POPI aims to raise awareness of the native wildlife in the Philippines, our indigenous cultures and their craft of fabric weaving, and the amazing people who call these 7,500 islands home. Their mission is to foster a sense of pride and love of the Philippine native animal species and indigenous cultures, in a manner that contributes to the wellbeing of the Filipino people.
They partner with communities of (mostly) women around the Philippines. They provide them with a meaningful, non-environmentally destructive livelihood program that allows them to support their families, learn, bond and grow. Their first community is Muntinlupa, Metro Manila. Their second one in Benguet will be operational in January 2017. Communities in Leyte and Isabella will be next.
When you buy a Popi Pal you allow them to set up and train many more communities around the country.
