Backgrounder- Philippines-Luxembourg Society asbl


Philippines-Luxembourg Society asbl was founded in 1986 as a non-profit organization with the aim to promote friendship and cultural ties between the peoples of the Philippines and Luxembourg and to manage charity projects in favour of the less privileged in the Philippines. The initial project aimed to provide schooling for children from a disadvantaged social a disadvantaged social background and has supported more than a hundred students over the past 26 years.

The PLS is particularly aware of the need for adequate local infrastructure, and our projects aim to assist the wider community, where necessary creating the appropriate infrastructure in schools or villages.

PLS has also funded the reconstruction of a new roof for the Aklan Hospital in Caticlan. With PLS’s financial aid, members of the PLS Committee inaugurated the newly constructed building of a Day Care School in Antique. Many school toilets and libraries were built and computers were also donated to a school in the Northern part of the Philippines. PLS gave a donation to the Special Education (SPED)programs to help children with educational disabilities.

On several occasions, the PLS has also organized emergency humanitarian support in the wake of natural disasters to local communities in need.
