Who We Are
Founded by Pastor Bill Wilson in 1980, in Brooklyn New York, Metro World Child has worked to rescue hurting children and offer a message of salvation and love that encourages them to stay in school and away from gangs and other destructive or criminal behaviors so common in inner-city environments. Metro meets both spiritual and physical needs through long-term one-on-one relationships, mentorship, child sponsorship and visitation.
In 2001, Pastor Bill went to the Philippines with a mission in his heart to reach the poor, unreached, inner-city kids of Metro Manila. Partnering with already existing local churches, Metro started reaching out to kids in the community. Originally starting with just five partner churches from Muntinlupa, Metro World Child has grown to over 40 partner churches in over eight different provinces including Metro Manila, Davao and Palawan. Currently we reach over 20,000 children on a weekly basis.
Metro World Child is a global faith-based, humanitarian organization serving nearly 100,000 children each week with after school programs, Sunday School services, child sponsorship, special programs and personal home visits.
