Nurunutan Yang Tagbanua Calamian Tong Calawit May Quezon

Pagsasakapangyarihan ng mga katutubong Tagbanwa Calamian ng NTCQ para sa pangkalahatan, sama-sama at sustenabling pag-unlad

Proposed by the Nurunutan Yang Tagbanua Calamian Tong Calawit may Quezon (NTCQ), Samahan ng mga Nanay ng Calawit, and in partnership with the Partnership of Philippine Support Service Agencies (PHILSSA), aims to strengthen the indigenous community of NTCQ, who were once evicted from their ancestral land but after forming the Balik Calawit Movement (BCM), were able to reclaim their land. As part of the rebuilding process, the action hopes to support the community by providing collective planning platforms and supporting these plans that could potentially centre on creating sustainable livelihood opportunities, and delivery of social services such as a safe water system, health and education, among others.
