fueled by stories

We started our work because of the story of the Yangil Tribe and their home. This story has sent us across our country meeting new friends, exploring our home, and most importantly, showing us just how powerful stories are when we share them. Stories can change the world-- they're already touching lives.

Our goal is to share the stories of the Philippines to Filipinos, and by doing so, gather more support for those who own these stories. In sharing the stories of our home, we can get a better understanding of what it means to protect it.
