Launched with seed funding to respond to disastrous metropolitan flooding in Fall 2012, the Manila chapter began right away addressing pressing environmental issues around the country.

While unpredictable Internet connectivity has created a, achem, bottleneck for regular project reporting, the Chapter is working with partner organizations and maintaining a healthy feed of YouTube videos for several projects they have adopted since their formation.

With a surge of volunteers, we see nothing but good things coming from the heart of the Philippines.

We are very proud to announce yet another opening in the Football for Hope family as the Manica Football for Hope Centre officially opened its doors. The impressive mono-block building sits beautifully in a beautiful landscape. Design Fellows Alina Jeronimo and Paulo Fernandes have done an incredible job throughout the design and construction process: holding meetings with the community; designing a low-impact building; training local workers in a compressed earth block building technique; supervising the construction site; and hosting a native tree planting workshop.

We would like to warmly compliment them and the whole team on another job well done.
