Artistic Expressions in Functional Forms
By NVC Foundation, Inc.


Four and a half years ago, Negrense Volunteers for Change (NVC) Foundation, Inc. was established by a few individuals who sought to create meaningful change in their communities, believing that the sum of many little parts of doing good and can help create positive change in a bigger context.

NVC focuses on three areas: nutrition, education and livelihood.  Growing faster than it expected, NVC has already provided more than 3,920,708 meals of Mingo (an instant blend from rice, mongo and moringa ormalunggay), built 195 classrooms and provided more than 4,682 motorized boats to fishermen in disaster stricken areas of the country.

As part of its endeavors towards the provision of livelihood, an NVC volunteer operates a workshop which trains the poor to ways where they can earn a living from enhanced skills and artistic expressions in the realm of mosaic.  This workshop now provides employment to carpenters and welders, as well as artisans trained to work on various stages of mosaic production.  They come from various poor communities Bacolod and neighboring towns.  Some of the artisans are students whose earnings help support their education.

In addition, NVC partners with artists and volunteers who train women in rural communities, out-of-school youth, the differently abled, and the urban poor to create marketable products, providing them with livelihood opportunities.  They oversee the design, production and marketing of crocheted crafts, fiber and fabric art, and beadwork, among other handcrafted products.

Proceeds from the sales of our artisan crafts help support Negrense Volunteers for Change Foundation, Inc.’s (NVC) programs addressing nutrition, livelihood and education.
