The Foundation’s name derives from Palaw’an, the language spoken by the Palaw’an tribe. Rurungan is an indigenous Palawan organizing model. It is a cluster of women, usually related or living in close proximity, that pools their work and resources for craft making, planting and other economic activities. A male member from the tribe, known as the panglima (the mediator), often heads the group. Coincidentally, the Board of Trustees of the Foundation is composed of 4 women and 1 man. Tubod is a local word for “spring”, the source of life-giving water, which sustains and is sustained by ecologically friendly practices.
