El Nido, Palawan

As El Nido, Palawan, continues to become one of the prime tourist destinations in the country, we are working closely with surrounding communities in their efforts toward gaining employment or diversified sources of income.

We work with the women weavers of barangay Sibaltan, El Nido, Palawan, and leverage their weaving talents in producing beautiful buri bags and other buri products. Our goal is scaling their production of buri products, improving production processes, and connecting 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.
