This project aims to support disaster-affected youths in the community of Banaba, which is on the outskirts of Manila.

In disaster-affected communities, young people can be marginalized disempowered as adults and NGOs take the lead in reconstruction. But recovery means much more than simply rebuilding damaged structures. It means regaining a sense of control, hope, and community. By empowering youths to take charge of recovery and mitigate against future disasters, we can create more sustainable, resilient communities.


This project will support a youth group in the flood-prone community of Banaba on the outskirts of Manila. The youth group, called "Buklod Ng Kabataan" aims to reduce environmental damage and involve young people in building sustainable communities.

Long-Term Impact

Banaba is vulnerable to floods, and one key way of reducing those floods' impacts is to reduce environmental degradation. This work will take years, and involving young people in its execution will be the key to success!
