Challenge

Poverty, hunger, communal violence and limited public health plague Muslim Mindanao, Philippines. Sulu Province remains near the bottom of the UN's worldwide Human Development Index. A school-aged population of some 350,000 children are mostly impoverished and suffering from hunger. Female students are often most affected. We will assist 3 schools with a total of 500 girls to build clean water systems, WASH facilities and adequate nutrition essential for improved health and education.

Solution

We will assist 3 schools with a total of 500 girls to build clean water systems, WASH facilities and adequate nutrition through school lunches cooked by volunteer mothers and grandmothers which are essential for improved health and education. With improved water delivery at each school, we will encourage the expansion of school-based gardens to provide fresh foods at each school.

Long-Term Impact

The long-term positive impact of this program empowers Christian and Muslim communities to learn from each other through their respective best practices. Asia America Initiative serves as a communication bridge. Our social media networks facilitate transparent communication and dispel fear and myths that alienate communities who feel alone and abandoned. Centered in schools, positive interaction and equal treatment of various cultural groups by AAI facilitates mutual respect and inspiration.
