This project successfully concluded with the inauguration of the Fiat Village Livelihood Centre on January 2012 after a 5-month construction period that began in September 2011. The realization of this center would not have been possible without the generous support of our donors, large and small.

Special thanks and acknowledgement to the members of Batang Bayani-Austria, who contributed nearly 5,000 euros from the proceeds of their fund-raising activity to this project.
