AGREA aims to help eradicate poverty for farming and fishing families, to alleviate the effects of climate change and to help establish food security in the Philippines.
A compound of the words ‘Agriculture’ and ‘Gaea’ (Greek for Earth or Mother Earth), AGREA is an agriculture and fisheries focused social enterprise and foundation with a big heart.
Based in Marinduque, the Heart of the Philippines, AGREA has been mobilizing communities, businesses, academia, local and national government, international partners, and keen individuals, in bringing an ‘Ecology of Dignity’ to farming and fishing communities in the island of Marinduque.
