Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Inspired by our MSc Studies in Sustainability and the community and natural beauty of Palawan we would like to try to be part of the solution rather than the problem.
We are planning to design and create a Permaculture Community Forest garden and Atelier Aquatic, an Art school inspired by Marine life and Marine conservation. Both projects linking to social enterprise here in Port Barton, Palawan, Philippines.
Please watch and share our YouTube film:
The need for a Permaculture Community Forest Garden in Port Barton:
1. Food security and natural resource issues- causing malnutrition in low income families, distribution issues, and pollution.
2. Affordable replacement for lack of fish from collapse of fishing industry.
3. Opportunities for shared responsibility and training.
For more info:
The need for Atelier Aquatic in Port Barton:
1. Education in Marine life and Marine Conservation, Port Barton has a 10 hectare MPA that most are unaware of.
2. Art is an accessible and fun way to learn for the whole community
3. Creative, cultural, social development of using art as a tool for environmental awareness.
