Batiti Ground Inc. had it s first outreach last December 3, 2016 in Ajuy, Iloilo, Philippines. Batiti partnered with Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative to promote empowerment of indigenous people youth in Panay IsLand.
“YoUnified All-In (or INclusive) Panay Island” wishes to promote empowerment of young leaders coming from indigenous people’s groups in Panay Island, Philippines. This event is funded by US Department of State – Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative (YSEALI) through a cooperative agreement with World Learning and was granted to Saving Innocent Lives Amidst War (SILAW) Inc. through its founder, myself, Jarrah S.
