These are the Barangays in the Philippines that we want to have our outreach missions to serve the indigent children. If you are from any of these barangays, please send us an email and photos of indigent children, explain to us the situation of indigent children in your barangay and how you can help us reach them.

1.  Labuan, Zamboanga City. This is my birthplace and I spent 13 years of my life here (since birth to 13 years old: 1972-1985 where I finished my Elementary Education. Now I am coming back to help the poor children like me.)

I and my volunteers had our outreach mission here last March-April, 2009

History of Labuan, Zamboanga City

Barangay Labuan is a coastal Barangay 36 kilometers west of the commercial center of Zamboanga City. The place was used to be occupied only by the Subanen tribe, the “lumad” in Western Mindanao. Labuan’s name was taken from the Subanen word which meant “you fall there”.

Aside from the Subanens, indigenous people like the Tausugs, Samals and Chavacano also settled in Labauan. Intermarriage among these indigenous people encouraged them to stay permanently in this Barangay.

The Legend of Labuan”:

Long before Labuan got its name, the place was occupied only by the natives who were from the Subanen tribe. This tribe was headed by Timuway- the chieftain of the Suibanens. This chief used to sell their agricultural products in Zamboanga City by means of a “balsa” or raft. The agricultural produce included gabi, calabasa and banana. As they kept their trading activities with the people in the city, they were asked where the vegetables/produce came from. The chieftain answered in his language “ditto sug Labu an in bato rampoon.”

Another legend says that during one of the trading as the Subanens were loading their produce in the raft; some people saw them on the shores and shouted “Labu-an-dyon”, which is Subanen mean “you will fall there”.

Labu means ‘let it fall’. From the on, the place where the produce came from became known to be “Labuan.”

After many years of trading, the Subanens developed friendship with the Chavacanos from the city. Many thins were sold to the Chavacanos by the Subanens by trading only. Until such time, one day, a prominent Chavacano family traded the place of Labuan with a ‘native corn mill made of stone’. The prominent Chavacano family transferred to Labuan. The Subanens moved to another place to settle down once again.
