Feeding Another Batch of 500 Malnourished Children
 
Following the success of our project to provide sumptuous meal for 500 malnourished and poor children by the first quarter of 2017, we are again launching a brand-new project to provide for another 500 more malnourished children and this time concentrating in the mountains of Misamis Oriental Province. This is as a means to improve their nutrition and so that they can taste also what a nice meal really is, they, accustomed to salt and rice whole year round..
Tree Growing for Life As Rain Continue
 
This project aims to start a seedling nursery and plant 25,000 high-valued fruit and timber trees as replacement of trees damaged because of the long dry season caused by El Nino. The opportunity is that when the long dry cycle ends, continuous rain occurs and this is the time to plant trees. Trees provide income to growers, shade, food for animals, improve water retention, improve soil fertility and many more benefits to the local population as well as to the environment.
Help for Cagayan de Oro!
 
Massive flooding hits Cagayan de Oro City since Monday January 16 destroying homes, vehicles and stranding thousands of residents. At this time, rains is continuous and thousands of residents are staying in evacuation centers. There is indeed urgent need for food packs, solar lamps, blankets, hygiene kits and materials for house repairs especially for ultra-poor families.
Egg Incubator for Poor Women
 
The project seeks to increase the incomes of poor women chicken and duck entrepreneurs by the purchase of a 1,200 egg capacity incubator so that their production of chicks will increase to a level of 1,000 chicks (minus mortality) per 28-day cycle. In this way they are able to produce and sell 1,000 day-old chicks in volume rather than at the present rate of depending on the chicken to hatch their eggs. This will mean good income for 72 poor women engaging in chicken and duck raising here.
Training 300 Young Farmers on Organic Agriculture
 
There is a tendency in the rural areas here with poor farmers to marry early and have many children. This situation plus low knowledge in improved farm production leads to poor income and poor health and less chances in life. This project will provide training to 300 young farmers on organic agriculture and various farm-based livelihood options. Then we will provide them with starter livelihood and farm inputs for them to improve their own farms.
Food, Education and Hygiene Support for Girls
 
By providing upgraded piglets, this project will provide for food for very poor girls and their families in a short term. Upgraded piglets as compared to pure breed are hardy, fast-growing and can be marketed in 3 months time. They can be fed also with kitchen left-overs and surplus production from the farm. They indeed provide tremendous benefit to the beneficiaries. We aim to provide 200 piglets to 200 beneficiaries.
Solar Powered Lights for Off-Grid Poor Families
 
We will purchase at volume and distribute to our small self-help groups on credit ultra-affordable study and work solar lanterns that will provide 4 hours bright light on a full day's charge using highly efficient light-emitting diodes. Our lantern provides focused light that can be oriented in any direction, making it ideal for studying or working. The solar panel is conveniently integrated into the lamp to make solar charging simple and easy. We will target 1,500 initial beneficiaries. project reportread updates from the field

The project will provide vegetable seed packets, garden tools and materials so that the earthquake survivors can start backyard gardening and ensure food security. International food aid will be gone in a short while and will never be enough. Meanwhile gardening is easy to do, will provide relaxation and value for the depressed survivors and best of all will provide food and nutrients on a daily basis. The survivors do not have to wait for long since some vegetables mature in 22 days. project reportread updates from the field
Typhoon Haiyan Communal Hand-wash for Schools
