A BUILDING OF HOPE, REFUGE, AND OPPORTUNITY FOR CHILDREN LIVING ON THE SEA
IT'S TIME TO GROW!
If you've given to this project, you'll remember our plan was to construct a 3-story center (pictured here). This plan changed when we were unable to resolve a thorny road access issue. Our latest plan is to scale down our Lighthouse Center to a size that can be constructed without a road for construction equipment. This one-story building, with the option for a second story later, will break ground on this project by April 2017!
Because of this building will not cost as much as we planned, we were able to purchase a second property for another Badjao community that desperately needed land to build their huts. In the spirit of providing a refuge for sea-dwellers, this expansion of our Lighthouse Project to the second location was serendipitous -- we're now helping two communities instead of just one!
If you'd like to contribute, funds are still needed on our second property to help build septic systems and hygienic bathroom facilities. Thank you!
