March 3-4, 2016. A group of 25 farmers from the Paquibato District of Davao City attended a 2-day Coffee For Peace Training at the PeaceBuilders Community Center where we train our prospective coffee farming partners about ‘peace’ and ‘coffee’. This is done within the framework of Peace and Reconciliation (PAR) principles and practices.
The participants were pre-qualified based on farming experience, community leadership, and ability to share this particular training back to their respective communities.
The training was conducted by Joji Pantoja (CEO), Jobelyn Basas (ICT), and Byron Pantoja (Bean Trading) with the support of the whole CFP-PBCI family.
This Farmers’ Training Program by Coffee For Peace is an on-going Inclusive Development Initiative of PeaceBuilders Community.
In Davao City, we do this training program in partnership with the Department of Trade and Industry – Davao City Field Office (DTI-DCFO) and Councillor Marissa Salvador-Abella of Davao City.
