The Sun Crew is building brighter futures for women, children and the planet.
The Sun Crew is a grassroots charity based on Siargao Island, the surfing capital of the Philippines. We are working to lift women and children out of poverty and to create sustainable island communities. We use surfing as the tool to get the children and their families involved in our education, sustainability and skills programs. We believe educating women and children is the key to creating effective, lasting change and this belief forms the foundations of our projects to fight poverty and plastic pollution.
RAYS OF CHANGE
The ocean provides rural island communities with food, income and ultimately life and preserving the ocean is at the heart of Sun Crew's mission.
The Sun Crew is educating a generation of children to be custodians of the natural environment. These children will pioneer behaviors to protect their communities from environmental degradation.
The Sun crew also works at a grass roots level to build sustainable island communities. This is done through eco-education, segregation and up-cycling initiatives. These aim to close the plastic loop and remove waste from oceans.
Education (and resources!) are the keys to addressing poverty and plastic pollution in rural communities.
The Sun Crew is working to ensure that children have the skills and education necessary to alleviate poverty and build brighter futures for themselves and their communities.
The Sun Crew uses surfing as a tool to motivate children to pursue their education.
Empowering women and children with knowledge, skills, and opportunities is the best way to create effective, lasting change.
The Sun Crew gives young people the skills, opportunities, and self-belief they need to defy expectations.
We believe that it is not a lack of will, but a lack of resources and support, that prevents women and children from reaching their potential. Our programs aim to provide these missing aspects and empower women and children to change their lives, and their communities, for the better.
