Fifty4Fifty Educational Fund
This is the grand daddy of all my projects – the one that started it all.
Build a Center, Rebuild Lives
A livelihood project for the residents of Fiat Village in my hometown of Silay City, Negros Occidental.
GK Hope Village Dental Clinic
In partnership with Dr. Hani Farr and the European branch of he International College of Dentists (ICD), this project involved setting up a fully-functional dental clinic in a remote village in Talisay City, Negros Occidental. This was successfully concluded from the last week of June to early July of 2012, and coincided with our vacation to the Philippines this summer. I wrote a feature story on this project here.
Fundraising Campaign for the Habagat Flood Victims in the Philippines
The most recent short-term, charity project, which involved a fundraising campaign to raise money for the flood victims of the August 2012 Habagat flooding calamity in the Philippines. Using both online and traditional channels, we were able to raise 1,100 Euros which we donated to the Gawad Kalinga Disaster Relief Fund for flood victims.
Creative Projects (For Fun)
