ADTREK's Outreach Project: Maagang Pamaskong Handog Sa Cawag

Venue: Sitio Cawag, Brgy. Cawag, Subic, Zambales
Date: November 29-30, 2008 (November 28 ng gabi ang alis ng mga sasama)


We, the Adventure Trekkers Mountaineering Club (ADTrek), are organizing an early Christmas outreach project for our Aeta brothers and sisters in Sitio Cawag, Brgy. Cawag, Subic, Zambales on Nov. 29-30, 2008. This is in line with one of our group's continuous missions in reaching out to the indigenous communities whom we encounter and interact with during our mountaineering activities.

Sitio Cawag can be found near the jump-off point of Mt. Cinco Picos, where we held our 4th Induction Climb last Oct.4-5, 2008. They are a minority group on the outskirts of Subic so they rarely receive help from the local government and non-government organizations (NGO's). Their main sources of livelihood are charcoal-production and wild animal hunting. With the recent onslaught of natural calamities in the area, farming on their lands has not been very fruitful.

Just like our two previous outreach projects in Brgy. Lantuyang, Oriental Mindoro (Mt. Halcon jump-off), we are again asking for your help to make this Christmas merrier for our Aeta brothers in Sitio Cawag. After all, Christmas is the season of giving and sharing our blessings with the needy and less fortunate.

We are targeting to hand out school supplies for the Aeta students and grocery package for the families. If the budget permits us, we will also sponsor a feeding program for the community. Aside from monetary contribution, we will also accept used clothing/slippers/shoes and books.

We also encourage you to inform your family and friends of this outreach project. We are hoping for your positive response on this solicitation. Any little contribution from you will be a big help to our Aeta brothers and sisters. Thank you.

We are also selling these pocket-sized 2009 calendars (PVC laminate material) @ P150 each, as part of our fund raising for this outreach project. You may approach Eric E. to see the actual samples.
