Greetings to all our friends!

New Hope to Asia Christian Foundation, Inc., was initially established by Canadian missionaries Frank and Liz Amantea. After three years, they had to go back to Canada and the leadership was turned over to a Filipino pastor, Ding Teodoro and his wife, Mona.

Since 1999, New Hope To Asia Christian Foundation, Inc. has been reaching out to street children of Cainta. It started with a special Christmas party where children mostly ages 3 to 12 years old, came for the occasion. These are the children that beg for money or food on the streets, or sell cigarettes and newspapers, or collect plastics and metals to sell at junk shops. Special treats and luscious meal were given to each child.

A weekly Saturday meeting called “Superkids Bible Club” was decided to provide a follow-up to the attendees of the Christmas Party. At present, 600 street children are coming regularly to the meeting where a hot nutritious lunch is served and basic Biblical principles and values are taught.

Out of this ministry, former drug addicts, thieves, and derelicts have become Christians, finished college and are now working. Youth who have been out-of-school are brought back to school and are being supported financially with their expenses covered through college graduation.

This burden has encouraged New Hope To Asia Christian Foundation, Inc. to reach out to the poor of Cainta by providing finances to children who are ready for formal education. Parents of these children are mostly unemployed or would accept odd-jobs to earn a living and are unable to financially support the children's education.

In June 2007, Preschool was opened and took in 17 children from the Superkids Bible Club ages 6 to 9 years old. Basic Reading, Writing and Arithmetic are the main courses. Biblical values, character development, music and arts are also incorporated in the program.

Thus the school New Hope to Asia Center for Education, Inc. was duly registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission of the Republic of the Philippines. Upon submission of all required documentations, the school operates with a permit from the Department of Education. The school's vision is to continuously provide free quality education to the indigent children of Cainta.

As the first batch of Preschoolers from the year 2007 continues to step up to the next level, every year, the Grade level increases. By year 2019, New Hope to Asia Center for Education will be offering full Elementary and High School education. The school is under the umbrella and financed by New Hope to Asia Christian Foundation, Inc.

But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.

2 Timothy 3:14-15
