Dear Fellow Peace Advocates,
Greetings of peace and good will!
I spend most of my life for almost 15 years, working in the region of Mindanao both in the beautiful Island provinces and in mainland. I have extensive experienced working with along survivors of armed conflict in the evacuation camps.
I am working on some project like mobilizing school supplies for the children especially the Sama de Laut/ Sama de leya (Bajao) Women, Children and youth of Sulu and Tawi- Tawi.
Just recently, as I organized a provincial adolescence and youth meeting with line agencies, I conducted orientation on adolescence with focal person from government line agencies. I learned that majority of the adolescence experiencing early marriage and early pregnancy and are Sama de Laut/ Sama de leya (Bajao).
According to some teachers from the community of Bajao, who shared a story of the reason why children of Sama de Laut and Sama de leya are not attending school because there is "lack of school supplies, no scholarships and other major issues are they are being discriminated. Also, the lack of capacity building in the community of Sama de Laut and Sama de leya participation.
In this light, we would like to ask support from your organization and your community to support our campaign the "EQUIPPED TO LEARN CAMPAIGN". The supplies (i.e. use school bags, books (for the community library), notebook, crayons, and other supplies for arts) is a big help to boost and motivate this children and youth to education. The campaign will run from December - June 2021.
Currently working on some fund sourcing for my community in Basilan, Sulu and Tawi- Tawi. Working with cultural group leaders and religious leaders in the community of Island Province of Mindanao (i.e. Basilan, Sulu, Tawi- Tawi and Zamboanga peninsula) as community development worker, organizer, area coordinator and field staff (provide humanitarian services-through volunteerism).
Looking forward to hear from you, should you have some suggestions feel free to email me at email@example.com Please feel free to share to your community.
