TIGRA - TRANSNATIONAL INSTITUTE FORGRASSROOTS RESEARCH AND ACTION is a 501(c) 3 organization and your donation is tax deductible. Donations are managed by Network for Good.
Bantayan Island and other areas in Northern Cebu were directly impacted by Typhoon Yolanda. TIGRA supports relief work that addresses the immediate needs of communities, in partnership with grassroots organizations in Northern Cebu and Bantayan Island. Cash donations will go towards the purchase of priority items like tents, food, water, medicine, etc. TIGRA and its local partners are also committed to a longer-term vision of regeneration and resilience strategies once the relief work has subsided--planting new crops, rebuilding water systems, new ways to deal with waste management, etc. -- all with an eye on local capacity-building and organizing for sustainable community development.
