It is my honor to share to you that our small project at Sitio Kangko, a Tboli community in South Cotabato, is finally finished. Their only potable water source is now fully covered and the exposed bamboos are also replaced with PVC pipes.
Project Aerie showed me that South Cotabato is far from the war-torn region described by a popular Asin song. Since its provincehood forty years ago, it has been aggressively positioning itself to become one of the major eco-tourism destinations in the Philippines.
There is nothing like waking up to the gushing sound of Hikong Bente at the 7 Falls in Lake Sebu, Southern Philippines. Although we camped out far from the cascade, we could still feel the gentle rumble of the ground beneath our tents.
