NVC works with Philippine Eagle Foundation to feed indigenous T’boli children


Mingo Meals for 43 children of the indgenous Filipino T’boli tribe are now on their way to this small barangay of just about a thousand people. Called Batian, it is the T’Boli term for junction of the big river.

Here the tribe plays an important role: they host the nesting territory of the critically endangered Philippine eagle, our country’s national bird. The Philippine Eagle Foundation (PEF) assists the community in managing the surrounding forests as a habitat for this precious and beautiful bird.

Diligent monitoring of kids enrolled in the Mingo nutrition program is a vital component. Field officers monitor and document the weight of a T’boli child in the mountain village of Batian, Maitum, in Sarangani province.

We are happy to support PEF’s social development programs in the community by providing the tribe’s children with daily Mingo Meals for six months to ensure good nutrition and a brighter start in life.
