About the program:

Our Iraya-Mangyan Program is committed to the education and skills training of the indigenous Iraya-Mangyan community of Puerto Galera, Oriental Mindoro. For Sustainable Livelihood, Ayala Foundation helps the Iraya-Mangyan community in Talipanan in reviving their tradition of weaving, particularly in the creation of beautiful and functional nito products. With the help of our donors and partners, we also provide training in dressmaking, electrical skills, masonry, and agriculture, among others.
