Welcome to the Institute of Social Order
The Institute of Social Order, the Philippine Tropical Forests Conservation Foundation (PTFCF), and the local government and select peoples' organizations of Siruma, Camarines Sur once again teamed up to further on-going initiatives on community-based mangrove management.
ISO believes that mangrove nurseries are important in ensuring the high survival rate of the mangrove seedlings used in reforestation projects and in ensuring the biodiversity of mangrove forests. Thus, in cooperation with its partner fisherfolks' organizations, community-based mangrove nurseries are established, maintained, and monitored.
The Institute of Social Order or ISO has continued in its work as one of the social apostolates of the Society of Jesus. It is a non-government organization armed with a mission to uphold the rights and dignity of the poor and marginalized. Presently, ISO has been working with small municipal fishers, the sector considered to be the poorest of the poor in the country.
