Message from the President
Welcome to Mainitnon, Incorporated website! You must be somebody interested in helping “move the needle” for progress in the world.
Why should you donate to MI? We do effective, efficient, and the much-needed development work in southern Philippines. It is an area in the world that could use a boost. We aim to help these communities achieve self-sufficient, sustainable progress while preserving their culture and enhancing the beauty of their environment. Our specific beneficiary is the town Mainit, Surigao del Norte, located in the northeastern tip of the island of Mindanao (9° 32′ 6″ N, 125° 31′ 23.02″ E).
In this website, you will find the various developmental projects that we have accomplished and continue to undertake: Unang Pagbasa (First Reading)- providing books and augmenting reading programs for elementary schools, e-library for local high schools, potable water installation, vocational courses scholarships, tree planting, medical-dental mission, feeding program, etc. These are the projects that you will help us implement with your donated funds.
Why Mainit? Because that’s where we, the members of MI, are all from. MI is a group of Mainitnon diasporans all over the world. The group is naturally vested in Mainit. We know the lay of the land like the back of our hands. We have the pulse of the communities thru our significant partnerships and our remaining families in the place. We have the local network. We understand the needs, the gaps, and the strengths. We know the culture. We speak the language.
Another reason for our effectiveness is having a reliable local partner organization, Tambayayong Mainit, Inc (TMI). TMI is a Philippine Security Exchange Commission registered civic organization (#CN200831653) based in Mainit. It is composed of a dedicated, vibrant, all-volunteer corps. They are retired and active teachers, government employees, local leaders, and other similar-minded folks all living in Mainit. They are our prime movers, liaison, and project implementers in the locale. MI and TMI have an existing Memorandum of Agreement of cooperation since 2015. Check out their site http://go.mainit.org:8080 for more info and documentation of the projects .
Thank you for your generosity! Your tax-deductible contribution will help fund important development projects in a part of the world that needs it most. Your donation DIRECTLY affects peoples’ lives in these communities. Thank you for being a part of a collective Force for Good in this world!
