Mission Princesa 2014

<p>  </p> <p> We are 6 business school students at ESCP Europe in Paris, and members of the "Rue des Enfants" association, organizing a 2-month humanitarian mission in the Puerto Princesa Gawad Kalinga village on Palawan in the Philippines in July and August.</p> <p>  </p> <p> Our mission will focus on helping a Gawad Kalinga community by bringing our managerial education, and an economic <strong>assistance</strong> in the local populations' projects of developping their economic<strong> autonomy</strong>, thanks to the fostering of social entrepreneurship. </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Gkk" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/72978/gkk.png"></p> <p>  </p> <p> The urgent needs of the local populations, spawned by the typhoon Haiyan, led us to act quickly.</p> <p>  </p> <p> Gawad Kalinga ("take care" in philippino) is an international humanitarian association founded in the Philippines and aiming at ending poverty by gathering families in self-organised <strong>communities</strong> and offering them the opportunity of economic independence thanks to the fostering of social <strong>entrepreneurship</strong>. </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="304" src="//cdn.embedly.com/widgets/media.html?src=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fembed%2FiHnFG92Kzxo%3Fwmode%3Dopaque%26feature%3Doembed&amp;wmode=opaque&amp;url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DiHnFG92Kzxo&amp;image=http%3A%2F%2Fi1.ytimg.com%2Fvi%2FiHnFG92Kzxo%2Fhqdefault.jpg&amp;key=ff2702755d9749cda571c6d6c2f3eb46&amp;type=text%2Fhtml&amp;schema=youtube" width="540"></iframe></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> Founded by Antonio Meloto in 2003, Gawad Kalinga aims at getting 5 million families out of poverty by 2024. It has already created over 2000 communities in the Philippines thanks to a partnership with the State, to the help of major corporations like Hyundai &amp; Air France KLM, and universities.</p> <p>    </p> <p> <img alt="Am" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/72979/AM.jpg"></p>

Allocation of funds

<p> Our mission will hopefully take place in the Gawad Kalinga village of Puerto Princesa on Palawan. A first contact with the local populations allowed us to hear their needs and <strong>ideas</strong>, and to elaborate the first projects that we would like to offer them.</p> <p>  </p> <p> We hope to collect at least 1000€ for our mission thanks to the <strong>generosity</strong> of internet users on KissKissBankBank. All raised funds will be dedicated to the financing of the local populations' <strong>projects</strong>. Ideally, we would like to raise 4500€, which would initiate or further the following projects.</p> <p>  </p> <p> Assistance in the village's fishing activity: general management and marketing.</p> <p> (logistic management, creation of new product lines and ranges with added value, market studies, exploration of the potential selling points, elaboration of a communication strategy) </p> <p> Developpement of the crab breeding activity: marketing study of selling points, exporting project, stock control (~ 2500€).</p> <p>  </p> <p> Promotion of social tourism: we would like to turn the village into a must-see touristic spot on the Palawan island. Communication plan, developpement of infrastructures and of tourists-welcoming residences (restaurant, camping spot, hostel, B&amp;B or inn), introduction of leisure activities in the village.</p> <p> Construction of a basketball/volleyball field in the village (~ 2000€).  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Gk3" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/72980/GK3.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> We deeply hope that this project will convince you to<strong> help</strong> us. The Gawad Kalinga communities are a <strong>chance</strong> for millions of Filippinos. Projects seemingly simple like ours can transform the life of hopeless men &amp; women. Our goal is to offer them an <strong>opportunity</strong>, the opportunity to take back the <strong>control </strong>of their lives, to become the master of their destiny.</p> <p>  </p> <p> Only <strong>you</strong> can help us give them<strong> hope</strong>. Thank you!</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p>
