Children of Santiago Apostol Inc or CoSAI started with the desire of friends to help the children in Ibaan, Batangas. It all started with the question, “How can we help the Children of Ibaan?” and since then as they say, the rest is history. CoSAI started in 2010 from a simple vision to be of help and impart a positive change in the lives of the children in Ibaan. Since majority of the stockholders of the Organization lives in Ibaan they have decided to build an Organization that would help in addressing the needs of the indigent children in Ibaan, Batangas. The Stockholders and Board of Trustees of CoSAI are private individuals who yearn to help and be a blessing to others. These are professionals who in their own earnings and simple life never cease to share their blessings and these people finds pleasure in making the less fortunate ones especially the children happy. In the two years that CoSAI has been operational, the group is proud to have activities that really made an impact into the lives of its beneficiaries. The genuine smiles in the faces of the Children are incomparable. The bliss that it brought into the hearts of the CoSAI members is irreplaceable. No amount of money can equate on the satisfaction that the members felt in their heart knowing that they were able to help in their own way. CoSAI is driven by their mission to improve and uplift the quality of life of the underprivileged Filipino people and enthused by their vision to give hope, inspiration and guidance to the society. CoSAI continuously create and execute activities to fulfill their commitment to impart a positive change in the society, the group believes that Children are the future of our country that’s why they should be given utmost attention and care. With these relentless activities, CoSAI got the nod of an International Organization Para SA Bata. Now, CoSAI is the official Philippine partner of Para Sa Bata Organization. Para Sa Bata is based in New Jersey USA. As the years passes by CoSAI also dreams to be of help and lend a hand to other children in other parts of the country. Their goal to help does not stop in Ibaan as the group knows that there are children in the rest of our country that also needs assistance and it is something that CoSAI would gladly give. With this is mind, CoSAI officially adopted Munting Hiling Program this year. Through the Munting Hiling adoption the reach of CoSAI increased. This is a good avenue for the group to get in touch with other indigent children. As the scope and area widens, the opportunity to help also increases. The adoption also gives the group the chance to implement year-round charity activities that could be of help to our less fortunate brothers and sisters. The group believes that no amount is too little or too big for someone who is really eager to help. The willingness to share is something that is found in the heart.
