EDUCATE

Help spread awareness and educate your local community about the indigenous people's struggle for education and protection of their ancestral lands in Mindanao.  Teach a workshop, show a film screening, organize a fundraiser with your organization, workplace, church, school or community.

 

 
 

ADVOCATE

Defend indigenous people’s rights to self-determination, protection of ancestral lands, basic social services and self-determined development. Help advocate and support legislation and policies that genuinely protect their collective well being against militarization, extractive industries and aggressive development projects.
