"Give a person a fish & you feed them for a day. Teach a person to fish & you feed them for a lifetime"

 

Little Heroes' Dream, Engineering Good and Base Builds Bahay are collaborating to create a sustainable eco-project for the future of the children and community in Bohol!

  • Build a new children's home for 50 children on a new site that is less susceptible to natural disasters

  • Build a portfolio of commercial establishments - private school, ECO hotel, restaurant, organic farm, and tourist shops

  • Build up the necessary capabilities to empower the community to run the commercial establishments successfully

  • The profits generated by the commercial establishments will in turn fund the children's home 

Being a sustainable eco-project means that the donations towards funding the cost of the project (estimated to be US$ 500k would create a lasting impact.   Instead of spending US$ 500k that will impact 50 children over the next 12 years, we want to make an impact to 400 children in need over the next 50 years and improve the overall Bohol community.
