The Japan Fund for Poverty Reduction through the Asian Development Bank (ADB) is granting $1.5M assistance to BayaniJuan in Calauan, the relocation site of the Pasig River clean-up.
The grant aims to promote partnerships and innovation in poor and undeserved communities and to develop the capacities of Bayanijuan residents for self-governance and community development to be implemented by the ABS-CBN Foundation Inc., with the National Housing Authority as executing government agency. The ADB hopes to create a model for public-private partnerships and replicate it in various parts of the country.
