Alma, a 45-year-old single mother, and Mary, her 4-year-old daughter with Down Syndrome, live in a small hut attached to three medium-sized trees near Cebu City in the Philippines. Although she found herself without stable income, she would never consider leaving Mary in the care of other people. Alma was using an old baby carrier so that Mary could be with her everywhere, whether that was selling produce at the local market or working at a gas station monitoring staff. She promised herself she would make ends meet without compromising hands-on care for Mary. She hoped there was a way to get a sidecar for her old motorcycle so Mary could ride tandem safely. Our Global Village program funded the final payment for Alma’s custom sidecar, and to purchase a new baby seat and two helmets. "Please know that every time I ride the motorbike with Mary in the sidecar, I never forget to say thank-you, especially now that it's raining everyday. We are protected by the roof, able to work, run errands and feed ourselves, all because of the new sidecar!"
DWC began planning an ambitious project with our Costa Rican partner to bring job opportunities and economic growth to the remote indigenous community of Tsinikicha in eastern Costa Rica. The families that live here belong to the Cabécar tribe. Global Village funds have been used to construct latrines, tent platforms and cooking facilities for a hiker’s camp on a popular cross-country eco-trail. Florita, a tribal representative is grateful for DWC donor support. A group of local women in her village now have the infrastructure to generate regular income for their families by providing accommodation and hospitality service for visitors.
