One Vision Project

One Vision Project We are here to improve the world and to convince others of their power to do the same.
We are a collection of individuals bonded in a common cause working together for the betterment of humankind.

The air of poverty and hopelessness clouds the dreams of many in the Philippines. Through our collective efforts we wish to bring a glimmer of hope and relief to those that are trying to escape the cyclical nature of generational poverty that they find their families in.

Mission: Our mission is to bring hope to those who feel there is none; to bright the light of knowledge to those who are relegated to darkness; and to empower those who have none to assist their families escape the cycle of poverty.

It is far to easy to turn our back and ignore the least of our brothers even in the social media driven world.
Stop. Think. It takes only one act of kindness.
What does this picture make you want to do today?
Are you going to walk by someone like this today wherever you are because we ‘do not see them?
Or
Are you going to give careful thought and provide that one random act of kindness to restore hope and opportunity for the least of our brothers?
Matthew 25:40 is our version of Christianity. What’s yours?

One Vision Project back in action.
Delivering shirts for the students of Balilit Elementary School to wear. Each student was provided with 2 Tshirts to wear with their school name imprinted. To some it may not seem like much. To the children and teachers their expression said it all. Their eyes and smiles light up the day showing their pride and happiness at having uniform style shirts to wear to school.
Thanks to Rachel, Liz, Raymond, Leo, Mich, and Kuya Brian for assisting this wonderful school and community.

School shirts are done!
Thank you Ate Leo and Ate Mich for your tireless support in this our first undertaking of supplying school shirts.
In the coming month our team will be distributing school shirts to Monicayo Elementary School and Balilit Elementary School. Leo and Mich will lead the effort in Pampanga and Rachel, Ruffa, and Liz will lead the effort in Carigara.
Thank you for your patience and belief in us. This was not an easy task as our volunteer team is separated by over 8,000 miles, 2 separate provinces, and a 12 hour time difference.
Stay tuned for some amazing pics of these wonderful students!

This hard hit community was ravaged by Typhoon Yolanda. The spirit of the community is still strong but the toll of time, lack of resources, lack of work, lack of food is visibly making an impact on these beautiful souls. This community and Barangay San Miguel in meetings like you see with the fisherman in the blue tent and on the ground in their communities have made an appeal to the Yolanda Relief Campaign for assistance in building and repairing boats.

We are still recovering from our 19 day adventure of hope and support to the wonderful people of the Philippines. Here is a brief update on activities underway as a response of our visit:
1. Rachel is coordinating with Balilit Elementary School to get uniform sizes for the students.
2. Leo/Mich are coordinating with Monicayo Elementary School to get uniform sizes for the students.
3. Brian is preparing some boxes with school supplies and other items to ship
4. We are preparing to send classroom posters to Jenny Yap and her wonderful school
5. Brian is hoping to get an audience with Secretary of Education at the Philippine Embassy to talk about our work.
4. You? It's never to late to get involved. Join the fun!

We had the chance to visit the hard hit waterside Barangay San Miguel in Balangiga. The conditions were very sad but you could see the spirit of the fisher families there trying to continue their lives. Dotting the shoreline were fisherman trying to repair their boats with whatever resources they could find. We even encountered fisherman building new boats using materials from previously damaged boats. Sadly the Philippine government did give minimal materials to assist however the wood they provided was not marine-wood and would not last for a fishing boat. The families there were very gracious and shared with us their stories. Their wish from the Yolanda Relief Campaign is assistance in building their fishing boats or buying motors that have been destroyed and lost as a result of the typhoon. Many of the boats we say that were near completion are virtually unusable in the waters that lead into the ocean since they have no motor. Unfortunately these fisherman with no livelihood do not have the resources even to pool together to buy motors to allow themto restart their lives.

Monking and Kuya Gil gave us the opportunity to go see some of the natural side of Carigara. We went down a long winding side road and finally ended up and an amazing little river. The water was crystal clear and cool. After the long hours the team had put in it was a nice respite for us to relax for a little bit and enjoy the beautiful landscape. We hope you enjoy these photos.

We met a little girl and her parents one evening in Ponong. In our discussion the little girl asked if we could come by her classroom. We happily agreed. Unfortunately they day we promised to be there we went to the wrong school. The sad little girl waited and never had her special visitors that day. Kuya Gil communicated with the family and our mistake was discovered. We promised to make it the following day. As we arrived to the school, little Jenniver came out of her classroom and had greeted us so warmly. We played with some kids outside for a few minutes and then went in to the classroom to meet the little boys and girls. They were very shy at first but each of them mustered up the courage to introduce themselves and tell us how old they were. It was surely a magical visit for all of us and you could see the excitement of the kids in the classroom.
From there we passed by the classrooms of the school and handed out some friendly treats to every student and teacher. It was another great day for One Vision Project and the blessings we have been bestowed.

In November and December we asked for your help. In asking for your help we made a promise. We promised to hand deliver the items you entrusted to us to be given to those impacted by Typhoon Yolanda. We shipped 40 boxes and our last shipment was still en-route to our final destination and we needed to make a change in plans. In order to get them distributed by us we needed to have the boxes 2 days sooner than we anticipated. We partnered with our shipper, Manila Forwarders, and they assisted us in arranging to meet our boxes in Tacloban City to expedite them faster to get them distributed. Our goal was accomplished, we picked up the boxes and were on track to deliver everything that we shipped from the United States by hand to our beneficiaries in their communities.
As we arrived to the warehouse there was a small Barangay across the street from the warehouse that we saw some children in. We stopped by there and delivered some sweet treats, shared some laughs, shared some smiles, and shared many hugs.
Once our final 10 boxes were loaded we headed out and back to Carigara. It was there that we made an impromptu stop to give away the last of our candy to what we thought was a small group of children. Once word got out that the we had something fun to give children arrived out of every corner. We asked to form a line, we shrank our portions, but unfortunately on this day we were not able to give something to everyone. It started to get a little risky so we quickly departed for Carigara.

Another day, another stop.
The heat can't stop our mission, the rain can't stop our mission.
Our team loaded up the truck and headed into the back areas far from the main road to deliver goods to another hard hit community. This community was so nice and welcoming to our team. As we normally do, we explained our process and the group was very cooperative and orderly. The distribution was a big success and everyone received items that they could utilize. We are so proud of the support that folks in the United States and Singapore have given us that has allowed us to bring such a positive impact to those hard hit by this unprecedented typhoon.

A meeting was arranged with a group of fisherman and fisherwomen from Barangay Taguite. In this meeting we talked to them at length about their specific needs. The fisherman widely asked for help returning themselves to their livelihood of fishing. For many there is still no work while waiting for outside aid or government intervention to restart their lives. We reviewed with the group the opportunity for home repair kits. This discussion did not go as well as we liked but the enthusiasm for trying to find a way to fish again was quite evident and appeared to be the only focus on their minds. Their bodies looked worn and their faces tired as they asked for help in any way even if it resulted in some fisherman receiving assistance for boats and others left out due to available resources and funding.
After our meeting we took a walk along their ravaged community and walked through the ruble of broken homes and hearts. As always the light in the darkness was the spirit of the adults and children we interacted with. There was a feeling of hope and pending action forthcoming. As we saw in Barangay San Miguel there were fisherman trying to piece their lives back together with found materials and supplies.
