Nothing About Us Without Us: Boses ng Kababaihang (BOKA) Ayta Abellen

Pagpapalalim ng Pag-unawa at Pagpapaunlad ng Kakayanan ng mga Kababaihang Ayta Abellen sa Sama-samang Pamumuno

Last May 28-29, 2018, WLB and Kababaihang Samahan ng Maporac (KASAMA) conducted a capacity building workshop with the Ayta Abellen women from four villages (sitio) in the municipality of Cabangan, province of Zambales.

The workshop focused on assessing the strengths and capacities of the women in terms of organizing alongside the barriers they face as women and as an indigenous community. Moreover, the activity explored the potentials of the women to become leaders beyond their organization – and eventually take on leadership roles in both the private and public sphere – towards improving Ayta Abellen womenโ€™s access to justice and social services.

This project is supported by Voice-Philippines. Voice is an innovative grant facility that supports the most marginalised and discriminated people in ten low- and lower-middle income countries in Africa and Asia.
