What started out as the thesis of a group of BS Business Management students under the social entrepreneurship track, TriboCo. Kultura Kamp continued their operations even after they graduated last March this year. These youth are now committed to operate as an independent social enterprise.
Through cultural camps they encourage three things among their participants and partners: to embark, embrace and to empower.
Embark - to immerse among the indigenous groups and experience their way of life.
Embrace - to foster a sense of kinship with our indigenous brothers and sisters to understand, accept, and develop deep respect for their culture and way of life.
Empower - to empower both the indigenous people and the participants.
All this is ultimately geared towards the fight against ethnocentrism - the tendency to believe that one's ethnic or cultural group is centrally important, and that all other groups are measured in relation to one's own.
