Zone One Tondo (ZOTO)

Zone One Tondo (ZOTO) employs a creative approach that incorporates music and video, interactive workshops, and peer education to build the capacity and skills of disadvantaged urban migrant youth.

EMpower’s 4th grant to ZOTO provides leadership training to community youth to equip them to 1) be armed as disaster risk reduction coordinators who can be quickly mobilized to assist their communities during typhoon season or in the event of other disasters and 2) lead efforts to claim rights such as education, health care, and social protection.
