Caritas Expo

Celebrating 60 Years of Living Faith in its Social Mission, this year’s Caritas Manila's Expo entitled BUY and GIVE EXPO will feature and showcase products made by social entrepreneurs via Caritas Manila’s own social enterprise: Caritas Margins and Segunda Mana. This expo is happening at Trinoma Mall from November 29 to December 1.

This event aims to raise funds to help sustain the pro-poor programs of Caritas Manila. The products sold in the BUY and GIVE EXPO are made by the poor communities and from the marginalized sector currently being supported by Caritas Manila. Art pieces are made by residents from National Bilibid Prison, gift items, accessories, and personal care products made by urban poor families, pre-loved items and inventories from our benefactors and corporate partners are just some of the products showcased in this Expo.

Every product you BUY, you actually GIVE to someone in need via these 3 ways: 

First,the item one buys gives income to the producer of the product from the poor community/marginalized sector.

Second, part of the revenues will be plowed back to help sustain Caritas Manila’s pro-poor programs, specifically on Skills and Livelihood Training and Youth Servant Leadership and Education Programs

Third, buying the product is giving to oneself or for someone else to appreciate.
