Help us build a women's training center!
To support the Solar Project, there is a need to have a training center with a daycare facility.
Currently, we are working with (former) Mayor of Marikina City Marides Fernando. Marides is now a private entrepreneur and her firm (www.bfmetalcorp.com) has a government contract with the Philippine Department of Education to build 2,000 classrooms. She has offered to build a Training Center on vacant land owned by the Mondejar Family where some of the women beneficiaries of the Solar Power Systems Training Program will be trained.
A 65 square meter classroom will cost $25,000 to build and also requires 100 square meters of land area. FWN CEO Marily Mondejar is pledging her share of the Mondejar vacant land in Cabalawan, Tacloban City for this project.
In the meantime, we are helping rebuild the Daughters of St. Paul Convent and Media Center in Tacloban City with a $10,000 grant.
The Pauline Sisters will allow us to conduct our trainings at the Alberione Hall (once it's repaired with solar panels). Currently, the Pauline Sisters have been helping the 25 women we've selected at the center.
Please sponsor a Filipina to learn technical job skills and help us build a women's training center for $200.
