I’ve been continuing to work through the details of the project with the the folks at Task Force Tabang. We’re close but it’s taking longer than expected so I thought I’d send this brief update.
Specifically, I wanted to share some photos. I’ve created three photo sets on Flickr – one each for Project, Sense of Place, and Fiesta.
The breakdown for financial assistance is final.
(Line items in pesos, total converted to US$)
1. Fishing Facilities Dispersal Boats - 3 boats @45,000.00 = 135,000.00 Hudhud (fishing nets) - 11 @10,000 = 110,000.00 2. Housing Assistance 5 houses @10,256.00 = 51,280.00 1 house @22,000.00 = 22,000.00 3. Operational Expenses Coordinator - 12,000.00/mo x 6 mos = 72,000.00 Monitoring - 2000.00/mo x 6 mos = 12,000.00 Total: 402,280.00 Contingency Fund (10%): 40,228.00 Grand Total: 442,508.00 = $9,708.38 (US$1 = 45.58PHP)
– The money has been transferred and is now in a US dollar account in the Philippines.
– I’ll share the project document once it’s final.
More when I have it…
