Lumad communities in partnership with people's grassroots organizations like @nafcon are building and sustaining community schools to provide indigenous youth education that the Philippine government fails to deliver. These schools develop within the communities skills in literacy, numeracy, agriculture, and defending the land from multinational corporations that destroy the environment to extract resources for profit. By contributing to the Lakad 5k for Peace, you will be supporting the Save Our Schools Network, the @salupongan.international schools and the struggle for self-determination and the right to ancestral domain.
