Spent an amazing day at the Gawad Kalinga Enchanted Farm!
Built around a GK village, the farm is the showcase of many projects:
⁃ re-establishing use of the land with plantations, animal farm, etc
⁃ An ‘incubator’ to support social entrepreneurs who are providing employment for the families of the village
⁃ An undergraduate school for close kids to attend university, sponsored by GK.
While there I had meeting with the GK Founder, Tony Meloto, to explain the projects aims of People and the Sea. He is supportive and would even like to investigate how we could work in partnership to support coastal communities through responsible tourism within the GK villages in Cebu.
Thanks a lot to Laurence for making this happen, Fabien for all his good advice, see you soon GK!
