KAKKAMPI
 
Projects & Activities 
K
Group
 
Fund
 
Rationale:
 
A
 
good
 
number
 
of 
 
Filipinos
 
does
 
not
 
have
 
access
 
to
 
formal
 
banking
 
system
 
and
 
in
 
times
 
of 
 
financial
 
difficulties
 
sometimes
 
they
 
are
 
forced
 
to
 
go
 
to
 
loan
 
sharks
 
(5/6)
 
that
 
charge
 
very
 
high
 
interest
 
rates.
 
Because
 
of 
 
this
 
KAKKAMPI
 
allocated
 
half 
 
of 
 
membership
 
fee
 
to
 
the
 
K
Group
 
Fund,
 
a
 
fund
 
managed
 
by
 
the
 
K
Group.
 
The
 
K
Group
 
Fund
 
is
 
designed
 
to
 
be
 
the
 
first
 
line
 
of 
 
support
 
and
 
with
 
it;
 
the
 
K
Group
 
can
 
provide
 
support
 
to
 
their
 
members
 
quickly
 
in
 
form
 
of 
 
emergency
 
loans.
 
Description:
 
The
 
K
Group
 
Fund
 
is
 
an
 
emergency
 
fund
 
managed
 
by
 
the
 
K
Group
 
and
 
accessible
 
ONLY
 
to
 
K
Group
 
members
 
in
 
form
 
of 
 
emergency
 
loans.
 
Emergency
 
loans
 
are
 
released
 
with
 
1%
 
interest
 
per
 
month
 
payable
 
in
 
10
 
months.
 
If 
 
the
 
K
Group
 
Fund
 
is
 
not
 
enough
 
for
 
the
 
emergency
 
needs
 
of 
 
the
 
member,
 
the
 
K
Group
 
can
 
request
 
the
 
release
 
of 
 
additional
 
funds
 
from
 
the
 
K
Fund.
 
The
 
K
Group
 
Fund
 
comes
 
from
 
half 
 
of 
 
their
 
membership
 
fee
 
to
 
KAKKAMPI.

K
Fund
 
Rationale:
 
Helping
 
ourselves
 
to
 
make
 
it
 
easier
 
for
 
others
 
to
 
help
 
us”.
 
Because
 
the
 
K
Group
 
fund
 
is
 
directly
 
propotional
 
to
 
the
 
size
 
of 
 
the
 
K
Group,
 
they
 
may
 
not
 
have
 
enough
 
funds
 
to
 
cover
 
the
 
needs
 
of 
 
their
 
members
 
in
 
case
 
of 
 
emergencies.
 
It
 
became
 
important
 
for
 
KAKKAMPI
 
to
 
set
 
up
 
a
 
secondary
 
emergency
 
fund
 
accessible
 
to
 
the
 
K
Groups
 
Description:
 
The
 
K
Fund
 
is
 
an
 
emergency
 
fund
 
managed
 
by
 
the
 
K
Fund
 
Committee
 
which
 
serves
 
as
 
the
 
second
 
line
 
of 
 
support
 
for
 
members
 
of 
 
KAKKAMPI.
 
If 
 
the
 
K
Group
 
Fund
 
is
 
not
 
sufficient
 
and
 
if 
 
requested
 
by
 
the
 
K
Group,
 
an
 
emergency
 
loan
 
can
 
be
 
released
 
from
 
the
 
K
Fund.
 
The
 
funds
 
come
 
from
 
proceeds
 
of 
 
fund
 
raising
 
activities
 
like:
 
Excursions;
 
Bingo
 
Social;
 
Dance
 
Party;
 
Dinner;
 
etc.

K
Chomage
 
Rationale:
 
Many
 
Filipino
 
Migrant
 
Workers
 
does
 
not
 
have
 
 job
 
security.
 
They
 
can
 
be
 
fired
 
anytime
 
without
 
notice
 
and
 
when
 
this
 
happens
 
they
 
become
 
more
 
vulnerable
 
to
 
exploitation.
 
Description:
 
Available
 
to
 
KAKKAMPI
 
members
 
who
 
are
 
out
 
of 
 
work,
 
the
 
program
 
includes
 
an
 
allowance
 
of 
 
300.00
 
CHF

5
 
months
 
and
 
 job
 
search
 
assistance
 
from
 
the
 
network
 
of 
 
K
Groups.
 
While
 
300.00
 
CHF
 
may
 
not
 
be
 
enough
 
KAKKAMPI
 
believes
 
it
 
can
 
help.
 
The
 
Out
of 
Work
 
loan
 
is
 
paid
 
after
 
they
 
find
 
work.

(KIS)
 
Program
 
Rationale:
 
Most,
 
if 
 
not
 
all
 
of 
 
Filipino
 
Migrant
 
Workers
 
go
 
to
 
Switzerland
 
for
 
economic
 
reasons.
 
While
 
they
 
are
 
able
 
to
 
provide
 
their
 
family
 
a
 
decent
 
life
 
in
 
the
 
Philippines
 
with
 
the
 
salaries
 
they
 
have,
 
they
 
fail
 
to
 
prepare
 
for
 
their
 
future
 
and
 
their
 
eventual
 
return
 
to
 
the
 
Philippines.
 
Many
 
planned
 
to
 
live
 
and
 
work
 
in
 
Switzerland
 
away
 
from
 
their
 
family
 
for
 
only
 
up
 
to
 
5
 
years
 
but
 
ended
 
up
 
staying
 
between
 
10
 
to
 
15
 
years
 
because
 
they
 
have
 
no
 
savings
 
and
 
no
 
alternative
 
source
 
of 
 
income
 
in
 
the
 
Philippines.

where
 
K
Group
 
members
 
save
 
100
 
CHF
 
per
 
month
 
of 
 
their
 
salary.
 
The
 
K
Groups
 
are
 
autonomous
 
and
 
function
 
like
 
a
 
small
 
cooperative.
 
As
 
part
 
of 
 
the
 
program,
 
KAKKAMPI
 
will

them
 
cope
 
with
 
the
 
difficulties
 
they
 
encounter.

related
 
to
 
their
 
life
 
here
 
in
 
Switzerland
 
are

KAKKAMPI
 
to
 
learn
 
more
 
about
 
the
 
situation
 
of 
 
Filipino
 
Migrant

and
 
at

being
 
and
 
in
 
general
 
experience
 
varying
 
degrees

Filipino
 
Migrant
 
Workers
 
acquire
 
basic
 
skills
 
in
 
computers
 
to
 
allow
 
them
 
to
 
use
 
technology
 
in
 
their
 
life.
 
They
 
can
 
also
 
use
 
the
 
new
 
skills
 
for
 
self 
 
improvement
 
and
 
retooling
 
which
 
they
 
can
 
use
 
when
 
they
 
eventually

one
 
of 
 
basic
 
need
 
of 
 
a
 
typical
 
Filipino
