Currently, students and staffs of Discovery and Cobble Hill Elementary Schools, on
Vancouver Island, are sponsoring children in the Philippines.
A group of students at Sisler High School in Winnipeg have taken on a multi-year
commitment to support a daycare facility for aboriginal children in Dupag, a new
settlement area, in northern Luzon, Philippines.
IAT has had volunteers from Lester Pearson College join our program in the
Philippines. In addition, four co-op students from the University of Victoria and
a First Nation's high school student raised funds to travel and spend several
months in the Philippines as volunteers with IAT's program. They developed
projects and assisted with research on alternative healing practices,
genealogy studies, historical background, cultural practices as well as peace
initiatives and conflict resolution amongst the Kalinga tribes people.
More recently, two co-op students from Simon Fraser University joined IAT's
program as volunteers and conducted research and documented some aspects of
the Kalinga culture.
Opportunities are available for individual students, interested in a unique
adventure, to spend part of their school year in Costa Rica at IAT's 175-acre
eco-village site or with students under IATís sponsorship program in the northern Philippines.
Tours for School classes interested in visiting IATís projects in the Philippines or Costa Rica can be arranged.
Anyone interested in IAT's programs or joining its youth division is
