Opening an Orphanage in Cebu,Philippines
I have had a life long dream to help people, to make a change and to make this a better world for the people I share it with. My dream is to help innocent children that do not have a home and provide them with a place to stay, food and security. All the things in life most people take for granted. I have seen suffering children for too long in Cebu and not being able to help to the amount I know I can, with help from people around the world I know we can make a change and we can make a difference. I am ready to open up a orphanage/childcare center in Cebu, Philippines to save lives. I can not do this alone, therefor I need your help.
I am a fulltime student and a casual worker and I need to raise 10,000 AUD to start my project that will be life long. This includes to rent a house that can provide space for at least 10 children without a family or a place to stay, provide them with the food every person in this world should not have to fight for and basic things such as hygiene products and clothes.
My goal is to raise these children and give them a future, teach them that they are worthy. If possible raise money for these children to attend school to learn how to read and write. But most important of all, my goal is for these children to survive. I am willing to donate my time and my money to make this dream a reality but I need your help.
Any help that I can get is greatly appreciated and all the money I raise goes straight to the childcare center. Make the right choice and save lives.
My history with Cebu, started when I first went to Cebu to work as a volunteer to help children and families in need for a couple of weeks for a school project in Sweden. I soon realized how much it had an effect on me and after my high school graduation in Sweden I moved back to Cebu for a couple of months. For the past 3 years I have been back and forth many times and I have grown to love the beautiful country and the kindhearted people of the Philippines and I feel that I can make a difference for these children, so I will do everything in my power to get my voice heard and to save lives.
Together with every donation there will be an individual email sent out with information on what the money is used for.
Answer to Questions:
What happens with the money I donate?
The money goes into a savings account for "Opening an Orphanage in Cebu" and will not be taken out until the full amount is reached. When money is taken out of the account, each and every person who has donated will get a receipt with information of what the money has been used for. This is to make sure that your money only goes to the children in need.
When will the orphanage open?
This mainly depends on how long it will take to raise the money required to build up and open the orphanage and also to have money for the children's clothing and food for continued time.
32.9% of the Philippines population falls below the poverty line. Cebu was also hit by the Typhoon Haiyan (aka Yolanda) in November 2013 that left many families without homes and spread devastation in northern Cebu province.
Not to mention, that both me and Maria lived in Cebu 3 years ago. We see it as our second home, we love the country and the people of Cebu and we need to see a change for the homeless children around Cebu. A change is very much needed and we are ready to make a change, but we can't do it alone. We need your help.
