Project Philippines a rousing success for Foundation.
In May 2014, the Doncaster Rovers Foundation team spent ten days in the Philippines helping a variety of causes.
After the Foundation’s 42 hour journey, the team began work with two charities, the Kalauman Centre and Little Children Of The Philippines (LCP).
The first three days were spent at the Kalauman Centre, delivering a summer camp. The programme is designed to bring joy to the young people and the children on the camp were selected from the poorest communities.
The second part of the scheme was helping LCP and helping provide infrastructure, ranging from feeding programmes to education. Staff from the foundation spent time preparing food in kitchens and then delivered it to the different communities.
Staff then spent time in classrooms to help teach Maths and English, following the same academic procedure as in the UK.
In the final two days, staff spent time to help build houses and support different aid workers from around the world.
Chief executive of the Foundation Liam Scully said: “We learnt a great deal from the way the different charities deliver their infrastructure in a very different climate. How they achieve their success on very limited resources is something we can bring back to Doncaster. We donated the funds generously donated from the Bolton Wanderers match and they will make a huge difference.”
