In 2017, the Rotary Club of Walkerville based in Adelaide, Australia again chose Project Malasakit as beneficiary for their grant. Through this partnership, we were able to provide solar power units to 100 Mangyan households in Sitio Kapihan Bansud Mindoro Oriental. The Mangyan people were delighted that now they have lights in their homes. We also conducated a medical mission and gave school supplies to more than 200 school children in Mindoro.
On top of this, our partnership with Rotary Club of Walkerville was able to construct a daycare center for the mangyan community. Being a remote upland community, the mangyan tribe living int his area will benefit from the daycare center education for their children.
