Help support my Youth Project in the Philippines
I will spend the next 3 years of my life in the Philippines, working with young people in support of a local organisation, the Apostolic Vicariate of Bontoc-Lagawe.
The aim of this project is to create activities for the youth of Bontoc-Lagawe; a rural area with little work opportunities other than small-scale farming. The necessity for this project is due to the high number of families where parents have to work away from their home, often forced to leave the children alone outside of school hours.
My project has been made possible by the Swiss organisation COMUNDO, that is committed to making the world fairer – with around 100 co-workers in seven countries across Latin America, Africa and Asia, alongside awareness-raising work in "the North" (i.e. developed countries). With your donation, you can support the work of COMUNDO and its partners – and you can do so in name of my project in the Philippines.
For further information, here is COMUNDO's website: http://www.comundo.org/en/our_work/around_the_world/philippines/
