The SM Foundation recently marked the graduation of farmers who completed a 14-week training program in modern agricultural methods.

The program, Kabalikat sa Kabuhayan on Sustainable Agriculture Program (KSK-SAP), aims to help marginalized farmers in the Philippines improve their farming practices and economic opportunities.

Moving forward with modern agriculture

The SM group held graduation ceremonies in Tanza, Cavite, and Masinag, Antipolo, for Batches 260 and 254, respectively. The celebration commenced with harvest festivals in their demo farms as well as market tours with SM Markets to explore selling opportunities, and award ceremonies, where they received completion and TESDA NCII certificates.

The KSK-SAP program also provided lectures on financial literacy, business development, and life principles of Henry Sy Sr. These additional components empower the farmer-beneficiaries to not only grow crops but also become agripreneurs, contributing to the nation’s food security.
