After the Nona Typhoon struck, in December 2015, central Philippines and in particular Mindoro Island, among the spread destruction, the little Elementary School of the Pinamalayan Municipality went partially dismantled because of the landslides following the Typhoon.
Kito Onlus immediately started to tackle the emergency by trying to find the funds needed for the reconstruction of the School, that would allow 275 children to have back a roof under which following classes, given that it is months since they have to attend school outdoor or in temporary shelters.
We are happy to announce that the project is finally going to start in these days, also thanks to the cooperation between Kito Onlus and ASF – Architetti Senza Frontiere Veneto Onlus.
In fact, just last week, Stefania, Architect and Volunteer of ASF, departed to reach Philippines and to manage the work in the construction site that in the next period will bring to the rebuilding of the School.
The project aim is to complete the reconstruction of the three destroyed classes and it is been programmed together with the Association of Parents of the children studying in the school. They will also work with us in the construction site in order to provide back their children with a safe and accessible place to grow study and learn. In this sense, we want to respect our social solidarity efforts and give local community the possibility to internalize the project, principles at the core of Kito Onlus action.
