Sea Breeze Homeowners’ Association for Taal Volcano Victims

Tugon Project: Isang Proyekto Para Suportahan ang Pangkabuhayang Gawain Ng Mga Inilipat na Pamilya sa Ibaan, Batangas Dahil Sa Pagputok ng Bulkang Taal

The Sea Breeze Homeowner’s Associaton for Taal Volcano Victims is composed of 585 families relocated from various barangays (San Nicolas, Agoncllo, Laurel, Talisay and Balete) affected by the 2020 Taal Volcano eruption whilst in the middle of the pandemic. The group managed to start and set up an economic enterprise (bakery) but it now needs additional resources and funds to establish the group’s cooperative and strengthen its governance and leadership. The group is also supported by the Cooperation for Local Development Solutions Inc.
