Funding for students, faculty, and young professionals to serve
The Jeffersonville Rotary Club has raised approximately $5,000 this year, which includes the $1,000 matching monies paid by the club, to help support the Lingap Center in the Philippines!
While serving as a senior executive of an international energy company, John Drake started traveling to the Philippines. Not far from the white sand beaches and luxurious hotels, he saw orphans and abandoned children living on the dangerous streets. He saw kids scavenging through garbage, begging for food and forced to become sex workers just to survive. In response, John established The Lingap Children’s Foundation—a U.S.-based tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization that provides funding for projects to help children in the Philippines. The first goal was to raise money to build The Lingap Center (translated as “crisis or care center”) where street children and orphans could rebuild their lives. The new building was opened and dedicated in March of 2006. For more information visit their web site at
