These are strategies to expand the work of our evangelization in CFC KFL.

This program helps the kids know more about Christ by their participation in their parishes. This program offers various formation activities of the CFC KFL to the parish. It also helps the KFL ministry to connect to their parish church and become partners in bringing the children closer to God.
b. Work with the Poor (WWP)
This is CFC KFL’s response to the community’s core value on living a preferential option for the poor. It aims to bring and make Jesus known to the poor children of Restoration and Mission Villages, by providing values formations which are aligned with the basic Bible truths and Filipino values and culture.
c. School Based
This is offered as a club and is open to all public and Catholic private elementary schools. It is designed to help the students in their total Christian formation through various activities that will help them deepen their personal relationship with God and enhance their appreciation and understanding of their faith in the school setting.
Through these advocacies, we make the children aware of the realities of our society today and how they should remain and live as a Catholic kid in this pressing time.
a. Live Pure for Kids – Live Like Jesus
This advocacy teaches chastity among kids – purity in thoughts, words and deeds – and promotes and defends the culture of life.
b. Little Stewards (WWP)
This helps the kids appreciate, take good care and share all their blessings to others – through their time, talent and treasure.
c. Cool Catholic Kids
Serves as a tool to educate, to inform and open the hearts and minds of the kids to serve the Lord as young as they are by having a deeper knowledge and appreciation of their Catholic faith.

Answers to God’s call to protect and defend life by being responsible stewards of His creation. Through this cause, we hope to raise awareness among the children to take the lead in caring for our surroundings by doing little acts of compassion and mercy for the good of Mother Earth.
