Sunrise comes, School and Water for Mangyans

Kara first visited the town of Bansud Mindoro Oriental in 2001 for "Gamugamo sa Dilim", her documentary about a remote community that lacked access to basic services. Since then she has been coming to Bansud on a regular basis. In 2009, she went back to do another documentary "Ambulansyang de Paa". She visited Sitio Apnagan and instantly fell in love with the Mangyan tribe and their culture of simplicity, humility and bayanihan.

 

The tribe is very poor. They find hope in education. But sadly funds are not enough to build a decent school. Here are some photos of their dilapidated high school. Recently, a private company Group M Philippines was generous to donate some money to Project Malasakit. We are now in the process of constructing a new school for the Mangyans. Salamat sa Malasakit.

 

Let us change the world, one child at a time, one community at a time.
