Program

IAT's Global Education Program

IAT's Global Education Program bridges the gap between developed and underdeveloped countries through public education of global issues, and by connecting Canadian students and teachers with those in the Philippines.

Many young volunteers, over the years, have traveled to the Philippines to take part in IAT's projects. Several co-op students from the University of Victoria and Simon Fraser University have volunteered to work with IAT's programs. They conducted and documented their research on various aspects of the Kalinga tribes people. Students with various talents and skills and an adventurous spirit are always welcome.

Student volunteers from

Lester Pearson College BC

During the past 40 years, IAT has worked to increase Canadian awareness of global issues through talks, slide and video presentations to service clubs and schools. Many Canadian youth and adult volunteers have participated in IAT's Philippines program.
 

Several students from Canadian universities, as volunteers through co-op programs, have been involved in conducting research on alternative healing practices, genealogy studies, historical background, cultural practices as well as peace initiatives and conflict resolution in the northern Philippines amongst the Kalinga tribes people.

 

IAT was instrumental in helping the Tsartlip First Nation women to establish a Montessori-based day care facility on their reserve at Brentwood Bay, B.C. IAT volunteers have assisted in several conferences for Indigenous Elders and youth.

Recent Activities

IAT recently shipped six boxes of medical supplies, books and donated computers to projects in the Philippines. IAT is continuously sending boxes of donated equipment, material, and supplies to the Philippines.

IAT also provides Cultural and Practical Experience. Opportunities are still being provided for interns and volunteers to participate in the Philippines programmes or projects.
