Tacloban: Shielding Children in Eastern Samar from Amihan Season Through Rain Gear Donations
Situated in the North Eastern Region of the Philippines, Eastern Samar is no stranger to the challenges posed by its monsoon climate. The Northeast Monsoon, locally known as Amihan, ushers in cool and dry winds during the “ber” months, causing erratic weather patterns in the region.
Anticipating the onset of the Amihan season, Boldr collaborated with the Llorente Rural Health Unit (RHU) and San Jose SK Officials to make a meaningful impact.

Tacloban: Teaming Up to Transform Lives Through Basketball Officiating
In collaboration with the Basketball Association of the Philippines (BAP) Referee's Commission, Boldr partnered with this initiative that aimed to empower and uplift the lives of 10 beneficiaries through a two-day live-out accreditation for BAP professional referees. This project not only equipped individuals with a valuable skill set in basketball officiating but also created avenues for sustainable livelihoods.
Certified BAP trainers from Manila and Tacloban conducted a structured training program covering basketball rules, officiating techniques, and ethical conduct. After comprehensive training, each participant successfully passed an accreditation exam, obtaining professional referee certification. Beyond skill development, the project had a significant economic impact, as beneficiaries began earning income through their referee services, bringing financial stability and an enhanced quality of life.
This initiative elevated the professional capacities of the beneficiaries and enriched the broader community by providing skilled officials for various basketball events, including local tournaments, school competitions, and community games. For two years, Boldr has proudly partnered with BAP, relying on their officiating expertise during our Boldrlympics sports fest and Boldr Tacloban Basketball club tune-up games.
