FTMW - Filipino Tribe Mission Welfare



Kabangahan is a small village that belong to Cantilan municipal in Surigao del Sur. Kabangahan is located in the mountains about 30 min. drive with a motorize and is populated by the Manobo tribe. Not far from Kabangahan a little bit longer in the jungle and up the next mountain, the village Langkoag is located, which we also consider in this our work.

When Thor Klaveness visited the village in 2003 with Ebenezer Morales, FTMW was not yet founded, but there was a heart to aid this people alike those that lives in the village of Gacub. Since May 2006 until 2011 has Teodoro and Cholly Bat-ao officially took responsibility for the work in the village and the contact with the children. Teodoro and his wife Zosima, nicknamed Cholly, was representative for an area of the Manobo tribe. Cholly is working within the NCIP, an organ for the indigenous people in the Philippines. Due to inaction in the area, FTMW board has overtaken the responsibility.

Filipino Tribe Mission sees the importance that we in solidarity take responsibility for the people which lives here and will work actively to reach a continuous school and health care in these two villages.
Due to the safety of our children and their families we do not show their pictures online.
