Who: Bagong Barrio Education Fund
When: December 2013
Michelle De Guzman, our change maker for this project, volunteers for the Bagong Barrio Education Fund, a small charity which raises funds to help students from the poor Philippine village Bagong Barrio built on a landfill. They focus on education as a means of breaking the cycle of poverty.
This charity is very small and is entirely donation based and volunteer operated. Consequently they are starting to struggle to maintain their database of students and donors in Excel. They worked with RHoK over several RHoK weekends and a few RHoLL to build a website for managing students and donors. The website was functional at the end of the final RHoK but does not look to be actively used.
