KAKAI was formed in 2003 and is a SEC-registered service oriented organization based in Bgy. Sta Juliana, Capas, Tarlac operating in thirteen Aeta sitios between the O’Donnell River and the Zambales provincial and San Jose, Tarlac municipal boundaries.
The primary strategy of the organization is to partner with Aeta communities to build their capacities to claim their ancestral land rights, access basic services, and develop culture-based leadership. The guiding principle of the organization is to “help the people help themselves” to ensure that at the end of the partnership, the Aeta communities themselves will be able to effectively address issues that affect them. Thus, KAKAI is committed to the process of consciousness-raising in order to achieve its goals.
