Help Us Empower Them
When natural disaster strikes, it’s not just houses that are destroyed. Entire communities are shattered and families are displaced as people are left to start over from scratch. The psychological trauma of undergoing a tragedy of this magnitude cannot be overlooked. And part of the rehabilitation process involves the provision of community development programs that emphasize on education and self-sufficiency.
We are a non-profit organization, offering relief through various community development opportunities for displaced victims.
We aim to make a tangible difference in the quality of their lives by working on adult literacy, job training and counseling.
