With a strong belief in Ecology of Dignity, AGREA Social Programs is set to cultivate human beings to be agents of change. AGREA Social Programs is designed to provide a human-centered approach to technical and life skills programs.
THE FRAMEWORK. AGREA's One-Island Economy Model and Social Programs.
To achieve One-Island Economy in the Province of Marinduque, AGREA implements community-based and organization-based programs supported by training and workshops for individuals that address Zero Waste, Zero Hunger, and Zero Insufficiency.
In order to achieve the One-Island Economy Model, AGREA dissects its programs into three impact areas. The said impact areas aim to thread together economic development, social well-being, and environmental sensitivity.
THREE ZEROS. One Island Economy is economic development with sensitivity to the environment and concern for social well-being.
Our focus is on farmers and fishermen in Marinduque. AGREA believes that their role is as important as any other stakeholder in the goods value chain. AGREA believes that through technology, education and community empowerment, farmers can have a fairer business share, more autonomy, more dignity and a better quality of life.
Among the key components of AGREA Social Programs is Capacity Building. It is a series of training and workshops designed for community-based farmers.
VISUALIZED DREAMS AND ASPIRATIONS. Trainees during the Financial Literacy and Values Formation pose with AGREA President Cherrie Atilano and representatives from DAR Marinduque.
