88k Trees

A project to reforest the ancestral lands of the Yangil Tribe of Zambales. Together with the Yangil tribe, For the Future, Bioten, and MAD Travel aim to support the already on-going reforestation project. For just Php 50, you can procure 1 seedling for this growing forest, with Bioten pledging to match every donation made. Imagine a whole new forest in our lifetime! Let's make it real.

Light Project

For many off-grid and vulnerable communities, light is a luxury— when it shouldn't be. Families have resorted to using either dangerous and expensive gas lamps or batteries, some of which they just can't afford daily. For just Php 950, you'll be able to provide 1 family a solar light for up to 5 years. 5 years of clean light can let a family save up to Php 74,400— funds that can now be spent on food, housing, or medicines.

Food not fear

Together with Kids for Kids and AKO.org, we allocate this fund to our priority environmental defender communities: The Tamaraw Rangers, Ipo Rangers, and the Lokal Lab farming community in Siargao. 

Why we're here

For the Future started from a simple idea.

 

"If everyone we knew pledged to plant a tree, we'd have a whole new forest by now." Imagine a whole new forest in our lifetime! It's possible. So in the October of 2019, we started the work.

On our journey towards restoring our lands, we realized reforestation requires more than just trees. And so now we work with the communities that depend on nature-- the people who are also the pillars to this better future. We share the stories of our friends from far-flung places, our indigenous groups who are our real environment defenders, our neighbors who's stories need to be heard.

Here at For the Future, we believe that you don't need to be anyone else to be a person that can change the world (you can take it from our team of artists, data scientists, writers, musicians, and managers). We all come from different roots but are committed to the same goal: making helping easily accessible for you, so you can help empower our partner communities. We aim to simplify the first step towards making your difference for our world. We aim to tell the stories of our friends, and in turn, get more people to listen, then to act.

Imagine a better tomorrow!

Let's make it real.
