Manila, Philippines, 24 March 2011 – Together with the organizers of Twestival Manila, we would like to invite you and your friends be with one of the many who will join hundreds of cities around the world to support local causes for Twestival at Le Bistro Vert on Valero Street, Salcedo Village, 8pm for JeepNeed.
Unlike other “run for a cause” or “events for a cause” , 100% of the proceeds of this fantastic global event will be donated to JeepneED to help them successfully pilot, operate and sustain their project.
What is JeepNeed?
Jeepneed is a mobile science and tech lab for rural schools in the Philippines
Their mission is to provide community-driven, financially sustainable in-school support in science and technology on a redesigned jeepney that runs on used vegetable oil.
Their goal is to graduate both academics and farmers by reconnecting the disparity between everyday science and the science of inventors.
JeepneED serves as an engaging outdoor learning lab with 10 netbooks, a 3G hub for Internet connectivity, a printer and scanner, a projector, and other basic science materials for a community of 8 to 12 rural public schools.
Its unique and creative approach to enriching the quality of education for Filipino children is a cause worth supporting!
TWESTIVAL Manila will be hosted by yours truly and TJ Manotoc. See you!
