Davao Light, AdDU-MICD MOA benefits Matigsalog tribe women’s coop

[ENTERPRISE DEVELOPMENT] Davao Light signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) last September 3 with Ateneo de Davao University-Mindanawon Initiative for Cultural Dialogue (AdDU-MICD) for a capacity-building project for the Matigsalog Tribe in Brgy. Gumitan, Davao City.

Recognizing the potential of the community, the Davao Light team headed by Community Relations Manager Fermin Edillon sought to create a sustaining project for the Gumitan Women Farmer Development Association (GWFDA). The MOA will provide the cooperative with livelihood, technical assistance, and training necessary in operating the solar charging station, allowing them to achieve measurable and sustainable results.

Through these projects, Davao Light hopes to sustain the culture of our Lumad tribes while helping them cope with the fast-changing society.
