Fabio and his family settled in Talipanan beach in the Island of Mindoro in 2013, with the aim to build a beach resort. They discovered that a few meters away from them there was a Mangyan village that counts approximately 1600 inhabitants.
The Mangyans are the native people of the Island, all very genuine and with a pure heart. However they live in extreme poverty, and their meals mainly consist of rice only.
In fact, those who work in the agriculture or in the constructions are usually the only ones contributing with a daily salary of $4 that shall support a family of five people or more. Most of them do manual jobs in exchange for rice or lower daily salaries.
Fabio and his family quickly came up with the idea that they should try to use the structure they just built, Amami Beach Resort, as a mean to develop a project that would alleviate poverty.
