United Tribes Organization Study Group (UTROS)
UTROS is a think tank that seeks to replace the current confrontational and conflict driven decision making process with a form of decision making based on logical and rational ways of thinking, free of emotional motivations. It involves consultation with various stakeholders and levels within the society. Promotion of sustainable development based on four pillars which are : Moral, Intellectual, Social and Environmental.
What We Do
We introduced Altruism as love and care for other living beings as a necessity to connect us in creating a harmonious society. We believe we could achieve quality education, decent work for families, a healthy environment, less poverty, a better understanding of gender equality, and strong institution. Through education, training, research, community integration, group study, and workshop with the cooperation of youth today we created substantial research and proposal for possible solution for what is good for our society.
Promote sustainable development by practicing and teaching ALTRUISM.
We envision a world with unified purpose of improving quality of life through understanding human and nature.
Our Core Values
Culture of Altruism and Leadership
With integrity and compassion, we consider the welfare of the common good, through empathy for our fellow humans, to be an instrument in making differences and with collaboration. We passionately study, research and figure out how we can contribute for a larger good.
Respect to Diversity and Individuality
Embrace and understand cultural differences and spiritual uniqueness as we believe that each one of us is only a small part of a big picture of living nature.
Dedicated to Humanity and Environmental Awareness
With empowerment and innovation, we engage our research and study group to a larger community with ideas and solutions that will shape the society through effective philanthropy, self-enrichment, social-digital responsibility, and environmentally responsible behaviour and services.
Commitment to Personal Growth and Accountability
With the spirit of optimism, we demand ourselves and members to set high goals and take discipline for continuous development.
United Tribes Organization Study Group (UTROS) in the Philippines was established as a non-profit organization. It started with a spark of ideas from our founder and the result of his research and study about the structure of nature’s organization which holds living beings depending on each other. It initiated his burning desire to look for fellow souls who should share his passion for knowledge. Then, he found this group of young University students in the Philippines whose desire for a better world to live and become its active members. Working together with them, the UTROS story began. Series of discussions and research were made. With the love, care, and cooperation of each member we started creating and developing a dynamic visionary framework for the good of wellbeing where our quality of life depends. The members work together to creates a think tank and nurture great ideas. We aim to create a study group and virtual forum from all domains of science with the cooperation of group of the intelligentsia and with the help of altruist we transport this concept into schemes, products, and services for the common good of humanity. UTROS will initiate, recognize and assess projects and programs in the development and enhancement of the inner potential of humanity fulfilling its needs in a sustainable way.
“The more we thought and act in altruistic way, the closer we deviate to the sense of honor.”

Introduction to Altruism: a task for intelligentsia
Being old is an experience of an unexpected kind. When I was 80 years old I thought I could still solve all problems because I had completed a difficult task before, I thought that my powers would last forever and I founded UTROS, an association to make every population group think about the existence of other populations to eliminate the tensions between them. I thought that a better understanding of each other’s needs and their efforts would be a reason for tolerance and thus, conducive to a peaceful society. The cause of my endeavor was the lifelong quarrel that I experienced between two tribes to the detriment of my homeland Belgium.
I wanted to trace the causes of quarrels between tribes and went to the Philippines where 80 tribes were established. I found the enthusiasm that is typical of the youth for achieving my goal and I founded a study group with university graduates. But it soon became apparent that to achieve the intended goal, deeper research was needed into the origin of man and what drives him to act. The beginning of humanity brings us back to the Creator of all life. Because it was then that human gifts and vices arose, as a source of contention. With the help of the group and scientific resources currently available, it was possible to form an idea of how awe-inspiring and complicated the mechanism that connects all living beings.
The creation story is fascinating. It is now realized how the Creator connected living beings with a binder: the unselfish service through which living beings underlie each other’s energy as a result of an implanted of love and care for other living beings called Altruism. This feeling in which it is the basis of charity and humanitarianism in general. Thus, a gift that has been present in the people since their creation. The opposite is egoism, ignoring how valuable others are. It is also the cause of all the mischief that has struck people for centuries. By consciously recognizing both capital influences on our actions, we also realize that these two feelings are opposites that will lead us either to a happy or unhappy life.
This wisdom teaches us that the development of community spirit with other living beings must be the core of our aspiration on earth. We need the proximity of other people to build social structures. Our fellow human beings are therefore needed to jointly realize what is impossible for a single person. This wisdom is the primary guideline for our lives. We must realize that we are only a small part of a big picture that is living nature. We play only a minimal temporary role alongside millions of peers in the perpetual system in which new living beings are continually being processed by the previous ones. This is how the Creator of all life on earth has designed the gathering together of living beings on earth.
