Kanawan Elementary School

Kanawan Elementary School, Morong, Bataan

Kanawan Elementary school (160 pupils) which serves another  Aeta village which is located on the scenic  hills of  Morong. This Aeta  community was displaced from their  original village  during the Marcos era, to make way for the building of the Bataan Refugee Center  which  processed thousands of refugees from the Vietnam war.  Those refugees are now doing well in other countries; but ironically, for these indigenous people the Aetas, there has been little change from their impoverished hunter- gatherer lifestyle.

The sailor-participants will have chance of having a first-hand experience of being in a village of Aetas and seeing how they live in those hills.
