Handicraft-Making Training

Giving a second life to what otherwise would have been considered trash such as seeds of the forest, sea shells, scrap bamboo, driftwood, old magazines, and wine bottles is what happens during the foundation’s handicraft-making training sessions. Headed by trainers from Asiano Arts and Crafts, local residents learn a creative alternative source of income that requires minimal capital since the raw materials are readily available.

Weekly training sessions are conducted at Baras Marine and Agriculture Research Center (BMARC).
