DSWD – JSDF Project in Burdeos

A DSWD Region IV – A report on the JSDF Project. Highlighted here was the emerging of indigenous people in Burdeos, the Dumagats, in people empowerment by teaching them how to read, write and calculate, at the same time giving them livelihood opportunities.

Burdeos is an island municipality located in the Polilo group of islands in Quezon Province.

Behind-the-scenes:

Day 1. Vlogging while at the motorboat going to Pollilio Island on the way to Burdeos, Quezon. There I interacted with the locals also going Burdeos. It was a free flowing on-cam conversation discussing life, showbiz, bb gandang hari, the DSWD – JSDF project documentation and anything under the sun.

Day 3. After 3 hours of hiking going to a community of Dumagats, we were expecting not to walk that far again going back to the barrio since it was already high-tide and small bankas could pitch us somewhere in the middle of the forest. It was almost 6pm and we found out that the banka that was supposed to pitch us left already…what happened next…watch the video…

Day 4. After visiting 4 Barangay islands in Burdeos, we are finally going back to the town proper. But before that we went to an island they called Pulong Buhangin. It’s an island that disappears during high-tides. This is one of a kind experience…
