Tribal Support and Assistance Project
Upon the start of the foundation’s operations in 1993, priority attention was given to tribal communities around Mt. Apo in line with the vision of empowering upland dwellers and cultural communities capable of self-direction consistent with their common aspirations and values, working in cooperation and unity among themselves and with support groups.
In furtherance of this vision, various tribal support and assistance were implemented under the Tribal Support and Assistance Project (TSAP) related to capacity-building, organizational strengthening and project management. As development partner of the foundation, administrative and logistical support is provided to the Cotabato Tribal Consultative Council for Development, Inc. (CTCCDI) in the implementation of plans and programs and provision of support for the Indigenous Peoples within the 10-km. radius of the Mindanao Geothermal Production Field.
