accepted at the Grade 12 level at De La Salle-Araneta University that has put me in a straight track to the College of Agriculture. What a blessing I received.

I am forever grateful for what the Lord has done through Greenearth.

I am Gerald S. Lazaro, a current college scholar of GreenEarth
Heritage Foundation taking up BS Finance in a university in the
Philippines.

I belong to a family of 7 who earns an average income of less than
100,000 pesos (2000 USD) per year. My father is truck driver and my
mother is a former health worker.

I became a part of the foundation last 2012 after being invited by my
best friend who happened to be one of their scholars. At first, I was
hesitant because I have to cross a bridgeless river and an unpaved
road just to get there but I still decided to go to.

GreenEarth helped me to develop and hone my skills by attending its
Literacy Program. I finished high school as Salutatorian, receiving
more than thirty (30) medallions and few recognition. It wouldn't be
possible without GreenEarth helping me.

I thought when I finished high school with honors things will be
smooth but then I realized that the problems will just begin to pop
up. Due to financial constraints, my parents would like me to defer
from going to college and just work for a while. It was a
heartbreaking moment for me.

In this very deep situation, GreenEarth reminded me of its mantra--"TO
LIVE, HOPE and DREAM." With that, GreenEarth became the answer to my
prayers. The foundation helped me to search for reputable universities
and compete for scholarships.

It is through GreenEarth that I am now studying in a good university
for free and running with Latin honors.

My story is just one of the stories that make GreenEarth deserve the
top-rated recognition.

My name is Renz Hernandez and I belong to a family of 6 children.  I lost my father at the age of 5. My mother, the breadwinner of our family, is now an Organic Farmer and Organic Tea Processor at GreenEarth Heritage Foundation.  Despite the hardships of my personal life, I am humbled by the grace of the Almighty God and I was able to attend college in 2013 at the University of the East- Manila. Because of GreenEarth’s holistic mission, which they are actively assisting farmers’ children  to find scholarship opportunities through various donors. I am fortunate to have garnered a full tuition scholarship from Megaworld Foundation after passing their exam, along with private donors of GreenEarth who generously sponsored me for my living expenses and other basic necessities. I am now in 5th year taking up Accountancy and I know that it is still a long journey ahead and I have my complete trust in the Lord that He will carry me through this in every way.
 
If I may share, OPENING OUR MINDS and LOOKING HEAVENWARD IS GREENEARTH’s legacy in my life! GreenEarth is NOT an organization that just tells you what to do.  They HOLD OUR HAND and helps us actively each and every day---from our choices of schools, decision-making regarding our course, tapping donor support and even praying with us and for us.  We are all family at GreenEarth!  We stand together through thick or thin. GreenEarth has also woken me up to the importance of LOVE FOR THE ENIVIRONMENT.  Every seed, every tree matters to give us oxygen, nurture soil health, prevent landslides, flooding etc. We have a big role to play as citizens of this country. Our families are all part of this movement of environmental restoration. Each person takes part in planting trees and caring for them. Our families have now found life and sustainable livelihood at GreenEarth.
 
I will forever be grateful to this organization for loving us like their own family and really caring to transform land and transform our lives.

I am Louie John Diaz, the first college graduate of GreenEarth Heritage Foundation.


My father, Tony Diaz, joined the foundation when it started 8 years ago . He serves as the lead driver, organic farmer and farm foreman. Because he became a beneficiary , I was granted a full tuition college scholarship by the foundation . I graduated with a degree in Business, major in Operations Management at the University of St. La Salle in the Philippines in 2015.

Right after graduation, the foundation has helped me look for a job where I am currently employed.


I do not think I would be where I am today if it's not for GreenEarth whom God has used to bless me and my family enormously. The foundation molded us holistically. It taught us values that I, personally, will forever treasure. Apart from these, GreenEarth has also ignite the spirit of environmentalism in each one of us. Most importantly, GreenEarth did not only give us a chance to alleviate our poverty through its scholarships and livelihood programs. It did inspire us to dream, hope and live to glorify our God.

GreenEarth is my family, my support. I am sharing this story - my story because I sincerely believe that the cause that helped me deserves to be recognized as a top-rated non profit foundation.

My name is Richard Hernandez, 26 years old. I was born and raised at the foothills of Sierra Madre Mountains in San Miguel , Bulacan. My father died when I was only 11 years old, leaving my mother with 6 children to raise by herself. I was the eldest and wanted to help my mother take care of my younger siblings as soon as I could. I graduated from High School in 2008 and decided not to continue college to give way to my younger brothers who were still studying. I went to Manila to live with my aunt and take away one mouth to feed for our mother. I took technical classes in TESDA to improve my chances of finding work. I really wanted to help my mother and my younger siblings finish their education.
By Grace of God, GreenEarth came to our province and caused a big change in my life.Through their help, my family and I learned how to grow our own healthy food and was given a livelihood in farming. My mother is now an organic farmer for GreenEarth and we know that they really give us fair price in in return for our harvests. They even taught us how to save and account for our expenses. I used to also be an organic farmer and help my mother in taking care of our crops, but because of GreenEarth, I am now persuing my college education in De La Salle Araneta University ( Agrivet Sciences Institute). My younger brother and I are currently in college because of scholarships that GreenEarth Family helped us win, and my two youngest sisters are receiving free education in GreenEarth's homeschool program. I really thank God for using GreenEarth as a channel of blessing to my family. Praise God I am finally finishing my education, and at good school. May the Lord guide me all the way through.

I haven't been using Moringa tea long enough to speak of its health benefits, but it is a very nice relaxing tea and I personally enjoy its taste. It is neither bitter nor astringent, similar to some fine Japanese green teas. I love the fact that it is antioxidant and that it helps balance blood sugar levels. Thank you for introducing it to me!

I came to know GreenEarth through the product they sell - moringa tea. It is a health-giving tea and is grown sustainably by this foundation. The foundation has a solid reputation for its ethical and green-friendly business practices and processes and supply chains. The owners themselves are fully committed to provide clients with a quality product and treating their employees, workers and farmers with respect and fairness, empowering them every step of the way. I highly recommend GreenEarth for the work that they do and the high-quality of their products and especially their treatment of workers and service to their clients.

My name is Rom Blanco, the 7th out of 9 sons of a rice and vegetable farmer at the foothills of the longest mountain range in the Philippines, the Sierra Madre Mountains in San Miguel, Bulacan.

In 2011, I became one of the farmers’ children benefiting from the programs of GreenEarth Heritage Foundation.

I would walk two hours each way on unpaved roads and slopey terrains and brave a bridgeless river in order to
attend GreenEarth’s programs--always on an empty stomach.

Because of the Foundation's educational initiatives, I became the first farmer’s child to win the International School Manila(ISM) scholarship in its 92-year history in 2012.

No triumph without trials, no success without struggles. I went through
it all. After 5 years, by GOD’s amazing grace, I finally graduated from
high school at ISM on May 26, 2017!

Despite graduating from ISM, I am still a poor farmer’s child who can only go to college through a scholarship.
GOD has declared that his plans are to prosper us and not to harm us; plans to give us hope and a future.

I hinged my hope on who GOD is--The GOD who brought me to ISM
is the same GOD who can take me to any college of His choice.

And so my GreenEarth family and I prayed and fasted many times for
my future, post-ISM. We put legs on our prayers by diligently searching
and inquiring with various colleges and universities in the US who give
full-ride scholarships to international indigent students.

I studied like I have never studied before for the US college admission tests. It was extremely tough.

When the results of all my college applications came out a few months
ago, I received rejection after rejection after rejection from the various colleges I applied to, leaving only four to hear back from. It was devastating.

From the human point of view and probability, it was almost Impossible to believe that the remaining four colleges would accept me, given the fact that they were more prestigious than the colleges that rejected me.

All the more, we at GreenEarth fasted and prayed. I declared God’s word-- “Lord, apart from you, I can do nothing. NOTHING is impossible with you! “. You said that when you ask, we should NOT doubt.

I prayed for a sign. “Lord, if it is your will for me to study in the United States of America, please make it crystal clear. Give me just ONE full-ride scholarship.

The LORD prevailed! He displayed His power! He unleashed His blessings on the very last day. I only asked for one scholarship but He gave me FOUR full-ride scholarships--to Dartmouth, Harvard, New York University Abu Dhabi and Wesleyan. I chose Harvard for all that it represents.

Faith, indeed, is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen!

I praise and thank God for using GreenEarth Heritage Foundation so mightily so that I, a poor farmer’s child, may be lifted out of a life
of hopelessness and despair to a life of unspeakable possibilities.

The Green Earth Moringa Dried Loose Leaf Tea is the best brand for me. After comparing Green Earth moringa tea with other brands, I found it of premium quality. It is sealed with freshness guaranteed. Its certifications signify the integrity of its processing standards.


I am a moringa miracle as evidenced by my normal organs, left unscathed by the ravages of 6 chemotherapy. I started drinking moringa one week before my chemotherapy in November 2012.

To this day, I drink one liter of moringa tea as my natural source of energy, as a recovering cancer patient after surviving stage 4 multiple myeloma. I believe that the side effects that hit me, considerably mild as assessed by my doctors compared to the typical cancer-stricken patient were still significant and yet, it all disappeared faster than expected. My hair grew back so fast. My bones and muscles continue to improve faster than my other fellow patients-friends. I was amazed and so I researched and found that Moringa tea has all the 9 essential amino acids that contribute to my physical development.

The wonderful benefits of the Green Earth moringa tea based in its quality production of the tea but also its tremendous commitment to building a community of hope, wellness and investing in the future of rural children through the sale of its moringa and other produce.

I believe in Green Earth Heritage Foundation. I love its tea. I am committed to its causes so I personally promote this tea.
