The Aeta children, the indigenous population of the Philippines, come from mountain villages that are located far from anywhere. Because of the distance, it is very difficult for the children studying at our partner school to commute everyday from their villages. The SFLC has therefore built three houses to serve as dormitories for the children while at school, one for the girls, two for the boys. Two full-time and one part-time house mothers supervise the children’s daily routine.
The Center is located at the foot of a mountain near a river. The Aeta children come from different mountain villages all around the region, and on this project, the GiveBack GiveAway crew will be supplying the school with a home economics room, and a playground, so this community can continue their way of life and also learn in a conducive environment.
