Quidan-Kaisahan in Negros Occidental
The crew fish using trawl which is cast from the stern. The net is the shape of an open sack with weights on each side and when the net is out the boat cruises along for an hour to catch the fish.
Joseph is 17 and works like his father did on the sea as a fisherman. The catch of the day is hauled in by the entire crew to be sorted out on deck and taken straight to the market in Hinigaran. The catch that day made the crew $12.00 each( Captain Joan $24.00) One day a week Joseph goes to Alternative Learning schooling provided by Quidan-Kaisahan. Quidan-Kaisahan is a charity working in Negros Occidental in the Philippines. Their aim is to keep children out of work to secure them education.
