What is Kadasig?

Kadasig Aid & Development Inc (KAID) is a voluntary group based in Australia which works to assist in the improvement of life for children and families in the Philippines.

Kadasig means strength and unity in the Philippines and strength and unity is exactly what Kadasig Aid & Development is all about.


Kadasig is a voluntary group based in Australia which works to support the lives of children and families in the Philippines. At the same time, the inspiring team of Filipinos in the Kadasig centre in Cebu City and in Barilli work hard to ensure Kadasig’s goal of creating a better future for children is sustained. Both the Australian and Filipino teams work together to empower children and families to create a brighter future through the many programs they facilitate. Kadasig strives to provide a ‘hand up’ not a ‘hand out.’


Kadasig’s committee, based in Australia, is made up of a number of members with a wide range of skills and knowledge. The committee is passionate about changing lives for the better through education and sustainable livelihood programs. All committee members are volunteers, ensuring that all donations are forwarded to the programs in the Philippines.


Thanks to many supporters of the organisation, Kadasig is able to assist children and families in the Philippines through a number of programs, such as educational sponsorship and livelihood programs.
