El Nido Program

We work with the women weavers of barangay Sibaltan, El Nido, Palawan, and leverage their talents to produce beautiful buri bags and other buri products. Our goal is to scale up their production, improve production processes, and connect weavers to the market.

Aside from working with women weavers, we also made initial steps toward supporting and scaling up community-based enterprises, focusing on cashew production and local “way of life” tourism, in partnership with the Sibaltan Heritage Council.
