The Kindred Nomad Outreach Program: Gilutungan Island

Everyday, especially on weekends, the Gilutungan channel is dotted with dozens upon dozens of boats… carrying tourists to its famed Gilutungan Marine Sanctuary. People pose for shots. post photos, laugh, and have a great time.

But do you know what goes on on the other side of the island? Over 100 families live on this tiny island, majority of them are young families… and all are dependent on the ocean. This is a fishing island after all. When you get past the front that tourists see… you will be shocked at the level of poverty of these people. Barefoot children with bloated tummies are a very common site.
