• Basic and Medical Needs for Native Tribe Dwellers in Mindoro

    The town of San Teodoro in Mindoro Oriental, Luzon is surrounded by mountains & forests, inhabited by native tribes who survive with bountiful crops. These bare-footed farmers walk far to the town proper to sell their harvest, enduring the heavy load on their shoulders because they cannot afford to pay for transportation. The only available transportation, tricycles, charge them expensively because there are no other options and no regular passengers to transport to and from their community in Barangay Saclag. A seven (7) kilometer walk is normal among these natives. Vehicles and public transportation rarely pass by their area, they need transportation, food, medicines, slippers and educational support.Transportation needs: - Multicab for all the patients that need to travel in the hospital Medical needs:1.

  • 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)

  • The Dalaginding Project

    The realities...Province of Ifugao -- is a landlocked province of the Philippines in the Cordillera Administrative Region in Luzon. Its capital is Lagawe and it borders Benguet to the west, Mountain Province to the north, Isabela to the east, and Nueva Vizcaya to the south.  Adolescent population of Ifugao is 23% of the total population of 190,948 of NSO 2010 Census. Under this adolescent age bracket there are 22,527 males and 21,859 females. The Ifugao Population is characterized as a young age population with a high dependency ratio of 68%. This is a diverse major segment in the population of Ifugao that have varying problems and concerns which needs paramount attention. The young population requires provision for social, physical and psychological resources and having a high dependency burden implies a heavy burden to the working age group that would result to limited savings and investments in both micro and macro level.Gender issues...1. High incidence of teenage pregnancy2. Early marriage 3. Increasing number of sexually transmitted disease (STD) 4. Emerging number of Abortion 5. Alarming number of rape, incest, and sexual harassment 6. Youth malnutrition 7. Low participation in locally mandated government bodies What we can do… PNGOC believes and upholds the dignity of every woman and adolescents to become empowered in asserting their rights, dreams and aspiration in life, and most of all to prevent violence against women and children (VAWC). PNGOC interventions focus on young adolescents aged 10 to 19 for the following reasons: a. Acknowledges adolescence as a critical period of transition in life. This is the period when the girls “grows so fast,” that it is unnoticed.  b. This is the period of puberty when psychosocial changes and adjustments occur.  c. The girl seeks attention and the urge to belong. She starts to socialize and join groups  Another focus is to help adolescents in poor communities to uphold their basic rights and to become empowered for the following reasons: *Women in poor communities are vulnerable from different forms of abuses and violence. Most of the time they are not empowered to seek support services, especially when their rights are violated due to lack of support group and stigma from the community. *Some women suffer the cycle of domestic violence resulting to emotional and psychological trauma, which affects the relationships among its family members. The Dalaginding Project The ‘dalaginding’ derives from a Filipino local term for young adolescent women. The Dalaginding Project is a gender responsive project that help empower young adolescent women to learn and lead change through: a. Age appropriate self- development and leadership training b. Catalizing action for girls’ rights c. Recognize the position of power and influence of boys in shaping the behaviors. d. Assist in forming 6 Girls’ Clubs (school or community setting) of emerging girl-leaders to train their peers and encourage them to set up Girls Clubs in their communities. Girls’ Clubs can help shift gender norms, attitudes and practices by increasing girls’ self confidence, encouraging them to express their views and gaining more power to control their lives. e. Mentor the Girls Clubs in managing projects and events such as fundraising activities, micro entrepreneurial and income generating activities, and developing life skills. The Campaign Messages For every PHP 1,000.00 you can help a young adolescents to undergo empowerment training and to have an Young Adolescent Empowerment Toolkit.

  • 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.

  • 44 Days of Healthy Meals for Indigenous Children

    Surallah, South Cotabato in Mindanao is home to hundreds of indigenous children. Most of these beautiful kids are hungry due to poverty. By building a care kitchen which will serve nutritious food, the health of these children will improve. In effect, this will reflect in their educational performance. When their stomachs are full, their minds will be sharp! Request Details:1 meal per day (every lunch time) = Php 16.00Cost for one (1) child for 2 months (44 days) = Php 704.00Target number of meals: 6,600Total target: 150 children for 2 months (44 days) = Php 105,600.00Kusina ng Kalinga (KnK) continuously operates to feed students throughout the school year.You may sponsor a child for one school year for only Php 3,520.00. Agustina, a Barangay Councilwoman, says that “We have indigenous children here whose parents' work can only sustain their daily needs. Most of the time it isn't enough for the whole family. There are days that these children don't go to school because they don't have anything to eat. There are times that they still attend classes despite having empty stomachs. We would be very grateful if there would be a feeding program implemented. At least for a while, their hunger will be mitigated.” Since a Care Kitchen takes time to build and gather proper resources, the community would like to conduct a 2-month start up feeding program for 150 kids. This means 150 less hungry children from South Cotabato. Every lunch, a free meal will be served from Monday to Friday at their elementary school for two (2) consecutive months. **Learn more about Gawad Kalinga at www.gk1world.com : Cotabato City, SOCCSKSARGEN, Philippines
