THE livelihood program for women in Metro Manila’s poor communities which was launched by non government organization Ecumenical Institute for Labor Education and Research (Eiler) has been named one of the nine finalists in Project Inspire’s “5 Minutes to Change the World.”
An annual initiative sponsored by the UN Women’s National Committee Singapore and MasterCard, Project Inspire lets young people from all over the world share their life-changing ideas and fulfill their vision of a better world for disadvantaged women and children in the Asia/Pacific region, Middle East and Africa.
