At The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®, we go beyond just coffee and tea. We brew passion with people that overflow with enthusiasm for life and learning.
To celebrate World Indigenous Day, we wanted to recognize the rich heritage and culture of our country’s indigenous people. Our immersions are our way of preserving and keeping their culture alive, reminding them that they matter.
In partnership with MADTravel, CultureShockPh, and Liter of Light, we visited the Aeta and Ifugao communities last August and September, respectively, to exchange lessons and share memories.
The volunteers shared their skills in painting with the children, while the communities taught local games and traditional songs and dances that everyone enjoyed doing together. Apart from these activities, the families in Batad Village, Banaue also received solar lamps and household lights that have now brightened their homes, thanks to Liter of Light.
Each trip was so meaningful, filled with experiences and activities that we shared with each community that we will take with us forever.
