It started with three friends on separate trips to the Philippines. While waiting at the terminal for their separate flights, Alden Viado, Jeremiah and Jonas Guevara saw an empty shopfront and an idea to start a business. With the same business aspirations, they also realised they had the same passion to help give back to the less fortunate people in the Philippines and the two purposes were formed.

According to the trio, “Our ‘Juan’ goal is helping out underprivileged communities and organisations of all cultures, religions, beliefs, and views.”

The vision to change people’s lives

The group’s motto is “Give back to the ones in need,” regardless of denomination. Team Juan consists of five team members who come from Christ-centered Ministry and they believe that they should be mindful and respectful of each person, community and organisational beliefs, hoping that they, too would earn the same acceptance. 

The group is steadfast in its mission – whether by providing a source of livelihood to family members to acquire for them a stable income, helping the education system to inspire the children to complete their studies or providing medical attention to people who require it the most.

Project Anajawan

Currently, Project Juan is supporting a remote island community off Siargao called Anajawan Island. Anajawan is located an hour away by boat. It is a part of General Luna Municipality, Siargao but its isolation plays a big role in the quality of living of its inhabitants. A community of approximately 500 people, all power is from generators shared among the 120 households including the school, church, medical centre, and municipal building. Their livelihood is based on fishing. 

Since June 2019, Team Juan has pledged to send donation boxes out every quarter, out of its members’ own pockets. With items such as new and second-hand clothes, medicines, new and pre-loved toys, school supplies and canned goods.

The group takes pride in its completed projects and has planned on other programs over the new few years. These include medical missions, educational programs, livelihood program assessments, clean water system and opening up a library for the children in 2020. These programs and projects would have not been possible without the great help of the local Municipality and also other NGOs and organisations who have aided and collaborated to assist in giving Anajawan a better future.

Sabado Kids

Sabado Kids is a family-owned ministry that started three years ago. Kids from United Subdivision San Pedro, Laguna are gathered every Saturday afternoon in the family’s compound to have fun and teach the word of God. Sabado Kids’ vision is to share God’s word with children and help them walk their way towards what God has in store for them. Through God’s faithfulness, the group endeavours to raise leaders who will continue to spread the word of God. 

Project Juan’s part in helping Sabado Kids involves assisting in the feeding program of the children every Saturday. As long as this program continues to give back to children and enrich their lives spiritually, physically and mentally, Project Juan will continue to support the legacy of the Sabado Kids Program.

If you wish to contribute clothing, toys, medical supplies, educational supplies, monetary donations or volunteer, you can send a message through the group’s social media platforms.
