The Community Empowerment Project seeks to plant ‘empowerment seeds’ for families and communities living in
extreme poverty and poor surroundings. The empowerment seeds lay the foundation for independence and prosperity in
different areas of development programs. When used together with the empowerment gye and ‘watered’, the seeds of the
project provide a long-term basis of self-reliance for all members of the community.
The Mindoro Empowerment Project
This project seeks to support and empower the Manyang people, an ethnic minority living in the severely poor villages of
Amnay, Pyumpon, and Mangahan, in the Mindoro Islands of the Philippines. By establishing connections between
Manyang families and sponsors, the project helps to create a basis for self-independence and empowerment in these
communities. Human Asia seeks to establish the basis for self-independence and empowerment within a given target
period by helping Manyang families.
