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.
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.
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
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
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
Typhoon Haiyan Filipino Home Building Project
The project will provide basic building materials such as nails, galvanized iron, bamboo slats for walling, coconut lumber and cement for Typhoon Haiyan survivors so that they can have a decent Filipino-type dwelling that they so love and to replace the current habitation they have consisting of foreign tents and or lean-to's. In some instances, nails are only what is needed in order for the beneficiaries to re-build their broken down homes. The foreign tents are very hot and flimsy. project reportread updates from the field
