Our Vision

A WORLD WHERE INDIGENOUS PEOPLE HAVE ACCESS TO EDUCATION, EQUITY AND ARE INTEGRAL MEMBERS OF SOCIETY

Empowering Indigenous Lives

At Indigenous Children's Learning Centers, we are dedicated in our support to the lives of indigenous peoples around the world. Too often, indigenous communities find themselves marginalized, living in poverty, and lacking the recognition they rightfully deserve. It is our unwavering commitment to break this cycle and usher in positive change.

Our Commitment to Transparency

We believe in full transparency in our work. Every initiative, every program, and every partnership is driven by the goal of improving the lives of the indigenous communities we collaborate with. As a non-profit, our focus is not on what we gain, but on what they stand to gain from our support.

Community-Based Approach

At ICLC, our work places the community at the center of our efforts. Every project encompasses all facets of the community, from barangay (village) captains and security personnel to indigenous street children and hard-working mothers.

Our Mission

At Indigenous Children's Learning Centers, our mission is to empower vulnerable and marginalized indigenous communities by ensuring access to quality education, fostering economic independence through alternative income generation, and preserving the rich tapestry of their territories, culture, history, and knowledge. We are committed to achieving this mission in an environmentally sustainable manner. By integrating sustainable practices in program implementation, we will empower indigenous communities in securing a worthy future for their children.
