Providing low-cost arborloos and using human waste for vegetable gardening and tree planting. This will solve diseases, save valuable organic fertilizer and improve health and food security.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
The problem faced by marginalized families in Misamis Oriental province is that they have very few resource-base, malnourished and health and sanitation is poor. Providing them local livelihoods will "pump-prime" their own development. Local livelihoods will be farm-based such as raising small animals (pigs, chicken and goats), vegetable gardening and planting high-valued fruit trees.
How will this project solve this problem?
The project will provide arborloo toilets, vegetable seeds, draft animals for cultivating the farm as well as seedlings of high-valued fruit trees. The beneficiary will repay this in terms of offspring or harvest of vegetables and or fruits.
Potential Long Term Impact
We target 300 marginalized families. Providing them with arborloo toilets and "pump-priming" livelihood resources will improve their economic self-sufficiency and ensure their living dignified lives rather than living like animals.
