Hineleban Foundation Incorporated (HFI) is an ardent advocate of environmental conservation and livelihood development, working as a non-profit, non-stock organization. The Foundation is engaged in the preservation and restoration of the mountain rainforests and critical watersheds, at present in the two provinces ofBukidnon and Lanao del Sur, and plans to scale up as well as expand in other selected provinces on the island of Mindanao.
A main objective is to conserve and protect the rainforests and watersheds by providing livelihood opportunities for some of the most marginalized groups, namely, IP and Muslims, thereby safeguarding ecosystems, reducing poverty and increasing the prospects for sustainable peace and development on the island of Mindanao. Another key associated objective is to provide advice on sound governance and capacity building plans and programs in order to support development and investment efforts on the island of Mindanao (especially Bukidnon and Bangsamoro), so as to facilitate peaceful co-existence of communities of different faiths and ethnic backgrounds.
HFI also provides advisory support to the province of Bukidnon on enviro watershed conservation and consultation services to the BDA of development management.
