Hi there, my name is Faya, and I'm working on my thesis for the last semester of university. It took me almost 7 years before I could get here. I had to take up a few jobs after my mother passed away in 2013 to support myself as a student and as an artist. These jobs have helped me a lot but now I have to focus on my last semester. I hope you can help me out by funding my thesis.
My thesis is about integrating design with the educational materials of Agtas (Indigenous Cultural Community from a province in the North of Luzon, Philippines). This educational campaign aims to empower and protect their culture and heritage by making knowledge more accessible to them. They are in dire need of such information as they continue to face human rights violations and land grabbing from various perpetrators.
The Ancestral Land is their source of livelihood as well as their sacred grounds for their church, burial grounds, hospital and home since time immemorial. Once they are displaced from their land, they are not able to continue their practices and traditions and may then lead to the discontinuation of their culture.
As the location is about 12-14 hours away from Manila, and I have yet to organize and fund a team of 4 people, that will be with me for about 10 days, I need as much help with the expenses (lodging, food, labor, equipment).
I do hope you can help me out. You can always ask me for my thesis so that I may guide you through.
Hoping to hear from you soon. Thank you! And have a nice day.
