Children of the Sea

The “Children of the Sea” features the lives of our fellow Filipinos (Bajau Laut) in Sabah and the challenges they encounter with the Malaysian authorities. The video also highlighted The Society for Education of Underprivileged Children, known as Persatuan Kebajikan Pendidikan Kanak-Kanak Miskin(PKPKM), a Sabah-based non-government organization providing basic education and care for some of the most vulnerable and marginalized children in Sabah. The documentary was created by the Kulczyk Foundation, a non-government organization from Poland.
