NGOs and communities may not necessarily confront each other. Sew Mates see the role small communities can play to protect and contribute, and how the NGOs could facilitate the development of responsible eco-tourism and conservation of wildlife and habitats.

In 2013 and 2014, we have carried out livelihood projects in different areas in the Philippines:
