After Taal eruption, Batangas farmers celebrate harvest day with Aboitiz FoundationAboitizEyes
The Taal volcano eruption in 2020 has inflicted significant damage to livelihood and displaced families in Batangas. To help the communities get back on their feet, Aboitiz Foundation, Inc., the corporate social responsibility arm of the Aboitiz group, partnered with the Batangas Provincial Cooperative Livelihood and Enterprise Development Office (PCLEDO), AgriCarePH and Jewelmer to create an agri-livelihood recovery project and provide backyard gardening assistance to be managed by officers and members of Luntian Farmers of San Sebastian, Mataasnakahoy.
The project includes provision of farm inputs such as seeds, fertilizer, farm tools, capacity building training on farm management, business management, basic accounting, and farming 101 which covers technical skills enhancement of farming.
“We want to see the communities rise from the aftermath of these disasters because we share in the local government’s desire for the families to build back better. We thank our local partners from the LGUs and our individual donors who came together to extend valuable assistance,” Aboitiz Foundation President and COO Maribeth L. Marasigan said.
