Our organisation HBU Inc. is a grassroots NGO engaged in public school feeding of impoverished poor pupils covering the remote communities in Cabatuan, Iloilo. Our official website is http://hbu-inc.webs.com, facebook firstname.lastname@example.org and online fundraising community at http://www.ammado.com/nonprofit/hbu-inc/
The dedicated public school faculty are directly implementing the project, with the pupils' parents helping in the actual cooking and food serving.
On the side, we are working with the school and parents of the beneficiaries to engage in school and home gardening (organic vegetables), waste recycling as well as handicraft entrepreneurial activities to augment the feeding project and possible income opportunity for parents and poor households.
Our small project has gathered community support concerning one school with the dedication of the faculty. And with that working/intervention approach we would like to continuously engage with the school with the feeding plus other complementary activities to serve as a model to be replicated to other public schools and communities. This is indeed a promising plan, and if we would be effective could significantly create an impact in the improvement of the rural communities.
Just as an additional information also, our organisation is collecting second hand items like clothes, toys, bags, etc. for consequent distribution to intended beneficiaries by way of gift coupons. We gather financial help from well-to-do members of the society, issue the gift coupons to indigent population and that the coupon value could be redeemed from the store. Our organisation's supporters could also buy second hand items directly, proceeds of sale could then be used to support our project activities. There is a monetary consideration involved for a more effective resource distribution (i.e. people get things that they need most) and so as beneficiaries will treasure the value of goods 'given' to them, where in the traditional relief distribution such emphasis may not be always strong.
We also have another project which is the buy and sell of junk items: net profit in support of buying school materials for Grade VI pupils in public schools in Cabatuan, Iloilo, Philippines
The rationale behind this are:
Used soda plastic bottles, tin cans, iron rods, aluminum & other usable items are scattering around.
Poor pupils in a number of public schools in Cabatuan, Iloilo, Philippines can't have complete school materials like notebook, paper, pen, pencil, crayons, bags and other school supplies needed for schooling.
The pupils & primarily their parents leading them, will engage in the collection of used items for recycling; or buy those items from community households and sell them at a higher price to trading shops.
A US$100 operating fund will be enough to support each Grade/Class in one public school to carry-out this project with the teacher-in-charged facilitating, pupils' parents directly involved.
Net profit gained from this activity will be used in buying school materials, if some excess in buying food, during the school year.
Funds raised in tranches of US$100 will support one Grade/Class in one public school; more will be served subject to funding availability.
A financial support in any amount for this project could be easily coursed through at our fundraising community at this link http://www.ammado.com/community/121460
It is also the intention of HBU Inc. management to engage as possible in other fundraising initiative, including getting job assignment by the organisation's management through oDesk, in which the payments received will be used to support our beneficiaries (i.e. if they will be directly involved in the oDesk work) or in furtherance of our general work.
