Jigsaw Community Ministries
Jigsaw Community Ministries are set in the heart of depressed, temporary shelter and street communities in Metro Manila and Angeles Pampanga. They are places and spaces of Gods Love, focussed on growing loving and caring relationships and community and bringing opportunities for children and young people living in extreme urban poverty to belong, play, be creative and to develop and grow holistically, physically, mentally, socially and spiritually in Love, Faith, Hope, purpose and wellbeing.
Jigsaws community ministries are founded on the 5 foundational elements of child development, needed for love to grow.*
