Daluhay is a non-profit non-government (NGO) environmental organization in the Philippines. The name DALUHAY derived from the Philippine phrase ‘Daloy ng Buhay’ which means Flow of Life in English. We chose this phrase to represent our activities because it captures our idea of what we feel our lives and work are about. Daluhay is dedicated into entering into the Flow of Life in a way that helps the flow to continue, for cultures and for the planet as a whole. We see the connection between the health of the environment and the health of the people as being intrinsically connected.

Where We Work
Daluhay mainly works in the Sierra Madre Mountains, across all eight municipalities of Aurora province. We have also initiated efforts in expanding our landscape and seascape approach across the ten provinces of the North Philippine Sea.
We believe that the participation of the communities that directly rely upon natural resources are very essential in its conservation and protection. Moreover, coordination with different stakeholders play a vital role towards synergistic and effective movement towards healthy community and ecosystems.
