It starts with YOU.

The YOUMANITY PINAS Project is an initiative of ADRA Philippines that aims to improve the lives of the country’s most vulnerable communities by working together with people and organizations that are committed to creating positive change. It is a campaign that highlights the role of “YOU” – the individual who can improve other people’s lives by contributing resources, skills and time to projects that matter. It is a call for compassion, conviction and collaboration in order to eradicate poverty and uphold social justice. It is a project the affirms the essence of life and humanity – and it starts with you.

The YOUMANITY PINAS Project hopes to provide better water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) resources to rural and indigenous communities in the Philippines.

Across the country, over 26 million people live with unhygienic facilities, and around 7 million people continue to practice open defecation. This leaves thousands of communities vulnerable to water-, sanitation-, and hygiene-related illnesses and serious environmental hazards, drastically reducing their quality of life.

For this year’s YOUMANITY PINAS Project, ADRA Philippines will install:

for the Agta community in Brgy. Cozo, Casiguran, Aurora. ADRA will also conduct a community-wide campaign on water, health, and sanitation. With these resources, we hope to foster better health practices and cleaner, safer living conditions for our Agta partners.

The Agta community of Casiguran are one of the eleven major Agta Negrito groups in the Philippines. They live in the dense northern forests of Aurora province, ranging over an area of 700 km2 mostly around the municipality of Casiguran. Hunter-gatherers by tradition, they have since transitioned to a rural peasant economy characterized by trade and seasonal farm labor.

 

Today, the Agta have become strangers in their own land. Due to booming populations and economic expansion in Aurora, the forests they live in have been reduced to 3% of their original area. The Agta themselves, from a population of around 1,000 in 1936, have dwindled to around 600 individuals as of 2002. Communities subsist on small patches of crops, foraging and fishing, trading, and paltry wages earned on neighboring farms. While the Agta have strived to adapt to the influx of lowlanders and the structures of civil government, they remain vulnerable due to poverty, discrimination, and the lack of key resources and facilities for health, education, cultural preservation, and sustainable livelihood.
