During our CWTS Orientation they said that we’re going to the beach for field experience. I was really excited because for me, beach + field experience = adventure (now, I’ m still looking forward for that adventure). I am familiar of what a ‘Tambuyog’ is, what I don’t get is its connection with the fisheries sector. Later did I know that it is a calling for awareness, to be more conscious and act to the hyping needs of the fisher folks.
During our orientation in Tambuyog I learned that they don’t just focus on fisher folks but also the livelihood of families around coastal areas and the coastal area itself. And with this I’ve grasp the idea of why an NGO such as Tambuyog exist. The purpose of the organization doesn’t just revolve around poverty it also includes the worsening state of the environment and natural resources.
So why is the fisheries sector left behind? I think that to eradicate poverty (esp. in the said sector) we have to know its roots. And now the main cause is human activities. I realized that human activities are a series of events, a chain reaction. What we do to the nature, it comes back to us. So I think that allocation of natural resources is one way to help our fisher folks and also to stop the degradation of our environment.
