Culion at night
Kawil Tours is a Culion-based organization advocating environmental conservation and responsible tourism. Operated by locals and volunteers, the group offers historical tours, island hopping tours, and the like.
It contributes to the general welfare of the community by providing jobs for boatmen; hiring students and out-of-school youth as tour guides; and serving food homemade by mothers in the community. Indeed, Kawil Tours almost ready to present Culion to the rest of the Philippines and the world.
Unfortunately, it lacks one very important thing--its own boat. There are times when they have to cancel tours because there are no boatmen available for island hopping, for example. There are also destinations only found in Culion that only the tour guides of Kawil Tours know best.
Entitled Kawil Tours Tour Boat, the project seeks to raise enough funds (P300,000) for the organization to build their own boat. Here's the official campaign description:
A Kawil-owned boat will serve as a symbolism of connectivity. Help build sea transportation for meaningful journeys in Isla Culion.
With 33 backers, as of publication time, P145,000 has already been raised. Now, they need your help.
