A unique approach to not-for-profit outreach

THe rainbow navy

Welcome to TheRainBowNavy, a new not-for-profit project dedicated to supporting marginalized communities and allies in Manila and beyond. We are excited to introduce ourselves and explain how we plan to use donated funds to make a positive impact on the lives of those who need our help the most. 

Greetings Everyone,

I'm Malcolm. Where do I begin? I am a retired Teacher of visually impaired Junior High through High School Students. Being visually impaired myself I believe I had a bit of a knack for it. I was born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and lived and taught most of my adult life in the City of New Orleans. Being in the Big Easy and being blind was not always that easy but my students often made my days seem easier because their young lives were not always as easy as my younger life. I made it a habit to travel when I could, to experience as much of the world as possible. Now that I am retired I get to travel a little farther and experience cultures for longer periods. Those trips have presented me with many amazing opportunities to embrace and experience other cultures. Some of those experiences have been hard-hitting lessons and more than just subtle reminders, given my few challenges, how fortunate I truly am.

One such visit was the year I spent with my Partner in Manila. The Philippines is truly a remarkable chain of islands. The beauty of the islands and the absolute unrestrained hospitality of the Filipino people are truly an experience to behold and share. The sea views and mountain vistas in such proximity were breathtaking no matter what perspective you held at that moment. Being blind I prefer to walk as much as I can, I miss many things being confined in a car. My partner and I often would walk day and night, to take in the sounds and smells, the energy of the city is palpable. My partner would describe to me the sights to match the smells and sounds we would experience on our daily strolls. We learned much on these walks, what the city had to offer, what it still needed to provide and who were the most at risk and more marginalized.

I want to return and, in some way, contribute to the hopes of a better future to those who deserve a chance to live a life they may not have thought possible. The challenge was how to develop a project that would not require annual cycles of fundraising and donating only to repeat the process in the following year. And just like that TheRainBowNavy was born, a commercial Not-For-Profit enterprise maximizing the high points of the city's robust entertainment, travel and tourism market to benefit a segment of the population so often overlooked. It's not an unproven social outreach or business model. I'm not trying to reinvent the wheel, just bring a wheel to a new city and community that could benefit from its presence. This will be a one-time ask to establish a perpetual income that the local community is the beneficiary of. With a little help from you, we can create something that will keep on giving.

Thank you for allowing me to share this brief introduction to TheRainBowNavy, our groundbreaking not-for-profit project that aims to uplift and strengthen marginalized communities in Manila, while highlighting the beauty of the Philippines and its people. We present an exciting opportunity to support the local marginalized communities by launching a modest yacht that will serve as a social and entertainment hub. With your help, we can create a sustainable source of income to address the social, environmental, and economic challenges faced by marginalized individuals on the island.

Project Goals:

  1. Raise $475,000 to purchase and refurbish TheRainBowNavy yacht.

  2. Establish an ongoing revenue stream to support the local Marginalized Communities and Individuals.

  3. Provide employment and education opportunities to create financial independence for Filipino youth.

  4. Strengthen the foundations of Marginalized Communities and Individuals through enhanced resources and support.

  5. Maintain our rewards program with our donors and supporters through discounts on onboard services or nearby local service partners.

Campaign Highlights:

  1. TheRainBowNavy Yacht: Purchase and transform a yacht into a vibrant social hub that caters to international tourists, showcasing the best of Filipino hospitality and the rich cultural diversity of marginalized communities. The yacht will host events, parties, and cultural exchanges, serving as a safe and inclusive space for all. Our transformation will include the installation of renewable energy components, making our boat completely green, off-grid when docked, and employing green fuels when in transit.

  2. Sustainable Tourism: Promote responsible and inclusive tourism by offering international visitors the chance to engage with local marginalized communities and experience the richness of Filipino culture. The proceeds from tourism activities will be dedicated to empowering these communities.

  3. Empowering Marginalized Communities: Through the revenue generated by TheRainBowNavy, we will invest in programs and initiatives that provide support, resources, and opportunities to marginalized individuals. This includes legal services, educational training, and employment assistance, fostering greater inclusivity and economic empowerment through impact grants issued to recipients who will open businesses that directly support local marginalized communities.

  4. Education Scholarships: A significant portion of the perpetual income generated will be allocated towards scholarships for Filipino youth from marginalized communities. By supporting up to six students in our first year, we aim to provide them with the opportunity to attend college and achieve greater financial independence. TheRainBowNavy intends to add six to eight students every year thereafter to broaden our efforts to strengthen local marginalized communities.

  5. Not-For-Profit Operation: We opted to operate as a Not-For-Profit instead of a non-profit to retain our rights to support political candidates and initiatives that advance and protect the rights of marginalized individuals. As a Not-For-Profit, we cannot offer a tax credit or tax rebate, but with the flexibility of a Not-For-Profit, we can reward donors and supporters with free and discounted onboard products and services or products and services through our local partners.

  6. Donate to TheRainBowNavy: Your contribution will go directly towards the purchase and refurbishment of TheRainBowNavy yacht, ensuring a sustainable source of income for local marginalized communities. Every donation, no matter the size, will make a meaningful impact on the lives of marginalized individuals in Manila.

  7. Spread Awareness: Share our campaign with your network, both locally and internationally. Help us raise awareness about the challenges faced by marginalized communities in Manila and the opportunities for positive change. Together, we can make a difference. Share our campaign link(s) (https://gogetfunding.com/TheRainBowNavyFundraiser/ (https://givebutter.com/BvO6TL: https://gofund.me/9650b909; https://fnd.us/The_RainBow_Navy?ref=sh_cCcVQ6; https://igg.me/at/TheRainBowNavy/x/30175889#/)

  8. Volunteer and Collaborate: Join us in organizing events, developing programs, and fostering collaborations. Your skills, expertise, and passion will play a vital role in creating a vibrant and inclusive space on TheRainBowNavy yacht.

  9. Conclusion: By supporting TheRainBowNavy, you will contribute to the transformation of lives within marginalized communities in Manila. Through sustainable tourism, education scholarships, and community empowerment, we can build a brighter future, where marginalized individuals have the resources, opportunities, and support they deserve. Join us on this remarkable journey to uplift and strengthen local marginalized communities, while celebrating the highlights of the Philippines and

  10. its incredible people. Together, we can make a lasting impact and create a more inclusive society for all.

Future Director of restaurant operations and Chef

Hello, my name is ReyMark Estabillo, you can call me Mark. I am a 20-year-old aspiring chef hailing from San Luis, Batangas, Philippines, currently calls Bato, Leyte, home. I am a dedicated third-year student pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Hospitality Management at Bato Institute of Science and Technology.

My journey to success hasn't been without its challenges. His father works as a simple construction worker, while his mother left the family during his last year of high school. I am the middle child in a family of three siblings. His eldest sister, 26, recently graduated from college, while his youngest sister, aged 15, continues her high school education in the province living with our father.

To pursue my education, I have had to make some sacrifices and live with his grandparents in Cebu to be closer to his college. Fortunately, I have received support from Mr. Malcolm, who assists with school expenses and even helped fund his sister's graduation. I look forward to Mr. Malcolm's project's success, which would not only aid in covering my remaining school expenses but also provide him with an opportunity to build a promising career and future.

School is the center of my life but when I have a little free time I enjoy playing volleyball and hitting the gym.

Melai Verzosa

future Director of Employee Resources

Hello Rainbow Family my name is Melai Verzosa. I am 34 years old and I'm from the Philippines.Life in the Philippine is often difficult I lost my Mothers when I was just 9 years old, from asthma. When I was 13 my father was a victim of an alcohol related accident. As the eldest in my family it became my duty to help provide for my younger brothers and sisters.
Because of these challenges I only finished 1st year of high school due to financial problems. I started working in the public markets selling plastic and paper bags to provide for myself and save to send money to my siblings. 
I was fortunate to meet Mr Malcolm. He helped me, first he helped pay for my job training and then gave me a job.
Mr. Malcolm offered me a safe home and he made sure that I could get all of my important legal documents.He made it possible for me to get new clothes, medicines I needed and for the first time in my life I went to the dentist.
I am always thankful for him and his desire to help people like me and I hope I have the chance to continue with him and his new project TheRainBowNavy

My name is Mohammad Efendi and you can call me Affan Affandy.
I am 36 year old and raised in Indonesia, specifically in Lumajang - East Java. I was born from a simple family.
My education is incomplete, I dropped out of school in second grade due to the family's unfavorable economic situation. Since I left school young, I have been working and helping out My mother, because my father died when I was still in the second grade of elementary school. Since my father's father's death, things have changed and the family's economy has also slumped. My mother used to work hard to meet her daily needs and family. We lost my Mother on 30 March 2023 at the age of 80.
I find myself alone in the world and that is not always easy but I try to survive.
I have met a few great people who truly care and have offered to help, like Mr Malcolm, he is like a father to me he helps when he can and says he wishes he was able to do more. He and his family have offered me the chance to work, a home while I go to school, finish my education and see me go to college.
I hope our project is successful and I can have a better future that I hope for.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is TheRainBowNavy project?

TheRainBowNavy is a groundbreaking not-for-profit initiative aimed at strengthening marginalized communities in Manila, Philippines. Our primary focus is to launch a yacht that will serve as a social and entertainment hub, promoting inclusivity, sustainable tourism, and empowerment of marginalized individuals.

How will my donation be used?

Your donation will directly contribute to the purchase and refurbishment of TheRainBowNavy yacht, ensuring a sustainable source of income for local marginalized communities. Funds will also support the relocation of the yacht to its new home, purchase and installation of Green Tech features, initial staff training for their respective jobs, Safety Training (STCW), and their receiving their Seaman's Book.

What are the long-term sustainability plans for TheRainBowNavy?

The project's sustainability is built on a one-time ask to establish a perpetual income stream. TheRainBowNavy aims to generate revenue through tourism, events, and onboard services to fund ongoing support for marginalized communities in Manila. COVID showed us the importance of a reserve to address needs when outside influences might impact revenue generation, so if there is a slowdown affecting income, our staff and scholarship recipients will have sustained support during that period.

How can I get involved beyond donating?

We welcome volunteers and collaborators who can contribute their skills, expertise, and passion to organize events, develop programs, and foster collaborations. Your active involvement is essential in creating a vibrant and inclusive space on TheRainBowNavy yacht.

Can I receive rewards for my donation?

Yes, we offer rewards to our donors and supporters. Depending on your contribution level, you may receive free or discounted onboard products and services, as well as products and services from our local partners.

Is my donation tax-deductible?

TheRainBowNavy operates as a Not-For-Profit, not a non-profit, which means we cannot offer a tax credit or tax rebate. However, your contribution helps create a positive impact on marginalized communities, supports various initiatives, and donors receive rewards.

How will TheRainBowNavy benefit marginalized communities in Manila?

The project's goals include providing education scholarships, employment opportunities, medical grants, and community support to marginalized individuals. It aims to foster greater inclusivity, economic empowerment, and strengthen the foundations of local marginalized communities.

What measures are in place to ensure transparency and accountability?

We are committed to transparency. Regular updates, financial reports, and progress updates will be shared with our supporters. We believe in accountability and ensuring that donations are used for their intended purpose. Posts will be made to our website and the documents section of our LinkedIn profile for review. (https://www.linkedin.com/in/therainbownavy/)

How can I share this campaign with my network?

You can help us by spreading awareness. Share our campaign link(s) (https://gogetfunding.com/TheRainBowNavyFundraiser/; https://givebutter.com/BvO6TL; https://gofund.me/9650b909; https://fnd.us/The_RainBow_Navy?ref=sh_cCcVQ6; https://igg.me/at/TheRainBowNavy/x/30175889#/) with your network, both locally and internationally, to help raise awareness about the challenges faced by marginalized communities in Manila and the opportunities for positive change.

What is the timeline for TheRainBowNavy project?

The timeline for the project will be detailed in our updates. We aim to launch TheRainBowNavy yacht as soon as our funding goal is reached. Regular updates will keep backers informed of our progress. We will post milestones achieved on our website and LinkedIn profile as well as share them on Facebook, Threads, and Twitter (now X).

Risks & Challenges

As we embark on the journey to bring TheRainBowNavy to life, it's essential to acknowledge the potential hurdles we may encounter along the way. While our mission is noble and our goals are clear, like any ambitious endeavor, there are risks and challenges that require our attention and strategic planning. In this section, we will explore these factors, demonstrating our commitment to transparency, adaptability, and our determination to overcome obstacles as we strive to uplift and empower marginalized communities in Manila.

Financial Sustainability:

One of the primary challenges for a not-for-profit enterprise like TheRainBowNavy is ensuring financial sustainability. Relying on a one-time ask to establish perpetual income can be risky, and there's always a possibility of financial shortfalls in the future. The initial plan was developed to minimize shortfalls and to build in measures that would enhance our financial viability by making some initial investments in improvements that would pay dividends well into the future. Our one-time ask takes these costs into consideration as part of the initial budget.

Operational Costs:

Operating and maintaining a yacht can be expensive. The ongoing costs of staffing, maintenance, and overheads must be carefully managed to ensure that the project remains financially viable. The vessel chosen greatly aids our effort to minimize the operational cost factors. Our selected vessel is large enough to support our operational needs but small enough to minimize overall expenses. Technical upgrades ensure operational cost savings well into the future.

Market Competition:

The entertainment, travel, and tourism market can be highly competitive. Attracting tourists and maintaining a steady flow of customers to the yacht may require significant marketing efforts and strategies to stand out. Metro Manila has a population of 13.48 million residents. Manila also boasts a large, vibrant, and active community of marginalized individuals. If that community is calculated at just 5% of the overall population, that is a local customer base of 674,000, not including visiting tourists. While there are many nightclubs, restaurants, and bars in Manila, there are only a handful that cater specifically to marginalized communities. In Metro Manila, this will make TheRainBowNavy a unique and attractive venue to locals and tourists alike.

Sustainability and Environmental Concerns:

While the project aims to be eco-friendly, there may be challenges in ensuring the yacht's continued use of renewable energy components and green fuels. Environmental regulations and changing consumer preferences can also impact the project. The primary use of green tech on the our chosen vessel focuses on the reduction in the use of electricity produced from fossil fuels. This is its most significant environmental impact since TheRainBowNavy is expected to operate dockside yet off the grid. Additional modification of our diesel generators and engines allows us to use biofuels for electrical production and propulsion, thereby converting some of our own waste products into usable fuel. So changes in consumer preferences will have little to no effect on electricity consumption and propulsion on the "Lil Woody."

Community Engagement:

Engaging with the local marginalized communities and ensuring their active involvement and benefit from the project can be challenging. Building trust and understanding the community's specific needs is crucial. As stated before, Metro Manila has a large, vibrant, and very active community of marginalized individuals. There are ample opportunities to engage and embrace the community in a collective partnership to build a better future and leave a strong legacy.

Political and Legal Factors:

As a not-for-profit with the flexibility to support political candidates and initiatives, TheRainBowNavy may encounter political and legal challenges, especially in regions where the rights of marginalized individuals are a sensitive issue. We are sensitive to the impact of politics on business and marginalized communities too. We live in a time that we cannot just sit idly by as the world revolves around us. TheRainBowNavy can participate in candidate or legislative support without planting our flag in the middle of an issue or a campaign. In the end, our efforts in this area are about supporting issues that support marginalized communities, and that does not require us placing our name on anything directly. TheRainBowNavy can be just as impactful and effective without ever broadcasting our contributions, so long as we remain within the bounds of guidelines regulating such activities.

Fundraising and Donor Fatigue:

Over time, fundraising for the same cause can lead to donor fatigue. Maintaining a steady stream of donations and support for the project may require creative approaches. We are sensitive to donor expectations and limitations. No matter how committed to supporting marginalized communities or the environment, there are always limits to what they can contribute. It is the primary reason why we sought a one-time fundraising campaign and committed ourselves to perpetual reinvestment back into the project to maintain our commitment to the communities we support.

Community Acceptance:

The project's success also depends on the acceptance and support of the local community, including businesses and residents in the Manila area. Metro Manila is 86% Catholic, and while the residents have strong religious foundations, 78% of the population see marginalized communities in a positive manner. That said, marginalized communities still lack greatly in some significant areas. The mostly young people, who fall into this category, are expected to be the larger share of recipients benefiting from TheRainBowNavy outreach.

Global and Economic Factors:

Economic downturns or global events like pandemics can impact tourism and discretionary spending, potentially affecting the project's revenue stream. We believe COVID taught us all a valuable lesson in the management of money, and just as families may cut back on discretionary spending, TheRainBowNavy would likely have to do the same too. In addition, we shall establish a fund, a set aside, to bolster our bottom line during such times. This will help see us through while still maintaining the financial commitments already engaged, support our staff, and maintain the valuable experience they have and that we have already invested in.

Project Management:

Effective project management is essential. Ensuring that the project stays on track, meets its goals, and fulfills its promises to donors and the community is a critical challenge. I think we have demonstrated above that we have taken a broad approach when envisioning TheRainBowNavy. Yet we are not know-it-all type people and have already sought out key personnel to fill specific roles in our staffing. Our initial plan established the need for an Advisory Committee and Steering/Nominating Committee, and our website clearly broadcasts who those individuals are and where TheRainBowNavy is in finding those collaborating members. This will greatly free our hands so that we review day-to-day operations but maintain a strong focus on the impact TheRainBowNavy is having to ensure that we, TheRainBowNavy and donors, arrive where we anticipate being, in a timely manner and on or under budget.
