#IAmHampasLupa Youth Campaigners in Action

We, the #IAmHampasLupa Youth Campaigners wish to change the way people see food and farming. Hampas-Lupa, usually used as a derogatory term referring to people in poverty, translates to “tilling the land” and there’s nothing wrong about that.

We call on the next president to include food security, nutrition, and ecological agriculture in their political agenda.

We want concrete action on issues of food security exacerbated by the effects of climate change and El Nino.

Join us in pushing for a safe, sustainable, and climate resilient way of farming.
