FTMW - Filipino Tribe Mission Welfare



Madrid municipal belongs together with Carmen municipal to the rice district in Surigao del Sur. Following the highway from Surigao City through the province of Surigao del Norte and through the northern parts of Surigao del Sur, which is a mountainous area, you reach the flat fields right after passing the municipal of Cantilan which border to the municipal of Madrid. After a journey with hillsides and jungle on one side and the Philippine Sea on the other, large green rice fields spreads out. Sometimes you can only see big brown squares, that is the time right after harvest and the new planted rice have not yet grown up.
Madrid is a small municipality and contain small villages of the tribe Manobo that is called Sitio.
The fact that one of our co-operators in the Filipino Tribe organisation lives here has also led to that FTMW has decided to take responsibility of the children that lives here and to try to change their situation.
Here lives no "children of the street", the problem is inversely. As the parents need to work every day in the week in the fields, the elder children has to take care of the home and their younger siblings. Among our sponsor children there is girls that is taken care of by their elder siblings. It is extremely important that they all get a chance to come to the school and get an education of their own, to learn how to read and write, math etc. without being stressed of the responsibility of taking care of their minor siblings at home.

Several of the sponsor children that we introduce for you are from Sitio Tiguis in the village Magsaysay outside the centre of Madrid, but also from the villages of San Vicente and Quirino. The majority of the children belongs to the tribe of Manobo and has ended up outside the society. We want to give them hope and faith for the future in that they through education becomes a natural part of the Philippine society.

For the safety of our children and their families we do not show their pictures online.
