Urban Missionaries of the Philippines

Empowering Filipino laborers. 


We, the Urban Missionaries (UM), a Mission Partner of the Association of Major Religious Superiors in the Philippines (AMRSP) on labor apostolate, envisions a society where all workers' rights and dignity are upheld.

Since March 1977, Urban Missionaries has worked to offer a variety of programs, services, and organizing opportunities to empower Filipino laborers.


Today’s students.
Tomorrow’s leaders.

Often, the students of Filipino laborers must travel extensively to reach their schools. Urban Missionaries assist families with their transportation costs to ensure all children, regardless of their socioeconomic background, are able to succeed in their academic endeavors. Learn how to get involved.



When one loses the capacity to dream about changing one’s lot as a worker, then one also loses the capacity to help change society
