Project ETC is a nonprofit that supports rural and underserved schools in the Philippines. One of the schools we work with in Agsirab, Iloilo Philippines has a team of dedicated teachers that we would like to support as a nonprofit. Watch the video A Day In The Life: Agsirab Elementary School to understand what the teachers do to sacrifice for the students to have a great education. With the help of Project ETC and the unending support of these teachers Agisrab Elementary is now the top performing school in testing! Project ETC will fundraise to build a small teachers dormitory to allow the teachers a better environment to work in during the school weeks, and we hope this video inspires you to donate! projectetc.com/donate
For the poorest children in the Philippines primary education is an asset often out of reach. Hidden costs in the public education system prevent many who are living in subsistence from ever receiving a proper education. Deprived of this asset of education, a child’s chances of escaping poverty are dramatically reduced.
To ensure that children stay in school, ICM provides Elementary Scholarships to all our Jumpstart Kindergarten graduates who start first grade, and continues to support them until they graduate rom primary school.

On November 10, 2013 typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) ripped through the Philippines leaving a path of death and destruction. Less than 12 hours later a Facebook message was posted looking to collect and send donated items to help the survivors. Within nine days, 73 boxes began the journey to new homes in the Philippines.
I was very honoured to be invited to speak at the Ilocano Ngarud Society Christmas Party regarding our Typhoon Haiyan humanitarian effort. It was especially humbling to meet and hug some of the relatives of the recipients of our boxes.
I created this slideshow as a tribute to all those that helped make this possible. I am still in awe of what we did in just 9 days. Our collective grassroots effort serves as a shining example of the power of the human spirit and the force of social networking. You helped heal the world and made it a better place.
