The evacuation centre you’ve helped equip is continuing to change lives everyday. As the centre’s programmes grow, it’s becoming more difficult for us to split the activities described in this project from our larger project in Banaba - Help Filipino Communities Prepare for Disaster.
As a result, we’ve decided to fold this project into Help Filipino Communities Prepare for DIsaster. To be clear, the work you’ve funded will continue to grow and expand - it just has a new home here on GlobalGiving.
We’d like to extend a warm thank you for your generosity! All together, we’ve raised $3,783 to help Banaba resist and recover from disaster right here on GlobalGiving.
Because of your generosity, we’ll be able to improve the evacuation centre so that Ryan and David will have a safe place to weather storms.
Beyond simply giving them shelter, your gift will help the boys’ parents access livelihoods and poverty reduction programmes. It will be a long process, but these projects represent the opportunity for the family to escape poverty and move to safer housing.
You’ve started dozens of families on the road to self-sufficiency. Thanks so much!
We’ll post updates on the school’s growth right here on GlobalGiving – so keep checking back.
As always, if you ever have any questions about how we’re using your donation please don’t hesitate to email Emma@IDVolunteers.org. I would love to hear from you!
We hope you had a Merry Christmas and thanks so much to everyone who has set up recurring donations following our email on the 20th!
Today, we’re looking back on 2013. It’s been a fantastic year. Thanks to you, Filipino community leaders are able to run more workshops to reduce poverty and keep the community’s most vulnerable safe during floods.
These workshops include learning how to make saleable products out of trash, activities to help young people stay in school, and drills on what to do when disaster strikes.
The workshops you made possible are making all the difference for families like Mae’s. But while huge progress has been made in 2013, there are still too many families who we can’t reach because the centre isn’t yet fully equipped.
This New Year, we hope you’ll resolve to help us get more families involved in the centre’s life changing programmes by setting up a monthly donation. When you set up your recurring donation before the ball drops and 2014 begins, GlobalGiving will match your gift.
