DAR provides farmers with livelihood project

Z WEB REGL 20151109 Camiguin R10 PHOTO1Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries (ARBs) in Camiguin are looking forward to increase their household income after the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) recently turned over a bamboo handicraft-making livelihood project.

Prior to the turn-over, fifteen ARBs, who are members of the San Miguel Multipurpose Cooperative at Tacangon Expanded Agrarian Reform Community in Mahinog, Camiguin, underwent a four-day training on bamboo handicraft making. They were trained on the various techniques in amakan weaving and were taught new designs in making baskets, fans and flower vase made out of bamboo as raw materials.

The training program is part of the DAR’s Village Level Processing Center Enhancement Project (VLPCEP) and it seeks to enhance farmers’ products.

After the training, the farmers displayed their products like bamboo fans, baskets and flower vases, which gained appreciation from local and foreign tourists who visited the display booth of the Department of Trade and Industry.

The training was held on October 18-25, 2015, a week before the start of the yearly celebration of the Lanzones Festival in Camiguin.

The DAR said the San Miguel Multi-Purpose Cooperative would soon acquire a bamboo handicraft processing center before the end of this year. Currently ongoing construction, the building is funded under the VLPCEP to provide the cooperative members a production area as well as display center for their handicraft products. (Reuby Ch.
