Make Life Easier and Happier for the Indigenous Cultural Community Participants of Bukidnon
Much can be done with the Indigenous Cultural Community participants in Bukidnon in terms of bringing in new ways of developing vast denuded swats of long before forested mountain ranges now sadly barren of trees due to illegal logging, and forest fires. The once flourishing jungles where hunting provides ample protein for the villagers, and the once forested lands provide abundant fruit yielding trees and vegetable greens are now barren hills and ridges.
But much can be done with the present circumstance of the world in its global Covid-19 pandemic state where even the indigenous cultural communities are much affected with their livelihood by farming. With the initiative, The Pathway to Life Inc. is planning for sustainable agricultural development, watershed rehabilitation, reforestation, and seeking to provide communities living in the farm area with potable clean water for drinking, and safe road access from farm to market roads. Basic health care for the Indigenous People (IP) of the tribal group is also a concern, let alone much education in the area of sustainable farming to provide the basic livelihood and sustainability of the income for each family, and health education on the global crisis of combatting Covid-29 that may reach this remote tribal village where 6 to 12 people in one family share the same roof with no room isolation system in place once a viral epidemic occurs in a family.
In terms of health care, the organization is also on the hilt of assessing the vaccination status of the community to fend its vulnerable children and adult from the onslaught of polio, dengue fever, malaria, and others, especially for newborn infants and toddlers whose vaccination programs were halted due to fears of going to its closest government hospitals, or Community Health Units (CHU) for fear of Covid-19 viral exposure.
Much still awaits for The Pathway to Life Inc. to do more for this community and we believe that we can only do so with the willing generosity of individual philanthropists, private institutions, and government collaborations who has the sentiment to reach out to our tribal brothers, the Higaonons of Malaybalay, Bukidnon.
