         Many challenges have been already faced by the indigenous people and they are not understood by others. The indigenous people are defined as people who inhabited a land before it was conquered by colonial societies and they are culturally distinct communities. They are the one who experienced so much poverty and some of them are not reached by the government. Indigenous people shares common things and experiences in the history like they have been killed tortured and slaved by others. The ILO Indigenous and Tribal Peoples Convention, 1989 contains specific provisions on social protection: “Governments shall do everything possible to prevent any discrimination between workers belonging to the peoples concerned and other workers, in particular as regards: medical and social assistance, occupational safety and health, all social security benefits and any other occupationally related benefits, and housing”.

         Our group mission is to give aid to the poverty of indigenous people with their tribes. The Lumads, Ifugaos and Igorots are the main target of our group to help. The group is committed to provide basic needs to them and livelihood project to make them have a living. We want a cultural transformation towards achieving our goal for indigenous people. Also we want to strengthen the solidarity and build a partnership with other non -governmental organizations to protect the ancestral domains. Our petition wants to protect, promote and respect the indigenous people.

       Our group vision is to empower the rights of the indigenous people while preserving their culture. Recognizing the indigenous people will be a big help for them and to maintain peace in our nation. The purpose of this topic is to provide livelihood program to come up with an alternative idea. We are aiming a good service for the indigenous people in order to have a fair condition and a deserving treatment for them. 

       We as a group of students has organized a petition for indigenous people and we want to give them attention to help them by the government or other people. Indigenous people are often face difficulties in accessing social protection, benefits that usually result of discrimination, economic and social disadvantages. This petition will be the voice to reach the government because they are not giving much attention on this. This will also serve as an end of discrimination to the indigenous people and be a good start for their lives to make a good living, permanent source of food, and medical assistance should be provided to them. 

        All of the people have the rights to accept. According to some laws in the Philippines, the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, adopted by the General Assembly in 2007, states that indigenous peoples have the right, without discrimination, to the improvement of their economic and social conditions. These include, for instance, access to education, employment, vocational training and retraining, housing, sanitation, health and social security. States shall take effective measures and, where appropriate, special measures to ensure continuing improvement of their economic and social conditions. Particular attention shall be paid to the rights and special needs of indigenous older persons, women, youth, children and persons with disabilities.

        This project needs a financial support in order to implement this, It covers such broad varieties of indigenous people and we are hoping that you can help us. For this project we are raising charity for those indigenous people who lack a lot of things and even your trashes might be a treasure for them. This project will help those indigenous people who live along us and the fund we are talking will help those indigenous people to have solar panels and they will have a free electric power and they can now have a light when the night comes we need to help those people because they're the one who take care of our mother nature and they're helping us to protect our environment, fight climate change and they build resilience to fight natural disasters. Also the fund will came for providing them a livelihood program. We will also conduct seminar to them so if you want to participate with us, we are willing to welcome you. 

       We need a short period of your time to sign in to our petition and like this so that our advocacy will be possible. So if you are interested to participate and support this just go to change.org and like our petition.
