    They belong to a poor, nomadic community that was driven out of coastline areas during an armed rebellion.

    A sailing school is reaching out to different communities so that hundreds of children are able to attend classes.

    Al Jazeera's Jamela Alindogan reports from Zamboanga city in southern Philippines.
