LIVELIHOOD PROJECTS

TO HELP IMPROVE THE LIVES OF FAMILIES IN THE COMMUNITIES WE SERVE, OUR LIVELIHOOD PROJECTS GIVE ADULTS VARIOUS OPPORTUNITIES TO EARN OR INCREASE THEIR INCOME.

PROJECT JOSEPH

In many of the communities where we work, we encounter skilled, talented people who lack the resources to make the most of their abilities. Through Project Joseph, we find donors willing to fill this gap and provide recipients with the means to earn a higher and more stable income.

Livelihood needs vary depending on region and community, but examples include pedicabs, sewing machines, motorbikes, ovens, carpentry tools, and farming supplies.

Accountability and Monitoring

  • We ask recipients to show proof of their skill through products made, a training certificate, or existing employment that uses the skill but with poor compensation.
  • Project Joseph participants sign an agreement with NVC agreeing that the donation is endorsed solely to him or her for operation and livelihood. Thus, the donation cannot be rented out or sold.
  • Field officers regularly monitor participants. NVC reserves the right to withdraw the tool and give it to someone else.

PROJECT JOSEPH NEWS AND STORIES

ARTISANS OF HOPE

NVC Foundation trains artisans to create beautiful, handmade products that frequently sell out wherever they are marketed.

The artisans, as well as the people they support, directly benefit from each item they make. The initiative also helps us raise funds for NVC’s Mingo Feeding Program.

NVC oversees the design, production, and marketing of mosaic art using ceramic tiles, glass, and eggshells, as well as crocheted crafts.

PETER PROJECT

The Peter Project began in early 2013 as an initiative to provide motorized fishing boats to fishermen’s helpers who were earning only about P50 (a little over $1.00) a day, but had the potential to earn more using existing skills if only they had boats of their own.

After supertyphoon Haiyan devastated many parts of the Visayas on November 8, 2013, the project quickly expanded to help fishermen whose boats were destroyed by this disaster, and later other typhoons as well.

The initiative is named after St. Peter the Apostle, who was a fisherman before he was called to be a “fisher of men.”

Our goal is to allow fishermen to reclaim their source of income as soon as possible, reducing the negative impact of the disaster on their lives and that of their families and communities, through generous donations from individuals, charity groups, local governments, and corporations.
