Education projects for children of the Sama-Bajau people on Borneo and in Tawi-Tawi, Philippines.
Borneo Child Aid has for more than 10 years been providing education to more than 2000 children of the sea-nomadic Bajau Laut on Borneo and in Tawi,Tawi, Philippines. Our organisation is presently running 23 mobile learning centres on remote islands in the Sulu Sea.
These children are mostly without other access to education due to poverty and lack of documentation.
