As a group we saw the devastation caused by Typhoons Yolanda and Haiyan, and it was sad, for a number of reasons. It highlighted again how much damage natural disasters can cause in countries, unprepared, ill-equipped, and with poor infrastructure. It also highlighted that without the right measures in place, then as sad as this was, this will keep on happening again and again.

 It is unacceptable to simply give money, if it doesn't make a significant change, or else we just end up repeating the same mistakes.

We believe that the way to instil change is to educate and to teach with practical examples. To do this we have built a business case around developing a commercial farm with all facilities built to FEMA standard ( www.fema.gov ). We are hoping to achieve an educational farm that showcases, not only a sustainable energy efficient growing techniques, but also a methodology for rural design that mitigates most natural disasters. We don’t believe we could ever protect against all disasters, but with the right building practices, and detailed natural disaster adaption plans we can at least be prepared.

This is where we need your help. There is a myriad of laws, registrations, and accounts we need to have in place before we can even start. We have the people, the plan, and the desire and enthusiasm to allocate our time in making a difference. We are looking for people to help and really want to make a difference, by helping us in setting up a business, developed and geared to making a significant change by changing the mindset and current practices. We have currently registered a business (Filiponics Inc.), but to get accreditation and government approval to conduct business and education, it requires a number of legal documents to be processed, paid and notarized before approval is even passed,

We currently have pledges from a number of businesses that are keen to showcase a standard to be used in rural development. We have also received pledges from other areas within the government, but all these means very little to us, till we are formed as a business and able to use this and raise awareness. Make a difference and help us raise what we need.

Thanks
