Excellent progress is being made as a working relationship with an international school in Boracay has been established. The Project Team is currently seeking an agreement to partner with, as well as manage, the school in the long term.
Relationships have also been established with the Australian Embassy in Manila and SCEA successfully won a DAP grant to build a community facility with Australian Aid funding.
New sponsorship alliances with Broderick Architects, Datacom, travelTree and ANZ Philippines meant that a significant number of costs on the Leavers2Leaders trip were covered, such as safety equipment for visiting students. Donations to the communities we impacted were secured, including a number of laptops that were delivered to a Christian ministry in Bacolod in 2015.
