Karla Bulan is a 22 year old from Manila, Philippines. As a graduate in Economics from the University of the Philippines, she is currently working for a tech startup and volunteers her free time to contribute to The Noche Buena Project.
The Noche Buena Project is part of the Youth for the United World Philippines. The project began in 2009, when a group of volunteers felt the call to help in the relief effort for Typhoon Ondoy by gathering donations to help a small community in Quezon City that was affected by the flooding of the storm.
Since then, the project has been able to deliver over 10,000 Noche Buena packs, providing Christmas dinners and goods to different communities most in need around the Philippines. They’ve partnered with the community to give back to the community to donate not only relief goods, but also to lend out their hands to uplift those around them.
And in this episode we are going to learn more about her involvement in the Noche Buena Project. And then we will talk about how her experience in working for the Project has shaped her understanding of hope.
Meet Karla Bulan!
