The Philippines Mission Trip

The Aeta Women
The Aeta Women

The Bernasol Educational Foundation's Philippines team completed a very successful trip last month which your generous donations made possible!  We were very excited to bring hope to the Aeta tribe through the building of a cacao plantation.  This project will create many local jobs and will provide sustainability to the tribe for years to come!

Our team met with the Aeta chiefs and pastors in six different regions and relocation camps throughout the province of Zambales to discuss and see the land set aside for the cacao farms. August is their raining season so we were unable to travel too far in the mountains because of flooding and mudslides. It rained each day we were there which made travel extremely difficult.

The other objective was our Vacation Bible School program for the tribe's children and a conferences for the women. Each day we set out to one of the six regions and conducted a VBS for the children and meet with all the women after VBS to discuss and plan additional sustainable projects such as jewelry making or bags/satchels made from flour and rice sacks. Many women had wonderful ideas and designs and only lacked the initial startup costs to purchase supplies. There are many talented women who have offered their services to teach the other women in their village to make the bags and jewelry.

Over the three weeks, we ministered to and fed over 1,100 children and 300 women throughout the six regions. It was a wonderful mission and we appreciate your continued support of our efforts and invite you to share this opportunity to be lifechangers with your friends and family!  Please stay tuned for more updates.
