In the municipality of Guadalupe, another new ILO project is helping indigenous people and poor families affected by Haiyan. Working with a local NGO, "sawali" - woven and split bamboo mats found all over The Philippines, are used to construct provisional, low cost housing.

The Guadalupe Community Sawali Enterprise Development Project has two components: the construction of the Sawali Livelihood Centre where the products of the weavers will be exhibited, and the production of Sawali mats and other handmade artisanal bamboo products at a nearby site.

The Sawali weavers cut, split, hammer and skin the bamboo before they pass it on to the weavers. The final product is sold in rolls which are sold for 1,200 pesos each.

The construction of a sheltered production site has doubled production. Before, the weavers were not able to work during the three to four hours of rain that fall here every day.
