• Quails for a Living in Punong, Magarao, Camarines Sur

    When BFAR (Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources) abolished the used of facilities and tools to catch small fishes and shrimps, many families in barangay Punong of Magarao, Camarines Sur lost their livelihood as well.Request Details:Per Quail = Php 40.00(Need: 1,000 quails)Per Farming Cage = Php 2,900.00(Need: 10 cages)Per Package Option:Quail Livelihood Package (Need: 10 packages)Livelihood Package Breakdown: - 100 Quails- 1 Farming CageTotal Package Cost: Php 6,900.00 (each package)(Nipa making is one of their alternative livelihood)Though many were resourceful enough to find alternatives like catching crabs and Tabios (a species of the dwarf goby and one of the smallest edible fish), these aren’t enough to sustain their cost of living. Nipa making is one of their current thriving livelihoods but too many of the families are doing the same. To prosper further, this community is in need of alternatives for livelihood. Fishing and catching shrimps is prohibited. Many of the poor families rely on working as a construction worker and laborer on a day-to-day hiring basis. A day of no work means a day of no food. Quail farming has been proposed to support 10 of the poor families in Punong. Quails are not hard to raise and their eggs can be harvested daily. They can be sold as is or can be converted to different food delicacies. Complete Quail Farming tools are requested for each of the 10 families. The local leaders commit to have them undergo Quail Farming training as their counterpart in the livelihood assistance to be provided. **Learn more about Gawad Kalinga at www.gk1world.com :

  • Surf our way to Save the Environment!

       In 2008, a group of die hard surfers discovered the site where Lola Sayong is currently situated. While enjoying the challenge brought about by the swell, they noticed that they are with local surfers who are out of school youths (OSYs). With the drive to help them finish studies, the group of Gubatnon for Adventourism Incorporated was established. The primary goal is to get funding through surfing and help the OSY surfers and ultimately the OSY of the community to finish schooling. As of date, Lola Sayong is one of the newest places to be in Sorsogon especially for backpackers and millennial. It was recently ranked second of the six places to be in Sorsogon. With the bulk of millennial visiting the place, there is a reason to enhance the camp area especially in terms of sanitation while still preserving the laid back ambiance.    There is a need for funding on the construction of comfort rooms and shower rooms. There is also a need to find a good source of water and have a water pump installed. With the continuous media exposure of the good Samaritan surfers, it is timely if they can have rush guards to serve as their uniform as to emphasize their identity of a good heart. With a more enhanced Lola Sayong Surf Camp, more tourists will come which means more OSY will be able to go back to school.WHAT WE NEED!- Kitchen Dining Facility (Php 420,000.00)- Lodging Enhancement (Php 600,000.00)- Toilet Bath Facility (Php 480,000.00)

  • TSL: TRANScending Sisterhood through Livelihood

    WHAT IS THE SOCIETAL DIVIDE? Today, even after the societal majority’s recognition of gender identity, matters have only improved marginally for transgender people. Sure there are some transgenders who have made the news for their achievements, and there are some celebrity transgenders too, but the majority still do not have access to regular employment or the skill sets to get these jobs. Social discrimination due to their gender identity is the key problem for transgender people in the Philippines. At a young age, most of them get separated from their families to the extent that they are victimized to trafficking and sex work. They have no education and social security. Attitudinal problem of the society has made them so poor and neglected that they can't find a way to live as a natural human being of the society and state. These are pivotal times for the visibly emerging transgender community. Transgender people are coming out in record numbers while increasingly demanding economic equality. The transgender community is recognizing that without the ability to achieve economic parity in the marketplace, social marginalization — often accompanied by unemployment/underemployment, poverty, substance abuse, prostitution, depression and even suicide attempts — will remain the status quo. PROPOSED SOLUTION A Livelihood Training for 30 Out of School Transgender Women/Youth of Zamboanga Peninsula on Basic Handcrafts, Embroidery and Jewelry Making and equipping them with starter kits and tools to start their application of acquired skills and production of their products is one good way of helping out these trans individuals who can seem to find themselves with disadvantaged economic status. The products these individuals will create may be sold to people through both online and offline platforms. Through proper coordination with concerned entities and agencies, their products can also be stationed in malls, souvenir shops and commercial establishments alike including those in sea ports and airports as well as in tourist spots.This initiative will allow these transgender people to generate income for themselves to help them get through everyday life.

  • Bring Hope Football Initiative

    Objectives: - To bring hope to children within the Refugee Camps- To motivate refugee children and youths to follow their own dreams - To coach children using the highest possible standards through training, mentoring and implementing a person first approach which will allow refugee children to reach their maximum potential in sport or in life- To use professional sports celebrities in the world of football/soccer, Professional Clubs, as well as other sporting icons who are devoted to demonstrate their love for all young people - To make a difference in the lives of refugee children by providing a feeling of belonging, togetherness, personal accountability, team work/team building and life coachingVision: Football is such a unique sport as there are so many disciplines that players have to master I.e. teamwork, personal and team accountability, personal/team focus, understanding information & playing formations, fitness, drive, determination, desire, dedication. Exercise requires stored energy and will ensure the young people are healthy (healthy mind = healthy body)! important life lessons. Lessons such as working hard, being dedicated and relying on others. Sports keeps children and young people engaged mentally and physically rather than engaging in violent or less desirable behaviours. With investment in youth we can protect their future. These children will live more comfortable lives in the region they are most accustomed to and where they have long-standing ties both culturally and religiously. It is truly amazing how football unites all people no matter their creed or religion. It promotes hope, friendship love as well as teaching young people about winning and losing. The commitment to sport is valuable while enduring challenges which most have already been exposed to in much more horrible circumstances will leave them in good stead for the future. Lastly, these children will remain steadfast in their belief the world and its people will help them remain independent, free and safe. Fair Play Sports Management and Football Icon:  Football brings with it international development by providing global education and effecting positive social change. Football crosses geographic, ethnic and religious boundaries. Almost everyone has either played or watched football as it is commonly played throughout much of the world. Football provides a range of benefits to society, producing identifiable results in areas such as health, education, collaboration and community building. Importantly, the game brings joy to the refugees, which moves hearts and minds. It builds character and develops the mind and spirit of the players. Football is a national sport in Kurdistan, which increases the power to mobilise people and energise programs that offer direct impact on the refugees.Beginning the project in two camps which are located in the provinces of Duhok and Erbil, specialised teams of dedicated people from BringHope Humanitarian Foundation Football Initiative will investigate the area and develop their “start-up program”. This program needs to receive funding from the authorities, private sponsors, and other funding agencies to show the World that with dedication and happiness you can build, innovate and BRING HOPE.  We can jointly make and change lives, regardless of race, religion and ethnic background, gender, and physical differences, eliminating tears and fears. We will make a difference using a known process and plan; through professionals with skills and goal setting that will lead to SUCCESS. It will not only bring joy and fun, it will also create jobs and synergies for many local people. Learning to play football not just to win, but to win with grace and style. To “live the dream” and create a culture of fun and excitement. In brief, the project aims to build a bridge between parents and coaches, coaches and children, children and life.  It is our desire to create a place where football can be taught and played engaging children at all levels, where energy is expended in a positive manner and where children feel good about where they live and the friendships they create, lasting friendships made for a lifetime. Initial plan: - Football training includes both technical and tactical elements essential to the game. The individual and team skills vital to success in football are stressed in a competitive environment. The BringHope Humanitarian Foundation Football Initiative   programs are designed to help players perform and execute high level technique while demonstrating a keen insight into the games nuances. A long term goal of the academy is to bring young talents to play at their highest level possible. - Ambassadors from Professional Football Teams visit the Camps. These Professional Football Team Ambassadors take the lead as camp owners initially targeting two of 5 camps (2 camps in Erbil, 2 camps in Duhok and 1 camp in Sulaimaniyah) in Iraqi Kurdistan (see appendix);  - Ankawa camp: Erbil - Baradarash camp: Duhok Safety and Security: Security, both safety (passive hazards) and Security (active threats), are basic needs of people and form an essential part of the project. Children can only concentrate fully on sports when they are in a safe environment. It is especially necessary to work with professional support and qualitative equipment. This professional preparation and coordinated processes ensure events that run on the venues occur without interference or incidents. Security is a dynamic process and not a static one. All written documents will be issued in both English and Kurdish languages for ease of proper communication. Stages of the project: The project consists of three phases, encompassing evaluation on the ground, preparation of required safety instructions, and evaluation of initial actions. - Preliminary phase (one week)     * Evaluation of the camps and requirements regarding safety (Safety & Security).     * Survey of staff needs and their requirements.     * Evaluation of what further events can additionally be carried out in these camps.     * Investigation of what requirements must be met to allow people a safe stay and provide a high subjective feeling. This positive and safe feeling of the protected person contributes significantly to the success of an event.     * - Main phase (two weeks)     * Developing of checklists and emergency instructions to give those people in charge needed tools.     * Training of the involved groups for the event and security services.     * Training Topics include -  number of staff needed at events and training, assess any/all significant constraints. Creating different protection zones (protection zone models), communication requirements (internal / external), mobility, risk points on events, check points at entrance, basic first aid requirements at events, equipment to ensure Security, understanding of fire protection in case of any undesired occurrences, personal protection requirements for high-ranking guests    * Minimum of three major events to support the local authorities’ responsibility for supervision. - Follow-up phase     * Evaluation and adaptation of processes and requirements.     * Retraining and workshops on lessons learned. Sponsorships: Bring Hope Humanitarian Foundation (BHHF) is seeking sponsors from FIFA, UEFA or any legitimate Organisation which is needed to make this Football Project a success. As the Main Objective is to bring HOPE – a successful roll out is the main objective, therefore we have recruited local coaches- FIFA certified and we are seeking areas for soccer fields at a local level. For the 5 camps BHHF takes care of – we are seeking a Total Budget of approximately 950,000 Euro to cover all costs (Table 1).  Safety and Security issues we feel require specialists from Europe with local support of course, to ensure the process is given full and complete attention to details/threats…known or unknown. Funding for this Project will be administered through Bring Hope Humanitarian Foundation (BHHF), headed by President Mariwan Baker, who also holds the title of IIMSAM/UN Goodwill Ambassador (permanent observer to the UNs economic and social council).  With the income created through this competitive market activity the poorest of the poor will be helped and every single player (boy or girl) will recognise, understand, and feel how to help each other as they seek and display friendship and love for each other.  Number and age of players per camp: - Under 9 Year-Old (Y.O.) (40 Players; boys and girls) - 9-13 Y.O.                      (40 Players; boys and girls) - 14-18 Y.O.                    (70 Players; boys and girls) - Total: 150 players /camp  - 5 camps x 150 = 750 players

  • "Territory of Childhood"

    About the projectThe project is aimed at helping children from disadvantaged families (aged 6 - 18 years) from the "Territory of Childhood" (association supported by Center Sirota.lv). Throughout the years, Sirota.lv carries out different activities with orphans and foster families, aimed at organizing their leisure, introduction to everyday skills, health control, culture of human relationships, talent development. "Territory of Childhood" supports more than 100 children between 6 - 18 years. Each story is unique and quite tragic. From the day they are born, these kids are destined to exist in an unfavorable environment that shapes their consciousness. Children are in need of a full-fledged education, consisting of seven main directions: spiritual, ethical, aesthetic, intellectual, labor, physical, creativity. Currently, they are engaged in daily activities by their mentor Arno, who is also the Head of the association “Territory of Childhood”. Certainly, this is quite a heavy burden for one person to carry out, so volunteer assistance is needed from time to time. What is required?Form a team of 10 volunteers - gents are needed mostly, but there will be work available for ladies as well. The main task is to clear up the area - prepare the territory of the organization to create children’s sports ground. Basically, we will need to dig out and cut off the roots of trees as well as remove twigs which are sticking out of the ground. Donation of 200 EUR also requested for inventory and equipment, which will include at least 5 pieces of shovels, garden-scissors, cutters for branches and gloves.More information about association “Territory of Childhood” For the past three years, kids have gathered at Arno’s. It was difficult to shelter, feed, dress them all, but, at some point, Arno realized that this was not the main thing why children approached him. It is more important for them to be engaged with grown-ups in normal communication without abuse or insults. For the past years Arno tries to patronize and support kids on the territory of the former factory which he initially rented for work purposes.
