Help Build the VIDES Livelihood and Development Center for Women


Help VIDES Philippines build a livelihood and development center for underprivileged women in Cavite, Philippines. The two-storey facility seeks to provide an avenue for women empowerment, especially in the field of economic independence and sustainability.

The center, which will be built on a 107 square meter lot area, will house a bakery, a sewing room, and a small office which will cater to microcredit and other livelihood projects.

The target beneficiaries of this livelihood and development center are the relocated informal settlers from Barangay 143 in Pasay City to Trece Martires in Cavite. The more than 1,500 households are bereft with viable sources of income due to the remoteness of the relocation site and the unavailability of job opportunities in the community.
