Artisans: BYSMP Bless the Children Foundation, Inc.
Our family beach bags are made by mothers whose children participate in the BYSMP Bless the Children Foundation, Inc. (BCFI) Programs in Tondo (Manila - Philippines).
BYSMP Bless the Children Foundation, Inc. is an NGO supported by Chalice Canada. BCFI is based in the poorer and impoverished quarters of Tondo. BCFI develops and implements programs for the development of the family where the main focus is children's education and nutrition. There are special programs for children with different abilities. BCFI also implements medical and dental care programs. One of the major achievements of BCFI is its livelihood program, supporting the mothers of the children to be entrepreneurs. Several successful business have been launched, which have increased their incomes and allowed them to provide more food on the table.
Notadaydream works together with BYSMP Bless the Children Foundation through its livelihood program. Mothers are trained to become seamstresses and bag makers and hence, earn an income for their family.
