Dear Friends and Supporters,

This is the final report as the project ended on 30 September 2015. I am sure you are aware that there is still so much work still to be done in helping the survivors to fully recover, and I urge you to continue to support other worthwhile projects on Global Giving.

So what did you help us to achieve in helping over the last year?

To meet with the changing need our project changed focus shifting from relief to building disaster resilience so that the survivors would be better prepared to withstand future natural disasters.

We were able to train and place five youth volunteers from Mindanao to work for one year to help their fellow Filipinos. Aidah and Mei-Mei worked in Tacloban with Eastern Visayas Network; in Cebu, Bolkia and Mami with Gualandi Volunteer Service Programme and Nene with Rescue Assistance Peacekeeping Intelligence Detail.

  • Contributed over 7500 hours of volunteer work
  • Helped 3,471 People: (2,050 Female;1,421 Male) including 551 people with disability ( 323F; 228M)
  • Some examples of their work;

• Conducted psychosocial activities and distributed school supplies to 108 children affected in San Remegio, North  Cebu.
• Consultation with 137 children and youth from 4 Municipalities of Leyte about Disaster and Risk Reduction activities and identify potential Adolescent Team Educators (ATEs) on Disaster and Risk Reduction.
• Workshop-Training of Deaf Disaster Assistance Team-Disaster Risk Reduction (DDAT-DRR) for the deaf.
• Conducted 6 Psychosocial activities for children affected by Typhoon Haiyan in Tacloban City, Leyte and Samar
• Assisted in the training of a total of 66 Civil Society Organization‘champions’ from both Leyte and Samar provinces in Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR)

Dear Friends and Supporters,

Your donations go towards training and supporting our volunteers in their work. Not only are you empowering young people to improving their own lives, you are also indirectly helping towards improving other lives in Mindanao .
Two of our current volunteers are Nor-Jannah (Norj) and Jonaira (Jopay), they are placed at an NGO called United Youth for Peace and Development (UNYPAD). They have been working on a project that is helping out of school youth in Mindanao to gain livelihood skills. The project in collaboration with government agencies gave skills training and basic literacy using the Alternative Learning System. The youth learned various skills such as Automotive Repair, Bread and Pastry Making, Dressmaking etc
Norj had the huge task managed the database of all the trainees whilst Jopay organized many aspects of the training including coordination with local officials.

As well as increasing the employability, it also assists protecting the youth against stereotyping, extremism and other types of radicalization. These are the same outcomes that we aim for with our volunteering program.

Thank you for your continued support

Disaster Resilience at the local level

A reminder at the roadside  May 2015
A reminder at the roadside May 2015

Dear Friends,

Tacloban City is on the road to recovery but there is still much work ahead especially on issues such as Disaster Resilience. 2 of our volunteers, Aidah and Mei-Mei, are working there with Eastern Visayas Network (EVNet). They provide support and capacity to EVNet so that they are able to develop their programs.
Recently they have been involved in the training of a total of 66 Civil Society Organization (CSO) ‘champions’ in Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR). The CSO leaders, from both Leyte and Samar provinces, received training to enhance their knowledge and skills in Child-Centered Community-Based Disaster Risk Reduction. These CSO ‘Champions’ will serve as promoters and mobilizers of child-centered DRR in communities and local government.
EVNet is a local partner of United Nation Children’s Fund (UNICEF whose project will help local NGOs to develop child-centered disaster risk management (DRM) programs and integrate them into local development and emergency plans.

The work of our volunteers is greatly helped through your support

Thank you

Mariam
