Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project helping women in dire situation. Early on we realize that we should also assist women who are in difficult economic situation in order to prevent them from being trafficked and in order to prevemt them from leaving and be lured by promises of better future especially in big cities. Without good education and economic leverage, these women will have so much difficulty and there is a need to provide for small-scale sustainable livelihoods for them. This reporting period we are happy to note that we have been given a big boost by support from a global fund for women in order to continue and expand our work. Our organization become also an official member of an international women's organization based in the United Kingdom and this is great news indeed. We are thankful that the needed documentation for us to be accredited have been accomplished and accepted. Hoping for your continuing support to our project.
Very sincerely yours,

Continue treating stray animals
By Michelle Frances - Project Leader
Warm greetings and thank you very much for your continuing support to our project preventing the cruelty to animals espcially dogs and cats. The situation here is that after the initial excitement of residents, especially children in owning pets, they are sometimes abandoned and left to fend for themselves and they are often sick, covered with lice and are not provided with food on a regular basis. This reporting period, we contine to provide for them by purchasing food and medicines so that these animals can be treated and fed. We also inform the owners how the animals can be treated using local resources like meat and rice that are excess in the household. We also informed the owners to build a small, decent housing for the animals. We were able to provide for 7 dogs in this manner during this time. Hoping for your continuing generosity to our initiative.
Very sincerely yours,

Providing added value to farm products
By Michelle Frances Uy - Project Leader
Warm greetings and thank you very much for your support to our project providing farm-based livelihood to girls. Farming because of a host of factors such as erratic weather events, low farm-gate prices of harvested crops and high cost of inputs is no longer attractive for both men and women alike. There is a great need to revitalize agriculture and we can do this by tapping the potential of young people, who still have the energy and passion to implement change in their communities. This reporting period, we promoted the adding of value of farm products by processing these products into highly marketable condiments, tea and food additives. For example, we assisted a group of 5 young women process their chili production into highly-marketable chili paste and then assisting them in marketing. We have several products that can be processed and these are turmeric into powder, moringa into tea and drinks and ginger into tea.
