Empowering those who are in greater risk

Edicute Incorporated, or Enhancing lives and Developing Indigenous Peoples Communities through Education is a registered, non-profit organization that aims to enable indigenous people with equal opportunities to improve their lives.

It partnered with HAGIBBAT Mangyan Mindoro, a local group composed of the 8 Mangyan tribes to launch "Oplan Sagip Katutubo".

Most of the members of the indigenous groups depend on the informal economy for day to day living. These native groups are highly exposed to the coronavirus due to a lack of water and access to health services. Another reason is the fact that generally, they dwell in overcrowded houses.

With the ongoing community quarantine, the goal of this fundraising is to give indigenous people the power to purchase their family's needs. Donation via online bank transfers or credit cards is deeply encouraged to avoid the donors making bank transactions personally.
