Support our Aeta Scholars


A Try Local PH and Aeta Ako, Pilipino Ako Inc fundraiser for the benefit of 17 Indigenous Scholars.

₱275,000.00 funding goal
23 backers
37% funded


TryLocalPH is a community driven platform that supports local brands and Filipino businesses around the world. Together we can share the concepts and movements that shape our global Filipino cultural landscape.

Last year our community raised Php 35,500 in just 24 hours to provide 462 indigenous school children school supplies facilitated by Aeta Ako, Pilipino Ako Inc. An organization established in 2020 to assist Aeta children and their families in Capas, Tarlac. 

Over the next few days we are hoping to raise Php 275,000 to send 17 Aeta Scholars to college this incoming semester.

These scholars have excellent grades and most of them with the desire to become teachers, come back and share the gift of education with their own communities.


We believe in the power of community and the impact it has on the now and for future generations.

With our over 60,000 strong community all it would take is just a small number or all to help us raise the funds needed to help all seventeen scholars enroll this August. 

We are looking for the following donations to help make the dreams of these scholars a reality! 

In partnership with The Spark Project and Paymongo, this campaign can accept donations via Credit Card and online transfers. 

We can also accept donations via Gcash to 0917 832 0301 (KR*****E DE***E N.) - Please add the message "#giveTLPH"
