Company Description:

The Cartwheel Foundation, Inc. (CFI) was born as a response to the Indigenous Talaandig elders’ request to put up an early childhood school for the young learners of Miarayon, Bukidnon. This community served as the pilot area of CFI’s education program. It was registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) as non-stock, non-profit organization on October 1, 1999. It aims to give indigenous communities a future through quality and culturally-relevant education. It envisions a nation where indigenous Filipino children and adults, having no access to basic services, can exercise their right to have quality education and active participation in community life. Today, after 16 years CFI continues to grow in breadth and in depth with their different programs with the IPs. Its main office is located at #218 Unit F. Malinao St. Bgy. Highway Hills, Mandaluyong City. The foundation has 5 regular staff, 1 part time staff, 13 project /community based staff, 8 volunteers and 9 members of the Board of Trustees.

Its purposes, among others, are “A Philippines where Indigenous Peoples enjoy their rights to quality education, self-determination and active participation in community life; to empower Indigenous Peoples’ communities by harnessing self-sustaining capacities through culturally relevant education; and to become stable and diverse resource base for the sustained delivery of culturally relevant education programs to IP communities”.
