This important project aimed to create a Multipurpose Center in the Philippines was born, as a result of the moving journey of the President of Culture Ticino Association, Margherita Maffeis, held at the beginning of 2017. It was a journey full of emotions that allowed us to discover a reality of a world far from us. Moreover, we took the first contact with the Chamber of Commerce of Bulacan, a district in the region of Luzon in the Philippines, with about 3 millions inhabitants. During the journey we met many local authorities as the Deputy Major of Paombong and Maria Lota Gonzales Martin, foundress of Coppa Association (Children of Paombong Philippines Association), with which we created a collaboration and she will be our partner in this project.
