HBI is proud to announce that they are one of the participants of the June 2018 Accelerator Program of GlobalGiving – the largest global crowdfunding community connecting nonprofits, donors, and companies in nearly every country.
As part of this program, HBI is seeking support for its first crowdfunding project centered on improving four (4) rural public daycare centers in the mountain communities of Balaoan, Santol, and Sudipen, La Union, Northern Philippines. The project entitled “Send 200 Filipino kids to better daycare centers” plans on implementing identified needed daycare improvements such as infrastructure repairs; providing educational toys and puzzles; creating a small library with story books and picture books; provision of audio-visual equipment such as a television, a sound system, and educational videos; and implementing teacher and volunteer trainings along the areas of children’s rights protection and awareness.
By doing these, at least 200 poor Filipino children age 3 to 5 years old, who hail from families earning less than 2 Dollars a day, will have free access and use of a variety of learning facilities that will ignite their interest and love for knowledge and learning. Apart from this, a potential long-term impact of making this project a reality is the fact that future daycare learners will stand to benefit from improved & sustained daycare facilities which will prepare them for primary schooling.
The project requires a total funding of US$ 5,000. Although there is a variety of giving options ranging from US$10 to US$250 available, any amount from you would contribute towards transforming needy public daycare centers into equipped & integral social institutions for children. If you cannot donate, we will appreciate if you can spread the word about this project.
Please feel free to contact us should you have any questions.
Thank you to all,
Your HBI Team
