Summary

This project will provide the funding for a Filipino youth group called "Buklod Ng Kabataan" to run a week of fun workshops aiming to involve more youths in environmental activism in Manila. Buklod Ng Kabataan, means "Youth Bonding Together" in Filipino, and that's exactly what they've done since 2007. Their goal is simple - to involve young people in environmental activism and encourage them to take responsibility for their environment!

Challenge

Buklod Ng Kabataan members live in an extremely flood prone community called Banaba. They know from first hand experience that floods are devastating and the effects are worsened when the environment is degraded. They also know that youths are the key to a green future, yet their educational system doesn't stress environmental awareness. That's why Buklod Ng Kabataan decided to take action and mobilize youths using their own inactive.

Solution

This project will provide funding for Buklod Ng Kabataan to execute a week of theater and art workshops. These workshops will centre on the theme of protecting mother earth and will aim to involve more youths in Buklod Ng Kabataan's work. In addition to their environmental value, they'll also be a fun, enriching week which will give Buklod Ng Kabataan a chance to show how powerful youth-led workshops can be!

Long-Term Impact

The workshops will involve more Banaba youths in protecting their environment while empowering Buklod Ng Kabataan members to take the lead! In both areas, the effects of holding these workshops will reverberate well into the future.
