The BODY SHOP Foundation
School Caravan : Water for Life Project


L – R :

June 2011 marked a milestone for Aeta settlers of Sitio Camachile Nabuclod, Floridablanca, Pampanga. The long-awaited dream of many villagers had come into realization when The Body Shop Foundation under Asia Pacific Grants Programme provided with fund support to AWECA Foundation, Incorporated for the project ‘School Caravan: Water for Life’ which facilitate the creation of a clean water facility at school, in order to reduce incidence of water- related diseases among students as well as local residents. More or less 181 Aeta students from Camachile Elementary School along with 361 individual settlers will directly benefit on this potable water supply. The facility also helps in irrigating the vegetable crops and tree nursery at school. As part of advocacy on water conservation, settlers are encouraged to grow around 10,000 native trees on six month period that will eventually plant it alongside the riverbanks or watershed areas in the community.

Farming is the main source of livelihood of the Aeta villagers. In response to their needs, almost all (136 families) were given various vegetable seeds and root crops to plant in their own farm land. To ensure that there is a shared responsibility and sense of project ownership; beneficiaries were organized themselves and crafted a common project policies and schemes in terms of seed dispersal. They agreed to use the agricultural support from The Body Shop Foundation as an initial seed capital. They will give back the seeds to the group after harvesting period, so other farmers can also avail agricultural seeds. On this way, farmers are no longer dependent on individual financiers and with that, family’s cash income would increase. Currently, leaders and members are on process of enhancing their knowledge and skills in managing their project through the conduct of capacity-building activities and some relevant training on public health, sanitation, food and nutrition, water management and waste management.
