    Description

    Join our multiple projects: kids feeding, mangyan bakery, beach cleaning, food donation, etc...
    Our goal is to support pro-active people!

    We choose profiles with sustainable business-mind. We care about people first and we decided to do it by endorsing people who have ambition, who are pro-active, who are positive people, who try to see solutions when things get tougher. We generate only sustainable projects to benefit the locals: we provide training and education, we support employment, housing, food supply, cleaning facilities and we set-up projects that allow to maintain and improve people’s growth in the long term.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    ECO TURISM AND SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY ARE OUR CORE VALUES.
    We love to share this culture and to develop long term sustainable projects.
    Traveller will benefit from this cultural exchange, discover Philippines traditions in a continuous immersion between teaching and education.

    We aim to alleviate poverty, to develop education for a better living society, with a sense of civilization and environmental protection. We learn from people, we train, we educate, we give chances and possibilities to understand the values behind hard working, to seek opportunities, to enjoy commitment and sacrifice. Our mission is to promote sustainability.

    The Mangyans are the native people on the island of Mindoro and they live in extreme poverty. Their meals often consist of rice only. Thus, we are starting a bakery school where we teach adults and teenager to do bread, pizza, dishes… There are 3 main benefits :
    Diversify the meals of the Mangyan population
    Teach professional skills to people who didn’t have any
    Offer them a revenue from the selling of their products
    -WE HAVE A KIDS FEEDING PROGRAM EVERY FRIDAY-
    We provide teaching and employment programs and other activities such as beach cleaning, gardening, sewing and many more...
