Tboli South Cotabato – The Hyu1 Project collaborates with Sitio Kule on selling souvenir items to the tourists and guests of the famous Lake Holon. A big portion of the sales will go directly to Sitio Kule. The money that they will get from selling souvenir items would serve as their fund for their community projects.
The ceremonial Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) signing was conducted on May 28, 2021, at Sitio Kule Barangay Salacafe, with the Hyu1 Project staff, headed by Mizpah Sunshine Ming, and Sitio Kule community, headed by Sitio Leader Herman Muan.
“We hope that our partnership will create opportunities not only for Sitio Kule but also for other neighboring sitios. With this kind of community initiative, we hope that the local artisans of the town will be recognized and their work will be promoted,” said Mizpah.
“With this partnership, we hope that Sitio Kule will build a network and appreciate the value of social entrepreneurship. The Hyu1 Project is committed to help Sitio Kule to have access to additional livelihood income-generating activities that will help them to become a self-sufficient community in the future,” she added.
Sitio Kule is recognized as a model for community-based tourism in the Philippines. Through their bayanihan system, they became an empowered community.
