Year 2020: Nobody Goes Hungry

Our Mission

We join the worldwide movement, to end the economy of exclusion and inequality that spawns violence, by building sustainable communities to end hunger & poverty.

What We Do

In this age, money is more powerful than men. We exist to give hope to the victims of monetary enslavement. We build communities where we practice collaborative consumption, an exchange of resources according to need. It is a form of bartering goods between families. Through this, we take money out of the equation and bring back the dignity of families. They do not have to rely on having money to feel wealthy, instead we cultivate talent, hard work and teamwork.

We have open gardens wherein we allow families to plant together and harvest together. They can then use these goods to get medical attention, education, clothing, transportation and other needs from our network of professionals who support our communities.

Model Community Progress Report: 2016

Sta. Rosa Olango Community

Sta. Rosa Community is our model village lead by Rodrigo Legara and consists of energetic families who are very excited to share our vision. They started building early in the year but ended it with a big success! Their community is sustainable and is able to feed two big groups of multiple families: Group 1 and 2. They take turns in the community upkeep. The community offers a center with fresh water, outdoor kitchen, open garden, poultry and now a piggery! It's amazing how much they've grown in the course of a year and how much the families have been transformed.

Help End Poverty

Let's change the way man survives
AGE OF POVERTY AMIDST PLENTY

Studies show hunger persists not because of food production shortage. There are actually plenty of resources —enough to feed the world. The problem is the ability to afford it. With no enough money to buy food, and not enough resources for crop growth, nearly 24% of the Philippines is suffering from extreme hunger.
