Climate change in the Philippines has become a reality. Every year, the country is hit by about 20 typhoons with the storms getting stronger every time. Ever since typhoon "Haiyan" (the strongest storm in weather records began with over 6.000 casualties), we know that the Filipinos need to prepare for the storms ahead. This is where our project comes in.
Taclob is a social enterprise that produces upcycled backpacks with survival features and distributes them within the country to promote disaster preparedness. All Taclob employees are survivors from the typhoon "Haiyan" disaster and are building up a new life with their earnings from bag production.
For EUR 65.00 pledge you give a child survivor a practical backpack that turns into a life vest in case of flooding. The backpack swims due to two empty PET bottles that are installed on both sides of the backpack. At the same to you help adult survivors build up their livelihood by creating jobs through your "purchase".
