At this time, rains is continuous and thousands of residents are staying in evacuation centers.

Feeding 500 Malnourished Children
The project will provide sumptuous meal for 500 malnourished and poor children by this New Year and the first quarter of 2017 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.
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

After the initial funds are invested twice, assuming a repayment rate of at least 95%, the program will qualify for additional installments until the permanent loan pool reaches full capacity and the fund will revolve in the community. project reportread updates from the field
Typhoon Haiyan Communal Hand-wash for Schools
When Super-typhoon Haiyan struck, it destroyed most water systems in more than 3,000 schools in its path. Water for hygiene and hand-washing is badly needed. Our project will install low-cost, robust, steel pipe communal hand-wash stations in Leyte and Samar Provinces with the goal of providing safe hygiene for school-children. We aim to produce and install a total of 500 hand-wash by the first month of classes in June 2014. project reportread updates from the field
Send Typhoon Haiyan Affected Students to College
The main problem with Typhoon Haiyan affected students especially girls is that they have difficulty going back to school as most lost their homes and livelihoods and some have parents and siblings who did not survive. They are indeed in very dire strait and they are prey to criminal syndicates offering them job in the cities but only to end up as prostitutes. This modest project will try to send 10 hardly affected girls to college or vocational school, so that they will have a good future ahead project reportread updates from the field
Low-cost Sanitation For Typhoon Haiyan Survivors
We will provide low-cost pour-flush toilets for Typhoon Haiyan survivors in Tacloban City. The City is totally wiped-out with 95% of the structures flattened to the ground. Safe sanitation is one of the urgent needs but this will be overlooked by international aid since the concentration of the support will be on food, shelter, medicines, communications and to bury the dead. We are experts in sanitation work having supported Typhoon Washi survivors in Cagayan de Oro and Iligan Cities in 2011. project reportread updates from the field
El Nino Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Initiative
The project will provide water, sanitation and hygiene support for local communities badly affected by the El Nino in the Philippines. We will provide dry, waterless toilets, water containers and hygiene kits focusing on mountainous and hard to reach areas. The choice of dry, waterless toilets is because the traditional pour-flush toilets is no longer effective due to lack of water and open defecation is a major problem due to spread of diseases. project reportread updates from the field
