MS. EMIKO OGAWA
A brave, intelligent and sophisticated japanese woman who has the heart to the Filipino community.
Emiko joined a study tour in 1994 at Payatas, where she recognized the poverty situation of the family especially the children. When she came back to Japan, she joined a campaign and started building a team and eventually gained 19 sponsors for the Payatas kids.
Early Phase: 1994-1995
Regular meeting space was at the eaves of our first staff’s house who lives beside Purok 21.
Nanay Cora and Ms. Credo Soccoro. She had a deep concern on education of children.
Smoky, smell fresh garbage, and lots of flies – the environment was not good, but thanks to the experience. But some mothers showed volunteerism even in their survival life.
Salt was functioning as one of the projects of ACCE Manila. So sometimes their meeting held at 2nd floor of Sangkap daycare center.
Liza current Executive Director of ACCE, now ACCESS.
Unlike now, implementation and decision making were mainly done by Japanese.
The first capacity building activity is to conduct Community Health Workers Training.
Then we started (Medical Support Project), in which we distributed reasonable generic medicines.
Feeding project was also implemented.
In July 10, 2000... trashline tragedy happened. It was one of most challenging time for the community and organization. We started emergency assistance from the day it happened.
DEVASTATED BY ONDOY IN 2009
This is also one of unforgettable incidents.
In 2009, big typhoon hit and two Salt centers and open space was broken like this.
Houses were heavily damaged and got mad. From October to January, we did emergency and rehabilitation assistance. and Japanese staff and interns like Togashi san, Masa, Yoppei who are here today, contributed a lot together with Jocelyn, ate Lucy and other staff and volunteers at that time.
This happens when the tsunami and earthquake in Japan happened. The filipino community showed their love and concern to Japan.
