The main goal of ALEY-NM is to empower the local youths in Mindanao, give them hope and roots in the barrios where they are living by making the barrios productive, vibrant and a repository of local knowledge at the same time improving the local biodiversity by nurturing the land in a low-external input system (as opposed to high-chemical agriculture) and incorporating crop-trees-animals in a nutrient-cycle, sustainable manner. The organization promotes ecological sanitation and the use of human waste (urine and feces) as fertilizer for the plants realizing that chemical fertilizer harms the environment and knowing that human waste contains valuable nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphate ideal for food security. The ALEY-NM is a winner of the 2010 Ten Accomplished Youth Organization in the Philippines and an awardee of the "Saka" (agriculture) award by the Department of Agriculture. It is the production and marketer of SaniFert (short for sanitation-fertilizer) which is a combination of biochar, feces, effective micro-organisms urine and animal waste.
