Building Sustainability in the Philippines: Cacao Plantation
One of the Bernasol Educational Foundation’s main goals in the Philippines is to develop a large cacao plantation on the land of the Aeta tribal group, creating jobs for the local tribe members so that they are able to provide for themselves and their families.
The Bernasol Educational Foundation’s founder has met for planning meetings multiple times with the Aetas’ chief, who has worked together with his tribal members to compile an area of about 10,000 acres for the cacao plantation. The Aeta tribe is excited about the project and is ready to get to work establishing the plantation.
The families are happy this project is being brought to them as it will enable them to provide for themselves in a self-sustaining way. They are looking forward to the construction of new schools for their children that this project will make possible, and they know that the outcome will be a better standard of living for the present and better opportunities for their children in the future.
