About Kilig Candle Co.
Your candle purchase does a lot more than you think...
1 candle purchased = 1 meal for an impoverished child in the Philippines
We have partnered with Canadian non-profit Adhika to provide meals for children in need in the Philippines.
Adhika is a word in Tagalog that means goal, wish, or desire.
Proudly founded in 1985, Adhika has been actively working to build and inspire Filipino communities by providing meals to children in need and resources for women and families to live out their own goals, create their own success stories and make their dreams come true.
Staring in 2007, Adhika saw a need in the Philippines when noticing that children were dropping out or not enrolling into school because they did not have a baon or allowance to purchase a meal at school. This financial burden on local families was causing children to not continue their education.
With this, Adhika started their School-Feeding Program and has seen a dramatically positive difference with the children that they have been able to help so far. Providing meals has given an incentive to families to keep their children in school, has significantly improved their learning ability, increased their confidence and even amended their nutrition status.
For every candle you purchase, Kilig Candle Co. will proudly donate a meal to one of these children.
