In Zamboanga Funds for Little Kids (Photos)

Our blog - http://yellowboat.tumblr.com/.

Fund-raising to build boats so little kids in Layag-Layag in Zamboanga City wouldn't need to swim to Talon-Talon Elementary School everyday.

Update: We are now helping the Layag-Layag community in other areas for its development as well: health, livelihood, education, others.

Our philosophy can be shown by this quote:

"The great thing a little lamp can do which the big sun cannot do is to give light at night. It shows no one is superior by size but by purpose. If we cannot do great things, we can do small things in a great way. Little things make a big difference to God."

You can join our fan page at http://www.facebook.com/philippine.funds.

Sahara Turner's curator insight, September 4, 2013 6:19 AM

Seriously, this idea is excellent! Utilizing the plumbing system to be the source of electricity is a perfect concept for every household. Aside from the fact that you can save a lot from your power supply, you are making use of something not-so-important to be a useful one. I never even thought that this can be done.
