We believe that indigenous people deserve a chance to benefit from development and recognize that the best way to achieve this is through providing them a quality education. Indigenous young people recognise the value of education but are vulnerable and can become socially misplaced when they move from villages to attend schools in town. Accessing the right support during the transition can make all the difference and help young people develop skills to adapt and thrive.
The Aetas and Indigenous mountain people of Northern Luzon in the Philippines are among the least served populations on earth from the quality education due to poverty. Giving school supplies and other things they need i their education is a big help.
Every money counts in our work to ensure next generation of Indigenous students have the tools and resources they need for success. I want to thank everyone who will donate this advocacy.
