Tabunok, Bantayan Island, Philippines
The Peace Center is the next phase of our rebuilding of Tabunok on Bantayan Island, an area where 65% of the homes were destroyed by Typhoon Haiyan. The construction of 40 homes was recently completed.
The Peace Center will serve as the epicenter of this community's transformation -- from it a cooperative will offer reduced-priced staple goods, a weekly market will take place selling the organic vegetables that are already being grown in the community, vocational training will be brought into the community, the center will host arts and cultural programs, and micro-lending will begin -- all designed to turn a terrible tragedy into an enormous opportunity for abundance and prosperity.
We're seeking $15,000 to build The Peace Center in late March 2015 -- completion date is four weeks after construction begins.
