Lanesra Foundation gifts 18 workers with tools of their trade

Lanesra Foundation, a nonprofit whose objective is to help individuals become economically self-sufficient, made it a merry Christmas for 18 recipients in Negros Occidental by giving the gift of livelihood. Under NVC’s Project Joseph, Lanesra partnered with us to identify workers who could increase their income if they were provided a much-needed but unaffordable tool of their trade. 

On December 23, 2017, NVC turned over 9 motorized fishing boats, 6 pedicabs, 2 sets of cooking tools, and 1 set of carpnetry tools to residents in a shoreline community close to Bacolod City.
