Palawan Project

Goals

Our objective is to raise $10,000 for a freshwater pipeline system project in two Tagbanua villages at Ahn, Santo Nino, Palawan Island, Philippines. We believe that through friends, organizations and local supporters, the health, life and hope of this tribal community will be restored.

“After doing a study for the water project, it was clear that the tribe’s primary source for drinking water for generations has been a river that is contaminated. The tribe has long desired a water system that would tap the only source of fresh water in the area that is 4,500 meters away. Since no one has come to their aid, when the Palawan Peoples Project agreed to work with them, the entire tribe was once again inspired with hope.”
