About the program
Our Iraya-Mangyan Project is committed to the education and skills training of the indigenous Iraya-Mangyan community of Puerto Galera, Talipanan, Oriental Mindoro.
We help the Iraya-Mangyan community in Talipanan in reviving their tradition of weaving, particularly in the creation of beautiful but functional nito baskets. With the help of our donors and partners, we also provide training in sewing, offering guided tours, electrical skills, masonry, and agriculture, among others.
