Badjao Tribe Children Support

AHAN Nippon Kan supports the Badjao tribe, an ocean migrant tribe of immigrants that have settled near Illigan City, home of AHAN Mindanao. In 2013, after serving meals for over three years, AHAN built the New Life Learning Center for the Badjao people.

A few days ago AHAN Mindanao gave the New Life Center a fresh coat of paint to ready for the School Start Celebration. The Badjao children and their families are not registered as citizens with the local government therefore are not allowed to attend local public schools.

Ava Yancha Sensei, AHAN Mindanao Coordinator, Nippon Kan Uchideshi Graduate and Instructor and her dojo student volunteers hold school classes for the Badjao children every Sunday. On this day, school supplies were given to the kids provided by donations to AHAN Mindanao.
