Thanks to the amazing support of the matched giving campaign of our local bank we are able to sponsor 10 students in every batch of this year’s sewing classes of our partner Project Life Subic in the Philippines.
During his stay in the Philippines, our director Tobias Schüßler was able to personally hand over the cheque. „For the team of Project Life this is something special,“ Schüßler reports. „They get to see that their dedication is seen and appreciated and are really happy that the thank you notes which they send around half the globe make the donors happy.“
Schüßler furthermore made use of the opportunity to speak to the students of the current class and explained to them, that after successfully graduating, they receive help in job hunting, and can also get advice and access to capital if they want to apply the just-learned business skills by opening their own small business or increaseing an existing microbusiness.
The sponsored students in the current class are:
1. Lyra Isyasa
2. Celia Lorenzo
4. Bregida Mañago
6. Reymalyn Capio
7. Jeslie Genova
8. Mira Saludares
9. Mark Benjie Marty
10. Baby Lara Paderon
We thank all our program sponsors for making this training possible for the participants! The thank you notes are on the way to the addresses you gave us!
