Women enterprise, agroforestry opportunities grow in Miarayon

xs_miarayonXavier Science Foundation (XSF) has a project supported by the US Embassy in Manila called Women Education for Cooperative Advancement and Rural Enterprise (WE CARE). The project has just graduated close to a hundred women from different cooperatives in the areas of Lanao del Norte and Bukidnon. In its second phase, it continues to help women start up their own businesses by utilizing local resources and engaging the greater community. XSF brought the awareness of WE CARE to the community in Miarayon during a K-12 senior high school orientation for the parents. Among the key features of the K-12 Senior High School Program are its Technology Livelihood Education and Technical-Vocational Livelihood, which includes agriculture.
