Salugpungan Ta' Tanu Igkanogon Community Learning Center is a community based school run by the Rural Missionaries of the Philippines Southern Mindanao Region in cooperation with the Matigsalog Manobo lumads. They have 4 volunteer teachers and approximately 60-100 preschool to grade 4 students who attend classes regularly. The school aims to enhance the life skills and knowledge of the Manobo tribe and teaches the basics of writing, reading and arithmetic. It also envisions to sustain and value their culture and traditions towards a unified defense of their ancestral domain and right to self-determination.

The school is located in a remote sitio of Brgy. Mangayon. It is in a small upland community populated mostly by Matigsalog, Manobo lumads who settled in this part of the Diwalwal mountain range since the 1980's.
