Our mission is to listen, explore, restore, sustain, support, and protect the indigenous people - known as the Aeta Tribe - living in the remote areas of the Philippines by creating potable water projects, improving agricultural production with viable and sustainable soil to maximize the nutritional value of food, providing intercultural educational opportunities, promoting ecological and sustainable practices to preserve the forest and fight climate change, and funding other environmental protection projects.
The Aeta Tribe Foundation endeavors to address the chronic food insecurity and water shortages of the Aeta people in the provinces of Bataan, Pampanga, Tarlac, and Zambales. When Mount Pinatubo erupted in 1991, the water and earth were poisoned. Their food and water sources were eliminated. The topography has made their lives vulnerable to a range of natural disasters such as typhoons, floods, and landslides. Since the eruption, they have been struggling to survive.
