Human Rights Defender of Bulacan

Pagpapaunlad ng Kapasidad ng Malolos United Community Workers Association (MUCWA)

Proposed by the Human Rights Defender of Bulacan (DEFEND-Bulacan), the action aims to build the individual (member) and organizational capacity of MUCWA to engage and access the support of government agencies and the private sector.

Fresh New Leaf

Empowering Informal Workers, Building Hopeful Futures

Imagine a Malolos where informal workers stand united, their voices heard, and their rights championed. This is the inspiring goal driving DEFEND-Bulacan's transformative initiative, "Developing Capacity of Malolos United Community Workers Association (MUCWA)."

  • Livelihood Enhancement: Trainings and partnerships provide access to scholarships, workshops, and resources, empowering members to earn sustainable incomes and improve their families' lives.

Building Networks: DEFEND-Bulacan facilitates collaboration between MUCWA, government agencies, and NGOs, ensuring access to vital support and amplifying advocacy efforts.


Impact that Matters:

  • Sustainable Change: Trainings and collaborations lay the foundation for long-term growth and empowerment, ensuring lasting impact.


A Journey of Collective Action:

  • Addressing Local Needs: Addressing issues like Manila Bay reclamation and housing rights through advocacy and awareness raising ensures solutions resonate with community concerns.

  • Shifting Power Dynamics: Training leaders, forming sector-specific associations, and fostering collaboration empower communities to advocate for themselves and hold leaders accountable.


Challenges and Opportunities:

  • Enhancing Participation: Strategies like shorter, multiple-session trainings and focusing on women's needs can encourage broader community involvement.
