Every creative person knows the feeling of relief when a difficult aspect of a project is finally resolved. Sometimes this aspect is entirely in the hands of someone else. In our case it was to do with funding. After 8 months of working, wishing and hoping, we finally got a break as we presented our development strategy to the local government here in Ormoc.
The outcome really called for celebration. Mayor of Ormoc City; Richard Gomez, confirmed that the local government not only fully supports our efforts but will also fund the construction of 4 more learning centers in villages around Ormoc City. We are obviously super excited about these news, as it will mean more children will get a safe and secure place to play and develop!
Construction is estimated to begin at the end this year as well as in the beginning of 2018. More updates to follow soon!
