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.

Stop military attacks on Lumad schools in Mindanao!

We are alarmed that 2,896 Lumad children will be denied of their right to education when the Aquino government closes down Lumad community schools in Davao del Norte.

While schools all over the country are slated to start their classes this June, we are convinced that the Department of Education Division of Davao del Norte intends to shut down lumad community schools. In a letter dated May 12 addressed to DepEd Region XI Director Alberto Escobarte, DepEd Division of Davao del Norte Superintendent Josephine Fadul endorsed the closure of at least 24 schools of Salugpongan Ta’Tanu Igkanogon Communi ty Learning Center (STTICLC) and Mindanao Interfaith Services Foundation Inc. Academy (MISFI Academy) .
