The Bunong people are fighting for their future

The indigenous community of the Bunong is affected by land grabbing by international rubber companies. The loss of their land forces the Bunong to settle down and give up their traditional cultivation method. Our partner organisation BIPA (Bunong Indigenous People Association) has recognised that organic farming is an alternative type of agriculture that allows the small farmers to cultivate the little land that remains to them. In addition to securing their livelihood, organic farming encourages the Bunong to work together again and thus strengthens the community.
