There is nothing more beautiful than people who go beyond the barriers of cultural differences to spread the good in life.
Last February 25, I joined an outreach program organized by group of travellers – Biyaherong Noypi. The chosen beneficiary was the St. Francis Learning Center Foundation, Inc. in Subic, Zambales. The foundation started in 1991, people back then were contented with what they had, they lived by hunting animals and planting fruits and vegetables but they didn’t know how to read and write.
One day, an aeta approached Sister Junetta and told a story. He was forced to put his thumbmark on a document while someone was pointing a gun on his head, the document was a deed of sale of land. After that day, the aetas had this urge to learn how to read and write so that this incident would not happen again, and that they can protect their territory and belongings.
