Company for an association of blind people in the Philippines, € 4050
On Cebu Island our project finder is setting up a cooperation for blind musicians and masseurs. They could find work in hotels, but live in a slum to far too far from those. Moreover, they don’t have money for ‘marketing’.
In a slum in Cebu City 15 blind adults with their 39 partners and children share one simple house with less than one room per family. They are living under very difficult circumstances and some of the children are malnourished. The meager income comes from a Rondalla Band, giving massages, begging and selling fashion accessories.
That income would be much better if they could join forces. Our project finder on Cebu Island (who also has set up a now well running fishing cooperative for which we paid a second hand boat) now plans to set up the Cebu Blind Association. Currently, the blind sometimes are brought by family-members with public transport to the airport, where they then play with the band at the entrance, or to the big hotels, where they offer themselves as entertainment or massage therapists, but then they, of course, still have to see if there is work.
It would be better to advertise, have a little office with a phone number for appointments and a second hand van for transport (which is at the same time a moving advertisment). According to the calculations of our project finder revenues in the first year are sufficient to provide everyone a fair income and to bear the cost and there will there be a modest profit in the second year.
