ABOUT THE PROJECT PARTNER
Established in 2009, this community-based organization’s mission is to help improve the livelihoods of people who work in a dumpsite through education, skill enhancement, and microfinance. In combatting poverty, this organization aims to create a channel for communities to realize their dreams through information and awareness creation.
This project will require documentation of this organization’s efforts in realizing its mission and goals. Coverage will capture the rehabilitation of children, youth, and woman through programming and supports such as education, vocational training, and sports, which is used as a tool to engage its community members. This organization works towards not only making its community sustainable within the job market, but also, aids its members to create job opportunities within their own communities.
