The participating children (ages 7-12 years) from public and private institutions as well as from various cultural communities will be composed of TAUSUG (Jolo), BADJAO (Tawi-Tawi), MAGUINDANAO (Pagadian), HIGAONON (Misamis Oriental), SAMARENO (Calbiga, Samar), ANTIQUENO (San Jose, Antique), BOHOLANO (Tagbilaran), BISAYA (Dumaguete, Negros Oriental), BATANGUENO (Batangas City), MANGYAN (Mindoro), BICOLANO (Naga, Camarines Sur), KALINGA (Baguio-Cordillera), together with students/residents from MARIKINA, PASAY, TONDO and MAKATI.
