About the program:

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 helped the Sibaltan Heritage Council in their tourism initiatives.
