Helping the Sama/Bajau

In many ways the Sama and Bajau (Sama Palaˈu) are an oppressed people. War, domination by other tribes, and cultural misunderstandings have put them in this position. Many such as yourself have noticed this and are looking for ways to help.

The number 1 way to help the Sama and our sub-group the Bajau is through giving them a VOICE! In addition to voice we recognize the benefits of accessible education. We believe that Sinama.org’s online community for Sama does this. We can only do this with two stipulations.

1) We need people who will promote Sinama.org to Sama people.
2) We need content with the goal of education. If you are developing educational material for the Sama/Bajau, we would love to help you share them with Sama throughout the Philippines.

In addition to these two key aspects of our website we are still in search of more ways to help the Sama.

Being a connecting point for livelihood projects between the Sama/Bajau and outside help is a future goal of ours.

Join us in helping our people, the Sama!

p.s. please leave your comments and questions on helping the Sama and the Bajau a subgroup.
