Sustainable food production empowering young people

The Shining Jewels Children’s Village in the Philippines has a commitment to providing quality education to poor & vulnerable children. The school is located on a 16 ha rural property that has the potential to become self-sustaining by growing all the food required by the community as well as developing food-based enterprises & agri-tourism to generate income. The community is looking for supporters to help them to become sustainable.
