Income Generation

A charity can only function property with enough funds. Most of these are acquired through donations, but that doesn’t mean that it can’t work on its own to generate its own income to fund projects. PCF recognises the need for the charity to gain financial stability and sustainability, and is focused on achieving that through income generation projects in the Philippines, which also involve
the communities we are working with as part of PCF’s system.

 

 

PCF has started its own collection of waste materials from office blocks and schools to provide raw materials to make PCF products. Small quantities of recyclable materials are also sold to help generate funds.
