LIVELIHOOD PROJECT
This project facilitates collective action and learning among CNHS 1975 alumni members in addressing the needs of our less fortunate batch mates. In parallel with this are the activities to facilitate implementation of  long-term management plan based on proper considerations over several scenarios, taking into account their implications for people’s livelihoods and the environment.
The Padyak Project will attempt to alleviate some of our batch mate’s lives. This project will also address four questions:

Can this project improve their lives and increase their earning capabilities rather than what they are doing now?

Under what conditions the project will produce impacts on local livelihood.?  

What are the most appropriate mechanisms and ideas to facilitate the project?

Under what conditions will members continue to support us with this project ?

Expected Impacts

We expect that the project will produce positive impacts on our less fortunate batch mates. The project will target local beneficiaries over time. Expected impacts include improved capacities of members, in forms of improved skills, knowledge, and awareness, to communicate, assist us with future projects, monitor, and improve their implementation.

In October 2006 Rene Prudente , together with Ernie and Vinia Avila called a meeting at Cheffoo Restaurant. There they presented the projects which the alumni were involved. The attendees were in awe of the ambitious projects, so much so that in enforced the strength of the CNHS 1975 alumni members residing in the Philippines. At the end of the dinner Php18,000 were raised from donations to start the CNHS 1975 Foundation - Cavite Chapter.

CNHS 1975 Foundation will continue to support projects that will benefit our less fortunate batch mates. Please contact your local foundation representative for more information..

  1. Here are some of the comments we got from our first batch of Padyak recipients:

    * From PERLITA SALAZAR

    ” Maganda ang inyong proyekto. Malaking kagaangan and magkakaroon kami ng sarili naming padyak. Kami ng aking buong pamilya ay taos pusong nagpapasalamat sa inyong lahat na nasa likod ng proyektong ito…. mga nasa U.S.A. at Philippine CNHS 1975 Foundation. Alam ko na marami pa kayong matutulungan sa mga darating na panahon. Maraming salamat din po sa scholarship na ipinagkaloob ninyo sa anak kong si Alpe Dela Rea. Kahit one year ay nabahaginan ninyo kami . Graduating sa siya this year. Salamat po sa lahat ng tulong ninyo na ipinagkaloob sa ating mga ka-batch. Kami po ay lagi ninyong binibigyan ang mga biyayang galing sa langit. Dalangin ko na mas marami pang mga blessing ang dumating sa inyong lahat. More power to all of you and may God bless you all.”
