April 2nd, 2016|

We set out to help rebuild a community after the most devastating natural disaster hit the Philippines. We brought emergency aid to the people of Sulangan, built a boat, donated clothing and food and rebuilt a school. Now that most of the village of Sulangan is rebuilt we still want to continue to help make a difference.

Project Sulangan believes that Education is Power in Poverty. After much discussion, we have decided that as a charity, going forward we will focus on providing and improving education for children in the Philippines. This means that Project Sulangan will reach out to the unreachable villages in the Philippines and help to make a difference by rebuilding and building schools, donating educational supplies and funding education.
