  • Organisation

    The Foundation of OND HESED, a Hebrew word for doing compassion and righteousness, traces its roots from the Social Service Ministries of the Oblates of Notre Dame (OND), a local congregation of religious women. Since its establishment in 1999, it successfully broadened its congregational engagements on social and development services by reaching out not only within the confines of the church structures, but also to the most vulnerable and unserved sectors of society regardless of race, ethnic affiliation, religious beliefs, and gender.

    The goals of the organisation are to promote the total well-being of the poor, exploited, deprived, and marginalised people through varied social and development services; to promote peace and reconciliation through dialogue of life with other faiths and culture; and to advance the cause and rights of the indigenous peoples, women, children and persons with disability.

    • Project

      ‘Reclaiming Ancestral Lands, Sustaining Indigenous Culture’ is a 3-year project by the OND HESED Foundation that is implemented in two municipalities in Mindanao. The project supports the Taboli Manobo S’daff Claimants Organisation (TAMASCO) in claiming their Certificate of Ancestral Domain Title (CADT) from the government, and demanding a private entity to move out of their ancestral lands. The project also employs community-based approaches to support the community in managing available resources (tangible and intangible) towards increased productivity, increased access to basic services, and strengthened cultural integrity. OND Hesed Foundation has been existing for seventeen years and has engaged in different community development work, social advocacy, social services and institution building in South Central Mindanao. It has served and continues to serve multi-cultural people, especially in places where few organisations would dare to go.
