The community of GK Diteki is from the indigenous Filipino tribe called
the Altas. The community’s home is one of the last few remaining thriving watersheds and rainforests in the country. This beautiful environment has survived over the years despite the threat of deforestation due to illegal logging. Despite being surrounded by lush forests and a steady supply of water, the community still faces unemployment and lack of economic opportunities.
Together with some families from the community, we are working on sustainable tourism which helps employ members who have unique skill sets most city folk don’t: local guides with vast knowledge on forestry, herbal medicine, and ethnic culture. Through native food and storytelling, we help unlock the authentic narrative of the Altas, one many of our history books may have overlooked.
