ETWA supports the setting up of the two school-based poultry projects in M’lang, North Cotabato

The Europe-Third World Association (ETWA Netherlands), a group founded in May 1990 to increase awareness among European Patent Office ( EPO) staff of the problems facing developing countries - the "third world", agreed to fund the setting up of two school-based poultry projects in M’lang, North Cotabato (Mindanao, Philippines). ETWA works together with people in developing countries by helping to finance small-scale self-help projects aimed at promoting sustainable development at local community level.
The approval of the proposal boosts the efforts of WIMLER to support the members of the Parents Teachers Association (PTA) of Dugong Elementary School and M’lang Pilot Elementary School to generate income in order to help poor children to go to school and also to help the schools raise funds to purchase necessary school materials and equipment. This will help the teachers acquire the necessary teaching materials to improve learning environment of the school.
It is the first time that Dugong Elementary School will implement the poultry project while M’lang Pilot Elementary School will expand its project from 300 layers to 600 layers. The project will directly benefit poor pupils from the two schools and the members of the PTA. The PTA members both teachers and parents are managing both projects.
