2015 at Kito Onlus

January 2016 is rapidly passing by, and it is time to sum up our 2015 activities, focusing on what the Italian staff has done. Last year has been a very productive year for Kito Onlus, as most of the Italian staff was directly involved in field-activities. In fact, it was inaugurated with the President monitoring mission, who visited both San Fernando La Union and San Francisco Camotes Island between January and February. In this occasion, she was able to verify the very effectiveness of the 2014 projects, whose implementation was definitely successful. In fact, the school L. Tanza is now fully operational also thank to the funds donated by Kito Onlus; through Cash for Work projects 25 houses were rebuilt, and Kito Onlus contributed to the re-forestation of part of the coastal area with about 40,000 native plants in the context of the project Two Million Trees.

Moreover, our interns Liliana and Alessandra carried out the usual three-weeks Health, Hygiene and Prevention trainings together with the local staff. Both of them spent three months in the Philippines, respectively in San Francisco-Camotes Islands and in San Fernando La Union. These trainings aim to transmit basic information on hygiene and prevention of illness and diseases.

Kito Onlus was also engaged in promoting fundraising events in Padova, such as the AperiKito and BurraKito, which were positively welcomed by our supporters and gave us the opportunity to share our common goals of cooperation. Moreover, we participated to several call for proposals as the Chiesa Valdese one, obtaining important funds for implementing our next action.

To achieve this goal, our philosophy is to use as much funds as possible in the field, not forgetting to benefit as many beneficiaries as possible in the processes we bring about.

2015 Annual Report and Resources Allocation

2015 Annual Report has been published in our blog (you can find the Annual Report here). A sight on Kito’s resources deserves attention, since two important aspects emerge.
