Safeguarding the Philippine Rice Terraces Ecosystem for Food Security & Cultural Heritage
Save the Ifugao Terraces Movement
Save the Ifugao Terraces Movement (SITMo) is a federation of individuals and civil society organizations that work for the sustainability of the Philippine Rice Terraces Ecosystem. Our vision is to ensure that the Ifugao Rice Terraces continue to be a rich source of food security, cultural heritage, and biodiversity for present and future generations.
Our People's Organizations (POs) keep us busy these days. The loom weavers and designers sustain our shop. The youth volunteers manage our tourism activities together with our local government. And we maintain our education center for knowledge exchanges and partnerships.
We exist to safeguard the Philippine Rice Terraces World Heritage Site as a cultural landscape and a globally significant agroforestry system through movement building.
Our Education Center
We host conversations in our Indigenous People's Education Center and Community Galleries. Find us here.
