Our survey is complete! We finished our baseline survey for two villages in
Bicol (pop. 3,108 and 2,411) and now have hundreds of stats that give us
insight into the needs of the community. Here are a few that stood out to
94% experience food shortages for at least 1 month/year
49% for 3 months or more
31% of children have had diarrhea in last 2 weeks
"Doing good" has become a business strategy.
Buy Tom's shoes and they will give a pair of shoes to someone in need. Buy
bottled water, gum, mints or coffee from Project 7, and much of the profits
help meet seven areas of fundamental needs around the globe.
See how we are doing good...
On July 14 an estimated 800 people gathered on the property of Dignity
Products and Services in Bicol, Philippines to celebrate the dedication of
our first Community Transformation Plant. We wish you could have been
there! As guests arrived they were greeted by music, singers and dancers in
traditional dress from the local High School in the next village - fifty of
them! The atmosphere was filled with praise from the start.
