On March 30, 2023, The Remote Group celebrated Women’s Month by empowering women from marginalized communities.
We’ve tapped Alaya Women’s Center – a resource center for women and girls currently involved, have exited, and are at risk of being involved in the sex trade in Angeles City, Pampanga. They are also accredited by DepEd as an Alternative Learning System (ALS) provider. This program helps out-of-school youth (and even those of age) gain a junior or senior high school diploma.
The Remote Group team’s donation drive was a success – with over 10+ bags of used clothes received, cash donations which were used to buy hygiene kits for the women, books, food, and other goods were also donated.
As our way of showing support to the community, The Remote Group issued a PHP10,000 cash donation which Alaya will use to buy solar lights to make streets and alleyways brighter and safer for women in their community.
Our team also prepared a program with an icebreaker and a short talk focusing on different career paths they may undertake once they’ve exited the sex trade. Of course, the program wouldn’t be complete without a hearty meal that everyone enjoyed!
We are truly grateful for everyone who lent a hand and donated – your help went a long way and is appreciated by The Remote Group and the women of Alaya.
