This economic development project builds a disaster-proof and solar-powered facility where 354 Filipino families, still recovering from the damages of Typhoon Haiyan, from a coastal village in Palompon, Leyte can improve their livelihood by advancing their practical knowledge and skills in aquatic food-processing and technology, food-packaging, and handicrafts.

The livelihood opportunities and overall quality of life for 354 families in Brgy. Buenavista collapsed when Palompon, Leyte was devastated by Typhoon Haiyan in 2013. Four years later, families continue to struggle in generating sufficient income to meet basic needs. In addition to providing 354 solar lamps and 5 solar street lights, Global Peace Foundation Philippines furthers its commitment to foster family self-reliance and resilience in Buenavista through economic development intervention.


Global Peace Foundation Philippines combines solar technology with income generation solutions and public-private partnerships to improve livelihood and overall quality of life in measurable ways. Beyond building a disaster-proof facility and providing machinery powered by sustainable and clean energy, GPF's works also include workshops, training, and enterprise development to promote economic development in the community.

Long-Term Impact

We empower communities on an on-going basis to support their own efforts to flourish and to be sustainable. With your support and the support of our public-private partners, this economic development project will benefit 354 families and the next generations of families in Buenavista. These livelihood interventions and development opportunities are effective ways of breaking the cycle of poverty and dependence towards self-reliance and a resilient community.
